It only just occurred to me why I sign off this newsletter and marketing pieces with:
I love you,
You’re the Job
Even though it is a courtesy to you, and I really do mean it (that I love you), every time I sign off it’s a reminder to me.
It is a reminder to me to love myself, that I’m the job, that I’m a masterwork creating a masterpiece, that I’m extraordinary, that I’m worthy and that I’m lovable.
I’ve started listening to how I speak to myself as a conscious exercise in mindfulness.
F%3k me … if I spoke to anyone else how I spoke to myself (with disdain, loathing, frustration and doubt), I’d have no friends.
If I cannot even treat myself with the respect and love I deserve, how am I going to treat my friends and my clients?
So, I’m stopping this nonsense and I’m going to speak to myself like I’d speak to my creator … with love, respect, awe and gratitude.
I hope you’ll join me on this quest.
You’re the job, I love you!
