Your North Star is Your Health & Well-Being
What is your guiding light? For most of the women I know, kids, partner, family, work, career, and community define our priorities. This makes sense, since we are biologically hard-wired and culturally conditioned to serve the welfare of others before ourselves.
If most women in the world weren’t taking care of the needs of others, it is hard to imagine how the world would turn.
But, just because this is our default and has been going on for thousands of years, doesn’t mean it’s right or it’s working for anyone.
Are you burnt out, gaining weight, mentally disgruntled, physically deteriorating, or just plain out of sorts? If so, the status quo is not working! And if it is not working for you, it is not working for anyone.

First of all, how are we supposed to take care of others if we are so run down we don’t have the energy to take care of ourselves, let alone remember where we parked the car?
Second of all, here we are in the prime of our lives – smarter, wiser, and filled with a passion and purpose we didn’t have access to when we were younger (and stupider.) The wind is at our backs, but our foggy minds and flabby bat wings are not strong enough to catch it.
Let’s be honest, there are probably at least 6 things on your “most important things in my life” list that come before your own health, vitality, and well-being.
What should be at the top?
Your health, your vitality, and your well-being. This is what makes it possible to manifest your purpose here on earth, whether it is taking care of others, building a career, creating your own life path, or all of the above.
You, energized, vital, and free to fly, is what makes the world turn. In the long run, sacrificing yourself for the sake of others, robs us all of your light and energy.
Make your health and vitality your north star, have it be the light that guides you, so you can fully live the life you are here for.
