I realize time and time again, that no matter what we are going through, practicing self love, compassion and kindness is how we find balance. Coming from a place of self worth and making time to do self care- being in it being a practice, this means that it takes our doing. Action that comes from the intention to feel good. Because we deserve to feel amazing, free, inspired and energized.
Picking up the phone and asking for help, making a meal, going to a yoga class, planning goals that align with our current needs, while keeping mind that we are not superheroes.
We embrace imperfection. We flow imperfectly and together through life and all that it has to offer, embracing all of who we are along this journey.
We choose love over fear.
Sometimes when I'm feeling less in touch with the needs of my heart, I'll ask myself, "What would the kindest most compassionate version of myself encourage me to do in this situation?" And from there it all becomes clear. Balanced decisions that encourage action, but without sabotaging our precious energy.
At the end of the day, the most important relationship we nurture is the one we have with ourselves. And as we fall madly in love with ourselves, we have that much more love to share.
