Hirsch’s Struben’s Valley recently had the pleasure of having Jaci Tibbit as a guest speaker at the Margaret Hirsch WIB Network event. Jaci holds many titles as a beauty queen and business woman. .
Said Jaci, “Just like roses are often the heart and soul of a garden and symbolic of love and beauty, women are the heart and soul of many homes, businesses, workplaces, schools and charities. Mother Theresa said, ‘It is not how much you do, but how much love you put in the doing’. And this is usually how we as women do things, by adding a little tender love and care to whatever we do”
Jaci continued by saying that :”Roses aren’t nearly as fragile as they might appear, but they DO need special care – as do we – even when we consider ourselves strong and able to take on the world.”
Jaci Tibbit stressed the importance of “a little ME TIME”, she added:
- Moments by yourself give you time to RECHARGE. Yes, our batteries do run flat even if we don’t like to admit it. And a little time to yourself can help to recharge your ability to effectively handle the demands or your life and job.
- Our jobs may require us to constantly interact with other people, sometimes challenging ones I’m sure, therefore your ability to SELF-REGULATE is so important. Me time can help you ‘top up’ this ability to self-regulate – because it takes you away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, even if just for a short time every day.
- You need to spend time with your OWN THOUGHTS and emotions so that you can deal with your own anxieties – whether you decide to do something about them or to live with them. If you leave these to bottle up it could have a major effect on how you handle daily life.
- You need time to just SWITCH OFF . Give yourself permission to do this! Whether you paint or play an instrument or bake – this ‘being alone’ opportunity is to engage in self-reflection. Do something for yourself – go for a manicure, watch a movie on your own, or just lie on the couch”
“By reminding us to dedicate a little time to ourselves, by spending time alone to recharge and become focused again. By believing in ourselves and our ability to achieve and overcome our fears and not allowing others to put us down we need to realise that we are the only ones walking in our shoes, we are the only ones wearing them, so therefore we need to wear them wel”, commented Dorette Nel, PRO Hirschs Strubens Valley
