"How to Stop Being a People Pleaser and Start Prioritizing Yourself"

Are you a people pleaser and a super woman cape-wearer?


Do you find yourself saying yes when you really want to say…oh hell no!


As women we are nurturers. Which is a good thing, but it can also lead to taking care of everyone but us. Putting ourselves on the back burner and people pleasing behaviors can put us into a spin which lead to burnout and bad decisions!



Here are a few ideas to help you go from what I call “Spinning to Twirling”….


✅ Drop the "Super" cape! Prioritize and delegate: Create a to-do list each morning. Draw a line down the center of the page. On one side of the paper write down everything you feel you must do. On the other side of the page write down what you really do not HAVE to do. This creates clarity. Often times, we feel we HAVE to do a lot more than we actually do. Next, delegate people to help you with the projects that you do need to get done so you’re not taking on the world alone. We put so much pressure on ourselves when it’s okay to let go and ask for help.


✅ Say NO. This is a biggie for me! I am a nurturer and a caretaker who doesn't like to let people down. Yet, I've learned to say no. Or else... When we put ourselves on the back burner it leads to what? Exhaustion, resentment, and burnout which ultimately leads to…bitchiness! Saying no is a gift we give ourselves and others. No one wants to be around you if you're cranky and pooped...and if you try to cover it up people still feel it in your energy.


Remember, self-care is not a selfish act but rather a necessary investment in your well-being. By prioritizing self-care and managing stress effectively, you can reduce the risk of burnout and maintain a healthier, more balanced life.


When you find yourself spinning.... turn that spin into a twirl. Slow down and twirl to the melody of your soul then stop and sit in that space and .... Breathe. Let go.


Follow your heart because you my dear, are a beautiful creative creature and capable of everything you desire. It's okay to say no.


I am here for you, I love you
