058 Giving Too Much, Interview with Jaime Drummond
Jaime Drummond shares her life, from her time when she was a constant giver, taking care of others constantly, and not taking care of herself at all. As a result, she became physically ill. Slowly, she decided to trust her loved ones. Taking baby steps, she managed to extract herself from a full time care giver and begin to take care of, and love herself.
What was the one thing that was holding you back from accepting self love? I wanted to be “low maintenance,” which meant “to have no needs.”
Who is one person who has changed your life for the better? My now husband is on the tip top of that list. He has been a beacon of unconditional love and support as I have grown into a person that accepts all that I am.
What is the best advice that you have ever received? When I was thinking of whether or not to take a job, my dad said, “If you don’t like it, you can leave.” He gave me permission to commit to something with the knowledge that I don’t have to do it forever.
What is your favorite self care habit?
Meditations and visualizations recorded in my own voice.
What is your favorite quote?
“It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.” Leonardo DaVinci
What is your favorite app or resource to help with our own self care practice?
An app called "water daily". It helps remind me to drink water.
What book are you reading right now? Abundance Now, by Lisa Nichols
What is the one thing that you are most passionate about? I am most passionate about women living in their own personal values. So many women are “living in the shoulds” and I really love to help women find a place to live without the “shoulds.”
