While it is very much ingrained in our culture to always be go, go, go, it is imperative for us to slow down. We must allow ourselves the space to heal, to reset, to replenish, and to live without the demands of everyday life. Continue reading
// Slow Down Sunday //
We must listen to our body + spirit when it is giving us signs to slow down. It is not possible to do EVERYTHING at once. Many activities that we are committed to (family, work, housekeeping, errands, volunteering, learning, etc.) requires quite a bit of energy. And lending that energy to all of those different areas quickly runs down the energy supply. How does one remedy that? They slow down. They step away from some things to provide the space to focus on certain things and heal. Maybe the space means reducing where your energy goes and focusing on a smaller amount of things. Maybe it means just focusing on yourself and family. Maybe it means just focusing on yourself. Whatever the answer may be, it can be found within. Don’t ignore it. Don’t allow yourself to deplete your energy resources without replenishing it. Don’t ignore yourself, Warrior.
Goals, Timelines and Journeys are things that apply and interconnect in our lives. It is not uncommon to have goals with timelines associated with them. In fact, we are often conditioned to have time frames for every thing that we do. While that is fine, we must not allow the timelines to be finite. We must leave room for adjustments. We must allow ourselves to factor in other things in our lives. We must allow ourselves the ability to change as we see fit. We must also adjust to the change that is presented to us as we go along our respective journeys. We must be open, Warrior.
Happy Wisdom Wednesday!
Happy day, Warriors! It is very easy for us to fall into a zone of comfort without working to do something outside of what we’re used to. We must grow, stretch, challenge ourselves and become better. Dedicate yourself to allowing yourself the opportunity to take risks and grow.
It’s Wisdom Wednesday! This message that I share with you all is something that I have learned and continue to learn. As Warriors, we must be gentle with ourselves. We must be nurturing, loving, patient, kind, and forgiving. This is imperative for our growth as well as healing.
I hope that this resonates with you and fellow Warriors. Thank you for listening!
This Wisdom Wednesday message will be short and sweet. Soon, a longer post or video will follow.
You are a top priority. You just take care of yourself. There is only one you.
Put yourself above all deadlines, all asks of you, all “obligations”, all responsibilities, all chores…everything.
You must come before any and everything. That very well may sound selfish but if you don’t care for yourself, you will soon find yourself sacrificing bits and pieces of you until there is nothing left.
Happy Wisdom Wednesday, Warriors!! Never dim your light. No matter the person you’re interacting with or the situation. Shine bright, always.
This week’s Wisdom Wednesday is in about The Power of Mindset!! We have the power to control our internal message and thought process. We must simply be aware of our thoughts and energy.
Ah, it’s Friday for many of us in the Northern Hemisphere and it seems that this week was full of lessons (as always).
I chose to step away and allow myself the space to center myself; to focus on closing out things that were due to be complete; to fuel myself with intentions; and to appreciate life. Oftentimes, we are caught up in what needs to be done, what we want to do and just the day-to-day. While all of these things brings beautiful gifts, we need to recognize the need to give ourselves space.
