Want More Self- Love? Use Your Calendar This Way

“Until you value yourself, you won't value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. ”
– M. Scott Peck

We all struggle with valuing ourselves and infusing self-love when we most needed. It’s not because we are bad people, it’s more because we are human beings that over rationalize everything we see. It’s also because we tend to self-doubt ourselves and allow others views and opinions to penetrate our psyche.

In this episode, I discuss a simple calendar strategy that you can use to infuse more self-love into your life. I also provide you with the questions to ask to truly make this strategy work for you. Listen in!

And after listening to this episode, you want to see a visual guide on how to audit your calendar, click below on the video.

The Power of Being

Questions to Ask to Start Celebrating Yourself

I am a strong believer in self-help. I do it all the time and have guided myself throughout my journey with the understanding of helping or “fixing” myself to “become a better person.”

However, as time has passed by and I’ve gotten wiser, I’ve realized that I don’t have to fix myself to “become a better person.” In reality what I have to do is quite the opposite - to start accepting myself (some call it embracing your authenticity- although there are many description of what authenticity truly means- more on that in another episode).

But by accepting myself - my foundation of who I am (with my flaws, my mistakes, my quirks, etc), of who Gd made me to be, I am unlocking my power and truly starting to become a better version of me (instead of what I think should be me).

You see, when we are on a “fixing” journey, we do it with the intention of changing ourselves and what we think should be our true self. Mind you we do this through someone else’s journey and many external input, which most of the time may not be the best for us.

In this episode I am discussing the power of being my (your) raw self. I also provide the questions to ask to truly start celebrating yourself vs. fixing yourself.

I hope you enjoy it!!!

And after listening to this episode, don’t forget to let us know what you think or any questions you may have.

Keep going-2.png

I had the pleasure of interviewing my son, Adrian. He is 12 years old and is wise beyond his years. With his help and guidance we dive into the questions to ask any pre-teen in order to make them feel heard and empowered.

It was a fun interview and not only did he provide questions, but he also provides ways to truly listen and connect with your pre-teen (because as we all know it is not easy at times).

Listen in and enjoy every minute of it!

And as always here is the one sheet on the questions that you should ask your pre-teen.

Dorkys Ramos - The Questions to Ask To Persevere & Refocus

DORKYS RAMOS THUMBNAIL.001.jpeg

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dorkys Ramos, an illustrator, editor and CEO of Porcupine Hugs, for InspirationaLatinos podcast. Her story is one which everyone should hear and because of this I excerpted some of the interview for you all to hear in Questions to Ask podcast.

Two weeks before being diagnosed with breast cancer, she launched Porcupine Hugs, a stationery company, with the full purpose of making people smile. Unbeknownst to her, not only was she destined to make people smile, but she is teaching them to live their lives to the fullest and not to let anything determine their destiny.

What drives her? Her M.O. of seeing the light in everything. Thanks to it, she has been able to live with breast cancer for the past 6+ years and not let it define her. She has gone through ups and downs, but through it all, she has persevere and always managed to refocus on her endeavors and passions. She keeps going.

In this interview she helps us learn the questions to ask when we are faced with adversity and how we should move forward in refocusing our life one step at a time.

She is truly an inspiration to us all.

And if you are curious to know what are the questions, here is a pdf to take with you (or click below for it).

Questions to Ask Before Shopping

In Questions to Ask Podcast, Episode 2, we explore the questions to ask before you buy any item. We know that we live a very consumeristic lifestyle and debt is a big problem in this country. 

We also know that when we go out shopping, we to blow our budget and buy things that are absolutely not necessary. And why do we do that? Simple, we are not truly honest with ourselves about why we are buying the item, and we don't know what is truly a want or a need. We just buy, buy, buy

To help you navigate this and get you tons of money back into your pocket, we've focused on the top 9 questions to ask before you embark on your next purchase journey. 

And as I promised in the episode, here is your wallet question ID that you should print out and make sure you keep in your wallet (preferably in front of your favorite credit card/ debit card). Before you purchase anything, read these questions.

Questions to Ask Before You Turn 40

In this first episode of Questions to Ask Podcast, I dive into the questions that everyone should ask before they turn 40 years old. Of course, these questions can truly be asked at any stage of your life when you feel stuck or not authentically you. But because I turned 39 years old this year, and 40 is right around the corner - literally- I felt I needed some self-reflecting time on where I am at and where should I be going.

I think you can benefit from this as well. 

As promised in the podcast, I created a one sheet with the questions I went over in this episode. Please click on the picture below. 

To know thyself, is the best gift you can give thyself....

 

And grab a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or a beer, kick back and start answering.  

If in any event you feel stuck or need to speak to someone regarding these questions, please feel free to email me at clara.jamison1@gmail.com. I'll be more than happy to help you with going through them and answering them. 

And don't forget, if there are any other questions you can think of that someone should be asking themselves before he/she turns 40, please shoot them to us. We'll pick our favorite ones and include them in another session of the podcast.   

We always love to hear from our friends. 

Enjoy!!

XO,
