Step 4: Follow Your Heart

This corny statement definitely applies Dragonflies.

When taking the time for yourself to do the things that make you happy, make it count.

Make sure to use that time for the things that make you, individual you, happy. Expand your personal talents, the ones that bring you joy and give you a sense of destiny. If you are still trying to figure out your talent, well… then follow your heart.  

Certain things make you who you are. Your heart tells you when you’re in need of doing these certain things. Listen.


 Step 5: Mindfulness

The most important step in making a change. Being mindful of yourself and noticing when your words, actions, and habits are fueling this negativity.

I’ve already stopped mid-convo with a friend to notice how my words were reflecting poorly of myself. I apologized and changed up how I was verbalizing my point. Doing this more and more frequently will help you separate the problem from yourself, taking note that it is not a part of you, and being able to then get rid of it for good.

Once you see the problem as a bad habit and less of a personality flaw, the easier it will be to rid yourself of it completely.


Step 6: Baby Steps

You can try to make this change cold-turkey, which would be absolutely incredible. However, the most efficient way to hold yourself accountable through this process is by mapping out some baby steps for yourself.

Make a weekly calendar for yourself. Include activities to do for yourself on certain days. Add more as the weeks increase, eventually taking at least 10-30 minutes a day to do something for yourself.

{ Note that the activities could be sitting and staring at a wall if that’s what you feel you need more of, not every activity needs to be expanding your talent(s)}

The goal is ...well...you get it.
