June is an artist, writer, speaker and advocate for self-empowerment. In 1999, illness overcame her life. During her unwavering search for physical wellness, she stumbled upon the subject of emotional wellness. This discovery led her down a path of self-empowerment for which she will always be grateful. It opened the doorway to her heart. As a result, she has spent a great deal of the past fourteen years focusing on personal growth and self-help. June’s mission is to share what she has learned with other people to support them on their wondrous and sometimes rocky journey. She conducts workshops, writes and paints to share her passion and wisdom with her fellow advocates for self-empowerment.

We are soooo hard on ourselves...

I bet you know exactly what I am referring to...sad, but true. Somewhere along the line we just start beating on ourselves. What were we thinking when we began this destructive habit?

Did you ever find it beneficial to beat on someone? Did they become a better person because you judged them and called them out on what you perceived as their weaknesses? Ironically this is what we do to ourselves and sometimes worse. It does little to help us and it certainly does not empower us.

Pay attention to your self-judgment. Take note of the destruction it causes. Start building yourself up instead.

This weekend make a list of the traits that you value about yourself. List what makes you special and unique. Change your focus to being good to yourself. Believe me it will be a welcomed state!
