"Wherever you are, be all there," my sweet fox (my Patronus!) reminds me.
Being with your body and mind moment can seem impossible. The hustle and bustle of each day leaves us exhausted, anxious, stressed. Your self-talk, perhaps, makes the mind an unfriendly place, creating tension in the body.
Lately, I've noticed my inner voice growing harsher again, more judgemental of my intelligence, body, and abilities.
As I gradually learn to love and respect myself, I choose a gentle compassion. Finding presence, I shift the words to express a positive idea. I take time to do yoga, drink tea, meditate. I am learning it is ok to treat and allow myself to feel radiant in my skin.
When you grow up being told by an abusive parent that you do not deserve good things, it weighs heavily on how you tend to yourself. On the path to healing, we can recognize when we begin the harsh tendencies and gently guide the self back to love and support 🙏 Every time you feel the negativity creep in, do something nurturing and healthy that feels good.
You deserve goodness. You deserve to treat yourself. You deserve your own love.
