Okay, my dude, we are rounding out the month of April talking all about intentionally celebrating and today is a hype girl chat, which is my favorite episode to record. Because these are short, sweet to the point light a fire under your butt get you off the couch to get you moving episodes to leave you feeling inspired, encouraged, motivated to get up and run down the road to your goals. Okay, so today we’re going to be talking about why you need to start being proud of yourself. So a little over a month ago now maybe two months ago now, I made a little graphic that said normalize being proud of yourself. And it seriously went viral. It has like over 4550 shares, and tons of comments. So many people responded to it because you guys, we and when I say we I’m really saying specifically to women, we are born and raised to believe that being proud of ourselves, and being proud of what we’re doing is bad. Like I just I don’t get it. I understand that there is a religious piece of that. I understand that. Some people are raised in certain households where being overly prideful or overly boastful is seen as as sort of condescending or maybe you don’t you’re full of yourself. That’s not what we’re talking about here. When I say being proud of yourself. I mean, going out into the world and saying, This is who I am. This is what I stand for it. This is what I’m doing. And I’m not afraid to share it with other people. Okay, I’m not saying oh, look at me, I’m so hot. I’m so cool. Like, I’m the greatest like I’m the greatest thing since sliced bread, right? That’s not what I’m saying. What I’m saying when I say being proud of yourself is the ability in the the confidence to go out into the world and say, This is me. This is all me. I’m being authentically myself. I love what I do. I stand for what I stand for. And I’m not afraid to share that with other people. And this is what I’m doing in my work and my relationships in my household in my personal self and I’m really stinking proud of the hard work that I’m doing to live the life that I’m leading because those things are not things to be ashamed up. those things are things that you should be proud of. And you should be proud of yourself because life is hard. Life is hard being a human being is a hard thing. Whether you live the easiest life, right like your picture, perfect movie, perfect book, perfect Nicholas Sparks style kind of wife, right? Maybe not Nicholas Sparks, a lot of people always die in his books. Anyway, you live this fabulous life, there’s still going to be parts of your life that are challenging, and that that push you down and that make you feel like you can’t do it. Or on the flip side, maybe you live a really adverse life, maybe you live in a lot of hardship, you live in a bad area of town you struggle to to live a financially stable life, life is still hard. But when we continue to show up, even in those hard moments, we are allowed and deserve to be proud of the good work that we’re putting in. We especially as women, literally I’m like shaking my fist right now, as I say this, especially as women are allowed to be proud of ourselves, we are not being bossy, we’re not being selfish, we’re not being a villain, a bad word right here, I’m not gonna say because I don’t want to have to put the little censored button. In this episode, we’re not any of those things. What we are is people who are putting in the work every single day to live a life that we are excited about, or that we’re proud of, or that we are inspired by, or that bring us joy. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Okay, no matter what the goal is that you are working towards right now, no matter what kind of life you’re working to build currently, all of the things that you’re doing to create that life are things to be proud of, and you are allowed to be proud of those things, you are allowed to be so proud of those things that get you a little bit excited to where you want to share those things with other people, you want to be able to say, I am so proud of the fact that I showed up every single day this week for my students as best as I could, or to be able to say, I’m so proud of the fact that I finally started therapy. And I finally started medication. And I’m starting to feel better because I finally put myself first or to say that I’m proud because I have built a sustainable business that makes six figures a year, right? We are allowed to be prideful. There’s nothing wrong with that, okay. And if you are someone who struggles with being proud of yourself, you need to listen to me right here. Because this is really important. Every single time that you lack the ability to be proud of yourself, or you fail to be proud of yourself, you lower the gravity of what you’re doing, and you make it smaller than it actually is. But what happens when you say whether it’s internal, or you share it with another person, or you post it on social media, or you write an email to your grandma or whoever, and you say, I’m really proud of this, look, what I did you show other people one, that it matters to you into that it has weight to it and it’s worth paying attention to. And anything that you are proud of is worth paying attention to anything that brings you joy, anything that makes you happy, anything that gets you excited, is worth bringing attention to Okay, so please, I am encouraging you. I’m telling you, I’m demanding you right now, to start to be proud of yourself, for the big things that you do. And the small things that you do show other people that you are worth paying attention to. Because you’re putting in the good work, you’re showing up through the hard stuff, you continue to move the needle towards your larger vision for your life, my friend, you are allowed to have that kind of attention. As long as you’re not turning into like guests on from Beauty and the beach. You’re like I’m the greatest thing ever, right? Because once you get there, you’re like, Okay, you need to like Cool your jets. But if you’re doing it in a way that is polite, but also vibrant and excited, that’s okay. Share that proud moment with someone else. Share it with yourself. If sharing it with others is hard for you. Tell yourself every day. I’m proud of you for showing up. I’m proud of you for doing this work. I’m proud of you for making the changes and making the growth that you need to have in order to become the person that you want to be in the future. Because every single time you do that, you give attention to the hard work that you’re putting in and you are worth that attention. And that is everything that I have for you today. Again, HIePRO chats always short, sweet and to the point but I do that intentionally in case you are going to an appointment you’re going into a business meeting or you’re walking from your apartment to the bodega on the corner. I wanted to give you some hype that you can listen to and take throughout your day to light the fire under your butt to go and get after whatever it is on your to do list for today. This week or this month. My friend. I am so proud of you for all of the work that you do. I know I don’t see it every single But I know you’re doing it. I know that we are not talking every single day as if we’re best friends. If you wanted to, you can send me a DM on Instagram. I’m not gonna lie and you can talk to me. But I’m so proud of what you do every single day. I am inspired and motivated by your growth, by your tenacity, by your commitment to yourself to design a life that you love and are obsessed with. I seriously mean that. Okay? So go out there, share that pride with someone else. Tell yourself today that you’re proud of what you’re doing because you deserve to feel that emotion today. Okay, I love you so much. I will see you again next month surprisingly crazy enough in May. And until then I’m sending you all the sunshine good vibes. And I hope you make it a great day.
