You're a hell of a go-getter (and let's be honest, a little intense) but that's what makes you a total blast to be around. You live for the excitement of new things. There's something enchanting about doing something you've never done before. Heck, doing something most people have never done before. You get a rush every time you push yourself to your limits. No challenge is too big for you. You're happiest when you feel like you're experiencing life to its fullest.
Danger: It can be hard to enjoy the present moment. You're so busy chasing after the next big thing that you risk missing out on the magic that's right in front of you. Maybe it's the way the sun hits the leaves on a crisp autumn day or how your partner kisses you goodnight on the tip of your nose or the warmth of your morning coffee. As fun as the big moments are, it's the little ones that truly matter.Self-Love Tip: Go for a walk today sans distractions. No phone. No music. No agenda. Practice observing the world around you. Use your five senses. What do you see? What do you smell? What do you hear? What can you touch? What tastes are present in your mouth? This is the time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
You are the sweetheart of the bunch! You've got a heart of gold and are happiest when everyone around you is happy. Reading a good book, toes in the sand, the sound of waves crashing beside you, the sun kissing your skin, is your ideal kind of day. You're a pretty chill person and people seem to immediately relax when they're in your presence. You give out smiles freely and aren't afraid to let your inner child run free.
Danger: Because it's so easy for you to be yourself, people can get jealous and may make fun of you or try to tear you down. Don't let the haters get you down! You are a radiant being and showing people how to embrace their full, amazing, silly, brilliant selves is a gift to us all! You do you, boo. We don't change the world by rescuing people; we change it by leading by example.
Self-Love Tip: Setting boundaries is key for you. Write a list of every expectation and obligation that’s been imposed upon you and burn it (or tear it up, throw salt on it, etc.). You can say a little intention before doing so, offer some gratitude for your younger self and how these things might have kept you safe in the past but are no longer serving you, and ask for support as you make space for the person you are growing into. Here are some prompts to consider:
I give myself permission to:
I release the belief that:
I let go of the need to be:
I am no longer the person who:
You're the Type A friend everyone prays for because you make shit happen. You're amazing at researching the hot spots, getting recommendations from the locals, and coordinating a zillion little details to plan the most epic trip. You're exploring from dawn until dusk, making sure not to miss a single thing. Learning new things is your jam and nothing makes you happier than sharing the wisdom you've collected with others.
Danger: Your desire to get the most out of every situation can get a little obsessive. If you're not careful, your perfectionism may bubble up and get in the way of having a good time. Even with all of your meticulous planning, some things just won't go the way you want. As disappointing as that may be, you don't want it to completely ruin your day! It's important to learn how to let go and enjoy the magic of spontaneity.
Self-Love Tip: When we're in our heads so much, we tend to forget to pay attention to our bodies! Anxiety and stress are both forms of energy so moving your body is a great way to release some of that energy and regulate your nervous system. Today, put on one of your favorite tunes and have a quick dance party with yourself. Don’t be shy. No one’s watching. Give yourself the gift of play!
You are a master at roughing it out in the wild and at this point, can pretty much sleep wherever you go. You love the peace and quiet of being out in nature. You don't really care if you can't shower for four days, aren't that into makeup, and are secretly contemplating when you can live off the grid in your cute cabin in the woods. F*ck the treadmill, amirite? People are envious of how comfortable you are in your own skin. Without realizing it, you inspire people just by being you!
Danger: Sometimes you're so committed to a challenge that you put yourself in unnecessarily stressful situations. Struggle for the sake of struggling. There's no harm in pampering yourself every now and again! It may seem counterintuitive but learning how to rest and play and enjoy our lives is the ultimate act of rebellion against the patriarchy, the path to true liberation. You have nothing to prove, sweet one!
Self-Love Tip: Take a long, luxurious bath tonight. It might seem totally stupid and a waste of time but trust me, you deserve the TLC. Add some Epsom salt. Light a candle. Put on your favorite acoustic playlist. Indulge in how yummy it feels to take care of yourself with such kindness.
You're so fun to travel with because you always bring a suitcase full of magical things: your tarot deck, essential oils, flower essences, crystals, tea...you know, the essentials. You love a good acai bowl and will definitely be finding the nearest green juice spot wherever you go. Most of your conversations revolve around the big questions - Who am I? What's my purpose? Where do I belong? - and the less small talk you have to do, the better. People tend to flock to you and spill all of their secrets because there's just something about your energy that makes people feel right at home.
Danger: You're still learning to trust your intuition so watch out for going along with something even though it feels out of alignment. People love being around you because you're so nice but that doesn't mean you have to love being around them. Your energy is precious and you can spend it however you damn well please! Try not to worry so much about disappointing others and start putting yourself first. Your needs matter, too!
Self-Love Tip: Today, create a "Stop Doing List." Write out all of the things on your plate that you either don't have time for or dislike. Get super clear about how you are spending your time and use this as an opportunity to plug some energy leaks. It's time to take a hard look at what you might be doing for others out of obligation instead of devoting your energy to the things you really care about.
