Ok really!! What are you doing for yourself? Now. Yes, in these times? Seriously!!!!! If not now, when? I know. I know all those people you are taking care of and worrying about and concerned over. I get it. But the buck stops here.
If nothing else we must learn to take care of ourselves first! First! First! Is your monkey mind saying but that is selfish, narcissistic, I don’t have time (even in isolation), the house will fall apart, the this, the that? I get it. I do.
AND time to break through that old, tired, worn out conversation in your head. It is false and unhealthy and holding you back. Now is the time to find the simple pleasures that really make your heart sing. Seeing the bees in full force right now, hearing the birds and trying to spot them, putting on music I WANT to listen to and rocking out (even if the teen is horrified hahahahaha). These have been a few of mine recently that just make me feel so good and calm and at peace. Fully engaging in the moment for yourself.
Let us learn this now in isolation so that we can carry it forward to the new normal. Don’t go back, don’t wish for what was as “normal”. Time to reinvent, rediscover, reboot and go forward creating it exactly how you want it to be. Imagine and create your new normal.
What are you taking with you? What are you leaving behind? Like the snake shedding his skin…...leave it and walk into your new way of being. Bring gusto, energy, faith, willingness, strength and more. Let’s go! The world needs us to live from our authentic selves, together, each bringing a wholeness that will make a difference. Let it begin with you.
Happy Tuesday. Welcome to your new you.
