What made you smile today? ✨
I'm grateful for a super lovely brunch today at @lebeleichthamburg (special thanks to @l.e.m.i.a for organizing this and bringing us together #lebeleichtgirls 💛), for incredibly delicious and moist banana muffins 🍌🍌(can anyone bring me some???), for every bit of blue sky I got to see ⛅️, for meaningful conversations, sharing thoughts about education, consumerism, perception, the ego, reality..., I'm grateful for new plans, for ideas that make my heart jump, for distancing myself from negativity and for what I'm attracting into my life since making this conscious choice and especially taking aligned action 🌚 I'm grateful for the little girl on the train who smiled at me, grateful for the sweetest cherries and an amazing purple sweet potato that tasted like cheesecake, just better. For daily walks and yoga practice and how good it feels to stick to it. I'm grateful for feeling how my mind is shifting since I'm making a point in doing affirmations and other self love practices daily. For me the most important part of this is actually the first hour of the day. .
Right when I wake up I repeat affirmations and gratitude mantras, giving thanks for another day, I choose positive thoughts about myself, actively fight any negativity or anxiety that might be coming up. A few months ago I cried most days when I woke up, feeling unbearable pain and fear crushing over me, just wanting to fall back asleep so I can escape the mind hell I found myself in... Phone still turned off, i start my day with dry skin brushing followed by a cold (!) shower - both while being really present and feeling into my body, actively choosing positive thoughts about it... Then yoga and meditation + journaling, sometimes reading. This might sound super weird to some of you but I can't stress enough how much this is helping me to overcome my mental health struggles and rewire my mind... while truly surrendering to this beautiful process ✨
