Your advocate…

This might be the most important question I can ask you…

“Are you your own advocate?”

You may have heard that you need to be your own advocate when it comes to your health care, and that is so true…

But, I want to take this a step further…

You need to be your own advocate in EVERY area of your life…

  • With health
  • With money
  • With relationships
  • With business
  • With your home or your car
  • With your dreams

Take care of yourself, ask questions, when you instinctually feel that something is important — make sure it happens…

I know that sometimes it is easier to just go along with things even if they don’t feel exactly right, I know that being your own advocate will sometimes cause you to have to push your comfort zone…

But please do it! Right now, commit to being your own advocate in EVERY area of your life…

Trust yourself…

Always hold your best interests in your heart and act from there…

Can you do that?

Leave me a comment and let me know!

Go Big!

    I’ve got to say NO. I am in such a terrible financial mess, along with a unemployment hearing coming up because my last employer does not want to pay me the small amount that Colo. unemployment said they should.

    I do neglect myself and all that pertains to me. Ouch! This sounds really bad.

    Hi Kristen
    I think at times it is easy to get discouraged when you push forward day after day and still see the results less than adequate. Being bombarded with the next best answer to all your problems and now where to turn? Trying to stay focused is at times difficult. We, as I read, all need each other to be successful and staring at the computer it is hard to imagine we really do have a close family of people with the same interests at heart, out there on the internet. I guess I really need to reach out a little more often. Thanks for the great post.

    I just found your blogs and posts earlier this week. It is amazing what asking myself power question #1 has helped me accomplish in only 3 days! I have spent time going back over your previous posts and have made notes of other questions to ask myself. With the tools that you are providing me, I have no doubt I will become a much better advocate for myself.

    Yes, you must feel good about yourself and those good vibs come from the Heart feeling

  6. Kristen, you are right on as usual. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. And by your not doing something (or doing something) you may help others avoid (or get involved with) the same situation. People need to look after themselves before they can hope to effectively help others. For example: Being an advocate of your talents and abilities will aid in your success and that, in turn, will help you to help others; both directly and indirectly.

    Yesterday i had to challenge a Company on a bill that was 243 and now its 120, I had to stand up and go outside my comfort zone because in my heart I knew that I was being charged to much and they could easily explain what all the chardes were about. But in my spirit I knew something was wrong and for a monent because i could afford it i started to just forget it plus my wife called and nothing. But in the end for me it was only a matter of a phone call and I am mighty glad I did make that call, see I decided to stand up for myself. And this goes into all areas of life. I’m married and my wife loves to cook and I love to eat, but I started noticing pants being unable to fit. So i advocated for myself. I eliminated lunch at work, i added fruit to my eating and I have noticed a big difference. However, the point is that my wife hasn’t changed her eating habits and I still eat much with her but I have advocated for myself reguardless. See as humans we can easily blame others for our problems, but then who is responsible? Reguardless if my wife understands that eating right is where it is at, I must make a change for myself, because like I said she is still eating the same, I have realized that I must stand up for myself, and I hope that the reader of this will do the same.

    Hi Kristen,
    I meditate everyday at several intervals and also have one or two long meditations.I gave my dads Neighbour a blessing card the other day and she was delighted.i am also learning to understand that my point of view is not the only point of view that may be correct,i should here others point before my own. peace and light james

    Hi Kristen, yes we all need Advocates in this world and and how can we expect someone else to be our Advocate if we aren’t our own ” Self Advocate”? The mind of man can accomplish whatever it Truly can Conceive and Believe In. We have to Believe in our own self worthiness and as long as we do the right thing for the right reasons and follow our Heart, then we have done our Best, the Rest is up to God and the Universe.

    I trully believe in being your own advocate. How can I love another and help them to overcome and live in the reality of their best if I don’t do it first. Like many who struggle with self esteem no matter how educated I get there is this nagging “I am not good enougth.” However, with every positive step I take I am reaching towards my destiny and I know that everyday I am coming closer to the reason I was created by God of the Universe. It took so long for me to see that even my failures have a gift of showing me that I am on the wrong track. Reaching my higher self is the best gift I or anyone can give to themselves. Thank you for your coaching and encouragement.

  11. Ye I am, BIG TIME!!!


  12. I mean, yes, I most definitely am my own advocate. BIG TIME! Sorry I missed the “s” key on that last yes.

    I love your questions because they hit the mark. Advocating for myself is something I do not do often enough. I do it for others but I neglect myself. Thank you for this valuable reminder. Have a glorious day.

    Hi,i enjoy reading your frank and practical points of life which I take it for granted…and yes, i do sometimes, though i wish io could do it more consistetly.

  15. Linda says:

    Hi Kristen, I do advocate for myself. I must say that I advocate for others more than for myself. Timing is everything; knowing when what to say is more an important then just saying something or anything…..Girl I’m on it…..

    live on purpose,

    Just catching up with old posts. Yes, I am my own advocate, most of the time. It just seems that some of the time I am an advocate for the other side, and begin the process of “beating myself up” all over again.

    Finances are not as good as I would like them to be, and paying one bill seems to make it harder to pay another, and the cycle begins again. I rejoice that I have paid that one bill, and bless those I have not been able to pay, because soon those bills will be the ones paid.

    Hope that makes sense.
