Radical self-care in times of uncertainty
We live in a rapidly changing world where much of the old systems no longer work. In fact, I doubt the systems that are in place were ever designed with our future in mind. Today we live in a world created by years of old thought patterns needing to be thrown out. So that we may build a brighter future for the planet and the many generations to come, it is time for us to be the change we wish to see in the world. It begins with you, and it begins with me.
This past year has challenged us on a collective and global scale. Especially during times of distress, we need to take care of ourselves and each other more than ever, as if our lives depend on it because they do. Just as living through a pandemic, constant stress compromises the immune system and is emotionally and energetically depleting.
It's important to remember that we can only care for others as well as we care for ourselves.
Daily self-care is vital and will benefit you as well as those you love. Just as a ripple on the water creates more ripples, the better you feel, the greater you are able to impact others.
Let this be your invitation to:
What is it you most enjoy?
Please give yourself a gift, start doing it today and reap the benefits of genuine self-care. Enjoy the little things that make your heart happy. One day they will be the big things.
Authenticity starts in the heart and is your most precious commodity. Authenticity is the highest form of being. Authenticity is at the heart of your every success.
"Authenticity is a collection of choices that we make every day. It's about the choice to show up and be real – the choice to be honest and true. The choice to let our true selves be seen" ~ Brené Brown
How does authenticity show up in your life?
You might ask yourself:
Aspire to be authentic. Remember how far you've come and how courageous you are. Dare to be vulnerable and accept all the parts that make up who you are.
When we give ourselves permission to be fully human, we free up the creative parts of ourselves, waiting to shine into the world.
To live an authentic life is to thrive, accepting no one's definition of our life but our own. To live a wholehearted life means to honor all the parts of ourselves wholeheartedly!
What would it look like if you were to step into 5% more authenticity in your life?
Here are some of my observations after striving to be more authentic in my life:
The light in me honors and sees the divine light in you. Namaste!
