I did something wild, unapologetic actually and finally upped my manicuring price after 10 years from $18 to $20 starting May 1st giving myself a long over due pay raise..The truth was, I have been undercharging my worth and the value of the services I provide to my clients out of fear of being rejected and abandoned by asking for what I deserve..I think I forgot that I was my own boss..
My experience throughout my life of asking people who you would figure you could, and found out within their response that you cant or shouldn’t, played a major role in the dysfunctional belief system I had running through my brain..It had prevented me from doing and saying so many things out of fear of being rejected that I believe it was actually a hindrance in my ability to really see myself in all its beautiful divinity..
It happened to take a lot of personal work and healing for me to come to realize my overall worth, regardless of the fact that the cost of everything around us has gone up including all my monthly expenses and supplies..These are the actual side effects of when you do the work to better yourself and the environment around you, letting your light shine bright without needing to dim it for the comfort of others..
These last few years of going to a healer, my husband for acupuncture on a regular basis and using my crystals has set off a tremendous reboot in my entire system of self..I rediscover the lost value factor that was never truly nurtured in my upbringing stemming from the diminished and tarnished experiences of abusive relationships I found myself in..I actually had very little self worth making it readily easy for emotional parasites that are attracted to the light, to feast off my generosity and good nature leaving me feeing anxious, unsure, timid and too drained to care..
I was humbly happy when the majority of my clients responses to the increase was met with words of “ITS AOUT TIME” and “YOU DESERVE IT”..There will always be a few that need to put their twisted jab into a remark as an immediate reactive response, but that speaks more about the level of where they come from and how they need you to feel which isn’t my problem and less about the $2 dollar increase of my service..
Life is a balance, and its our job as individuals to find harmony with the yin and the yang so you can live harmoniously and as authentically as you can..Dont ever settle for something less than what you feel and believe your worth, in a truthful manner with what you bring to the table of life..There will always be those who will try to squash your desire for success and growth, but its your job to see past their delusion and continue to manifest it anyways! peace love faith hope..<3 <3 <3
