Always remember how much you matter!  Take care of yourself as you would someone you love very much.  For some reason we are very good at giving others great advice or even taking such great care of others, but neglect ourselves.  It’s so important for you to let your self know that you care about you, that you matter to you and that you are going to take care of you.

You know it’s time TO HONOR YOURSELF and let go when:

what used to make you feel happy now makes you feel sad.

what used to make you feel good now makes you feel bad.

what used to make you feel excited now makes you feel dread.

what used to make you feel satisfied now makes you feel drained.


Don’t be afraid of new beginnings.

Don’t be afraid of the unknown.

Don’t be afraid of failing, because you won’t, believe in you!

If you’re not happy where you are now then it’s time to honor yourself and let go of what no longer serves you!  You CAN do it, you will succeed and be fine and probably way happier than you are now!  You’ve waited long enough, the time is now!

If you hate to go to bed at night because it means the next morning will come and you will have to face another undesirable day then it’s time for letting go!  Rid yourself of whatever it is that is causing you such pain and distress.  You don’t deserve it, you would tell others the same if they were in your position, so listen, take care of yourself, do what is necessary to be happy again.  Life is too short and God did not intend for us to live an unhappy life.

Honor yourself.  How?  By listening to you and if something is making you unhappy, change it.  Comfort yourself, care about how you are feeling and let yourself know that you matter, you are going to change the situation and that you will once again be joyous and look forward to each morning and night!

My friend, it’s time for letting go!

It’s time to Honor Yourself!!

  5. Deb, someone needs to hear this message. Well, I guess it was me…lol. I don’t carve out enough time for myself. Guilty as charged! When I feel drained, I get a little mad at myself, but I tell ya, there’s nothing like a good massage or a trip to the salon to lift my spirits. 🙂 Great post! ❤
