Do you find yourself entangled in a long list of to-do's with little or no time for self-care? Are your obligations leaving you too exhausted to kick your rear in gear and actually make it to the gym or that yoga class?
Sometimes we all need a little reminder to get ourselves in check and re-evaluate what is truly important and how we are setting our priorities...
On one hand I feel extremely blessed that my plate has been very full with a business that is booming, amazing clients, networking events, further training, masterminding; great friends, summer activities and the most incredible loving relationship of my life, but I have to keep myself in check and make sure that I practice my own medicine...radical self-care and honoring my body as my temple!
It IS my medicine and I teach it because I need it and I know what it is like when "everything else" takes over and you let you and your self-care slide to the bottom of your priorities. I just recently had to evaluate what has to go in order to make room for more of what makes my heart sing in a sustainable, healthy way that also supports ME. And then I had to take steps to clear away those duties in order to free up my time and energy so that I can really take care of me... I have about a week before this transition happens and already feel a huge sense of relief, and even though a part of me is sacred to let go, I know that when I make room for greater creativitiy and presence, miracles happen. I had to let something go in order to create that space...
So what about you? Do you have anything in your life that you need to let go of in order to take care of yourself? Maybe it's a thought, behavior or habit, or maybe it is an obligation that you need to let go of... Take inventory and assess the bigger picture. What needs to give so you can create more of what you truly desire? And how can you make room for more self-care and making choices that honor your body-mind and spirit?
Share below, I would love to hear how this shows up in your life!
I believe in YOU!
