IT’S WISDOM WEDNESDAY AND I URGE YOU TO… SHOW UP!!
even when you don’t feel like you have it in you. even when you want to stay in bed. even when you’re ready to throw in the towel. even when you’re in a funk. even when you don’t know how you feel. even when there is a lot of sh*t to get done.
As I sit here reflecting, the lesson that comes up so often (especially with the way we are conditioned to constantly be doing something), is to just be.
🌿 We don’t always have to move. We don’t always have to do something. We must learn to just be. By being okay with stillness, we open ourselves to rest, to reflect, to regenerate, to new things, new blessings and doors. 🌿 Be comfortable with just being a still version of yourself.
How many times have we focused solely on the things that we haven’t done “right” rather than the things we have done well? Why are we not quick to give ourselves credit? Credit for learning something new. Credit for jumping back on the proverbial horse after falling off. Credit for having the courage to do something when we were scared out of our minds. Credit for having the courage for facing the day when we feel like we want to stay in the bed forever. Credit for achieving our goals of eating better, going to bed at a decent time, moving more, reading more, writing in our journal, loving our body, loving ourselves, loving others…the list goes on! Celebrate yourselves, Warrior!
We must honor the Most High, the Universe and ourselves by allowing ourselves to connect and disconnect. We connect by grounding ourselves and being centered. We connect by opening our mind and heart to the Most High. We connect by aligning ourselves with the Universe. We connect by being one with ourselves. We connect by being an empty vessel waiting to be filled.
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 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.
