I’m about to get really vulnerable. Life wasn’t always this good.
I’ve been through my share of trials, as we all have. I hit my lowest low a few years ago. I would cry and just not understand WHY. I would worry about everything. I would just not get it.
I knew I had anxiety, but it was crippling me to my core.
I so get it.
I know how hard life can seem. It can seem like you’re all alone with nowhere to go.
I had enough of feeling like this. So, I decided to GET REAL with myself.
I had been in counseling for quite some time, but wanted to really take is S E R I O U S L Y. So, I did.
I started setting myself up for SUCESS.
I started making friendships that are REAL.
There wasn’t an AHA! moment for me. More like little YAY! moments.
Those exciting moments started to compound. I started listening to my body.
I started learning E X A C T L Y what my body and soul needed. I started taking queues from my body and soul.
I realized I needed my alone time to rejuvenate.
I DECLARED my ME time. Not because I don’t love those around me, but because I learned to love myself.
I would learn what techniques I benefit from the most. Whether that’s aromatherapy, deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, music, yoga… the list is endless.
As I lay in my room with candles lit, incense burning, and all the lights off, I feel at peace.
I am truly humbled by the peace it brings. Listen to your body. Take queues from yourself.
Respect yourself, honor yourself, love yourself.
