Time for rest!Vera Pavlova, Russian Artist
We are all wonderful women. We all have human emotions, needs, desires that sometimes overwhelm us, our breath catches in our throat, our mind freezes, and we seem stuck in that one time that connects us with an overwhelming obsession. We can forget healthy attitudes, forget common sense, and just single mindlessly go forth and sabotage our soul.
We do this for many reasons, the effects of child hood dysfunction, adult issues, illness, sadness. We forget our center, forget our spirits purpose., make that call we knew we should not, say those words, eat that food, have that next drink.
And then, we possibly live with regret, self recrimination, and not move forward, we can spend time doing a wallow dance of pain, even make that wallow our comfortable place to live.
So, how can we change this process, this perpetuating cycle of self-abuse? Can we take small steps? Teach ourselves what is important?
So if we look at our lives…what cycle are we in, (if any) that hurts our soul? Lets look at this, and decide what pain we can let go of, and where we can grow.
Lets use our worries as growth, as lessons, and learn to nurture the world we contain within ourselves?
Today consider writing yourself a letter, claim your happiness, state your hopes, be honest, be wild, be free. Expect, and demand approval, tell that naysayer on your shoulder to take a break!
What are your goals? your needs. your desires? Name them! then…carefully fold your letter, and put it away, maybe in a scented dresser drawer, or between the pages of your favorite book.
