We know that your life is from one achievement after another, Erzulliesta. You just can't help it. You have dreams and aspirations and you love to work towards them. But as you go on and do your fierce thing, a little moment to reflect on your life every now and then can be a great cup of tea for the tired spirit. Are you ready? Here are 5 important life questions every Erzulliesta should ask:
#1 Who are these dreams for?
As I have said before, Erzulliestas love to create a life that pleases them. In that life, we know that you ladies have dreams and goals that you want to achieve through your impressive skills. With that in mind, you just have to ask (just to be sure) are you doing this for yourself or for what people would think about you when you actually have it?
Feel free to explore.
#2 What are your values?
Values are things that are important to you. These are ideas and feelings that you always want to be present in your life. May it be family, money, career or relationships --- you should know your own set. For ultimately, at the end of the day, what makes you feel "authentically" you, is when you can actually answer anyone with an honest face that you have honored them and molded your life in accordance to those aspects that are important to you.
So ask yourself --- what are your values?
#3 Have you honored your values?
At times, we can't help but to compromise to achieve one goal. But then again, you just have to ask --- is that goal really worth that value you are letting go? \
And if you have honored your values, what are the ways that you did? Writing down the times that you honored your values will empower you in the future when you are feeling down. You can go back to those moments that you have defended them and actually won. And if you did it once, you can do it again.
#4 Have I done a self-love ritual this week?
Don't freak out. A ritual does not necessarily involve anything out of the ordinary. A ritual is something that you just do all the time to feel or get something.
Example. I love going to cafe's once a day to re-charge my creativity or center myself from the hustle and bustle of my job. It helps me "end my day" and make sure that I don't go back to work. This helps me relax.
So what's yours and have you done it this week already?
#5 Did I honor myself this week?
Yes. As an Erzulliesta, you can take care of almost anything. And with that, you have to make sure that you also take care of yourself. Did you honor yourself this week?
Have you thrown a compliment to yourself as you passed by the mirror? Did you sleep when you were absolutely tired? Did you say no when someone was forcing you to do something that you know you can't do? Did you give in to one treat that makes you feel good about yourself?
If not, this is the perfect time to dedicate a moment in honoring your beautiful self, Erzulliesta. You deserve it!
