Many times we see what we want to see. I see me with all my shit. I see me the one who is not on facebook, instagram, pinterest, or twitter-the me that also has fears, sadness, and doubts. I’m an ordinary wife, mother, sister, daughter, and a friend to many, with the same concerns of others. Thoughts about my future, worries about my children, and of course the crazy world we live in at these challenging times are thoughts, that at times consume me.
For me the key is balance. Taking care of my soul, my physical self and my mental well being are important. Addressing what hurts me, praising what brings me joy, and always willing to admit when I am wrong-these are must-dos in my life.
Being selfish-taking personal time for me, meditation, yoga, nourishing my body with nutrient foods, plenty of sleep and plenty of laughter.
Basically living as authentically as I can…helping others, encouraging, believing in someone else and “playing it forward”. Having an open mind and a “no judgement” attitude have served me well, I know sometimes it can be easy to come to some conclusion about someone, but you really don’t know where that person is coming from, what baggage they are carrying on their shoulders.
Believing in me, having faith that dreams do come true, and working hard on my goals, always knowing that with persistence good things will happen.
And lastly LOVING MYSELF on any given day, including the extra 10 pounds, and the bad hair days…
So my friends, reveal some of those layers and dig deep- you may be surprised at what you may find.
