Welcome to Authentic Living Coaching, The Podcast,
I’m your hostess, Linda Codlin
I am a certified life coach, and the founder of Authentic Living Coaching.

It is my intention that each and every one of us has the
information we need to make the best decisions about the way
we choose to live our lives.
Living life on your terms, and being your authentic self.
Hello, My Friends
Welcome to episode 13, The Greatest Commitment You can make is to yourself. Today I want to carry on talking about commitment.
I think committing to ourselves is so very important.
Most of us as woman, tend to put others needs first.
We think that by tending to others first we are somehow being more.
More loving, more caring, more friendly, more worthy, and more important.
The thing is we are often being more to everyone else and less to ourselves.
Are you being more to your family and less to yourself?
Do you feel frustrated that your needs don’t get met?
Maybe you are so used to not having your needs met, that you no longer even register that you have needs.
You walk through your day mildly annoyed, but don’t know what the annoyance is.
You have a hair-trigger temper, and you don’t know where it came from, you didn’t always snap so easily.
You feel slighted by people’s comments when they never bothered you before.
You strive to keep the peace, saying yes when you want to say no, or saying no when you really want to say yes. Not wanting to create a problem, a scene or be a nuiance.
These could all be caused by a lack of commitment to yourself.
When we learn to commit to ourselves, to be truthful with ourselves about what we really need, and then begin to fill those needs in ways that nourish and nurture our soul and spirit we find that our inner peace returns.
Our inner peace is like a safe haven within ourselves, it is the place where our cherished dreams live. The ones we never tell anyone, not even ourselves.
Our inner peace gives us strength and courage to be authentic, to love, to serve, to laugh and have fun from a wholistic place.
The more you love yourself the more you can love others.
The more you take care of yourself the better you can take care of others.
When your emotional ‘cup’ is full, the people in your life get to live in the overflow of that fullness.
You feel happier, You feel satisfied with yourself.
Making a commitment to yourself, to begin to take care of your soul, spirit gives you the power to find out what you really want.
Making a commitment to yourself will not be easy.
You will have past evidence that you have not been important to yourself. And habits take time and effort to restructure.
You can not change a habit by willing the old habit to change, you change a habit by overwriting and creating a new habit in it’s stead.
So instead of focusing on what you don’t want, you focus on what you do want.
Don’t want to over eat, practice eating until you feel elegantly satisfied, then stop eating. Remember new habits take practice and time.
You won’t get it right all the time, in fact to expect that you will get it right is to set yourself up for failure. (Failure is where you quit on yourself, verses failing, where you are working out what does and what doesn’t work for you.) A one degree shift applied consistently will have you in a totally different space over time and as you will generate new evidence of the new habit you are wanting, you gain confidence in yourself.
Commit to yourself, you are your most important asset.
If you are not important to yourself, how can you live a fulfilled and happy life.
Today’s challenge is to choose one activity you want to make a new habit in your life. Make a commitment to yourself, that this new action is non-negotiable, that you will do it no matter what.
It could be that you walk 5 mins every day. That you get your nails done once a month. That you have a bubble bath once a week.
Whatever it is that you need to recharge your soul and spirit, make it a priority for you. Start small, give yourself the satisfaction of succeeding.
Make a commitment to yourself, to be the woman you know you are.
Have a fabulous day my friends. Until next time…
Live your best life, one recharging action at a time, live into your authenticity.
