Episode 61: Love is an Inside Job
Show notes: My guest today is Tanya Thomas. She is an entrepreneur coach and has been coaching for thirty years. In addition to being my guest, Tanya is also my neighbor and friend. She is a beacon of shining light. Positivity is her last name:)
Think about what you are conditioned to believe as a young girl. A white knight in shining armor will sweep you up into his arms and you will live happily ever after. This conditioning is an external focus on something that is a fallacy. Instead of focusing on the external, focus on the internal by loving yourself first. How do you do that?
Me, myself and I. Yes, you read that correctly. If you take care of you, there are no complaints. You’re not late for dinner, you can wear what you want, eat and drink what you want without any judgment! When was the last time you did something just for you? You’re always more concerned about making someone else happy that you forget about yourself!
I have been asked by others if eating dinner alone in a restaurant or seeing a movie by myself is weird. It is not! It’s actually very freeing. My sweetheart was out of town one weekend for a rug show. Did I sit in a corner and cry? No. I went out to dinner and saw a movie that made me laugh my butt off. Have you had a pamper yourself day? Go get a mani and pedi. Get a facial or a massage. Take care of you.
