Life has a way of challenging you to stand up for yourself each and every day in some obvious and not so obvious ways. You may have that co-worker who knows exactly what buttons to push to tip you over. You may have that friend who is always asking you for favors and you find yourself bending over backwards to get it all done. You may go to bed wondering if it’s worth it to go into work the next morning when you’re already tired unmotivated. Where do you draw the line? Where do you stand up for yourself?
The combination of Smokey Quartz and Amethyst is here to help you clear away any of the mental fog that may be keeping you from recognizing the brilliant, beautiful being you are. There is no need to stand in the shadows allowing others to take away from your time, effort, and energy without your permission. Remember how a few weeks ago, this year is all about Light? It’s coming up again today because being true to your own light is so important now. However, it does take practice getting used to standing up for yourself.
It takes constantly checking in to see if a new thought or action resonates with you or not. Can you recognize your co-worker’s tactics at distraction and make the choice to just let it go? Can you stand up to your friend and let her know that your time is precious to you and you have your own things to attend to first? Can you continue to work for a place that doesn’t bring you joy or inspiration?
Don’t go through your life in one mental fog and daze of routine. As comfortable as it is, realize that you may not be moving forward to your dreams as quickly as you could. Because frankly, who will stand up for you and your vision if not you?
