To have or not to have, that is the question ...

Boundaries. A word that is used often enough, but have you ever stopped to consider what your boundaries are or indeed how to go about creating them? Why should you even create them at all?


The implementation of boundaries come as a result of love and respect for your own personal time, energy, skill or worth. They place a protective barrier around you, and you choose what or who crosses the perimeter according to your professional, personal or family needs.


A good place to start when defining your own boundaries is to determine what you value. Your values are your guidelines for life based on what is important to you personally. Along with these values, you will have a set of rules around how you desire these values to be met. An example of a value is success; an example of a value rule is ‘in order for me to feel successful I need to work in a heart driven career’.


Once you have identified your values, you can then create boundaries; rules around what is acceptable or not for you to live according to what is important to you. Your values, or rules around your values, may change over time or require adjustment; however at any given time they will provide you with a tool for quick decision making according to what feels right and important for you in accordance with how you wish to live your life. Indecisiveness can often find us in over our heads, wishing we could back pedal and do things differently.


Boundaries allow you to check in with yourself to make sure you are living according to your own needs. And that does not make you wrong, it only makes you, you.

On a personal note I'd like to add : 

On top of that I would say : NEVER EVER have boundaries to what YOU can do and accomplish ! You can do anything you set your mind to !!

Feel Empowered !
