Weekend Inspiration: Protect Your Peace

    Something I want to share with you on this Saturday, is not everyone deserves your time or your energy. There is a quote that’s floating around Instagram that states something along the lines, “Nothing is worst than wasted time because you can never get that time back.” Whew, well isn’t this a word. Naturally, I am one who loves to give emotional support, encourage, advise and counsel others, who are in need of it. Also, my love language is words of affirmation (I’ll do a post on this later) which embodies some of the previous things I listed. I’m CONSTANTLY pouring into others not only in my career but also in my day to day life and it can be very taxing. Because I am so passionate about helping others, in this arena I sometimes take on assignments (assist or pouring into others that God has not called me to) that are not mine.

    I have to constantly remind myself, not every person that I come across is my assignment and not everyone deserves my energy on that level. The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to protect my peace and that its okay to say no. Additionally, I have learned that I have to make sure that I pour into myself because I cannot pour into others if I’m empty.

    Below are some things to ask yourself and to think about to ensure that you are protecting your peace:

    1. Are you constantly pouring into others?
    2. Do you have toxic people in your life?
    3. Do you feel like you’re running on “E”(empty)?
    4. Do you have healthy boundaries in your various relationships (romantic, familial, friendships, coworkers/boss, etc.)?

    Think about these things and make the necessary changes; whether incorporating “no” more into your dialogues, taking time to recharge (however that may look like), ending conversations that are toxic and distancing yourself from toxic people/situations. I challenge you to protect your peace!

    xoxo,
