When I first wrote out the definition of what I believe an Alpha Female to be I put:
“An Alpha Female puts herself first so that she can fill up her cup and then have more energy for her friends, family, and coworkers.”
The whole premise is that you can’t pour from an empty cup.
Now that sentence reads:
“An Alpha Female puts herself first because she deserves self-care and love.”
I truly believe that our self-care practices are completely wrapped up in how much we value ourselves. It’s directly tied to our belief system and whether we believe we’re worthy enough to invest that time and actions towards self-care.
And that is why self-care is so intricately linked to our self-love.
Do you believe you are worthy of 1 hour a day (or X amount) towards your self-care?
Do you believe you are worthy of taking time out of your busy schedule for yourself? ESPECIALLY, if you have kids and/or a significant other.
If you answered yes you’re a self-care expert.
If you answered no. Ask yourself WHY NOT?
I’m not here to help you work through worthiness or how you see yourself. I’m simply here to spark a thought. Maybe spark a change 🙂
