Hello I’m Lisa Bent and welcome to the PH ZONE. In last month’s podcast, I expressed the importance of following your Blueprint, which is your own path. I acknowledge this takes time and where do you even begin in knowing what your blue print is? The Yellow World by Albert Espinosa is a book I started reading this week. It jumped out at me amongst the many other books in the bookshop due to its title. I read the first page and was sold; it’s this first page that I want to share with you.
Hello I’m Lisa Bent and welcome to the PH ZONE. This month has been a strange month for me. Strange in the sense that I have felt, and still feel stuck and un motivated. This happens from time to time and people have different ways of moving through it.
International Women’s Day is on the 8 March every year: It is a day that celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. At this time many events happen across the world and I wanted to use this opportunity to reach out to all the young girls and women who believe they have to change who they are to be like somebody else. This is not true. You are perfect just as you are. However you have to believe it and see it for yourself. Knowing who you are is a journey; be kind to yourself, have patience and listen to yourself by developing your self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-love. These are the 3 core conditions of Self-Central.
I personally haven’t written a diary since I was in secondary school, but there are benefits to this process also. No matter what you choose to call it, or how regular you choose to do it, processing your thoughts is extremely beneficial as it allows whatever is in, to flow out.
Being the CEO of your life means that you are being and living the best possible you. This doesn’t happen over night. First you have to look at where you currently are, where you want to be and then create goals to make it happen. I recently wrote a blog called “Grain of sand living” as I felt stuck and bored. I find these feelings usually pop up when I am due for a change. If this is how you feel it may be your mind, body and soul trying to push you to do more or something different. Listen and take note of what is happening.
The question I would like to ask for those currently searching for love is… what are you looking for? When we search for something in this context it is because we have a need that we want to be filled. Take some time out and think about what that need is and then ask yourself whether you can fill this void yourself. I raise this as I have heard many people say “Having a boyfriend would make me feel confident/happy/loved” My answer to that is no one can give you what you cannot give to yourself.
Listen to Lisa Bent on this month’s Self-Central pH Zone. She asks you the question inspired by Ken Barnes blogpost – Is it better to…
Nobody is perfect and so striving to be this is an un-realistic goal which you will never reach.
