Have you had one of those days you hit bottom. Your boat sank and there is a cloud over you and ropes wrapped around and around you to a numb feeling. That was my yesterday. It was a come to meeting with Cindy thyself.
You go and you go and you go and you go and then your give out!!! Why do we allow ourselves to get that way. The realization is because we don't LOVE ourselves and then to follow that up we don't RESPECT ourselves and throw the
SELF WORTH and we throw our hands up with what is the use. We are living from a state of no empowerment.
So what do you do, cry,go ahead and feel it, empty that out and then sit down and have a talk with yourself. This is interesting I want you to get what I am about to say here... We or atleast I have talked about I am so overwhelmed, I am so busy, I am so sad, I feel used etc. Well here is the deal when we talk about those things the body says oh you do OK I need to get busy to make sure that happens for you. The body doesn't say she really doesn't mean that she is feeling down a at the moment, it takes it for the gospel truth. So that being said lets process on....
We first need to go back to the source that fills all and that is LOVE! LOVE for ourselves. When we have LOVE for ourselves we will become empowered and set healthy boundaries, we will feel respect for ourselves, our self worth will increase and we will start to stand up for ourselves in a positive healthy way. We will understand what is serving us, what is loving us, what is deserving of our time. If it is not, we need to quit as that is what is wearing us out and convincing us we don't have a leg in the game of life here.
Your thinking.. I can't quit my family. Of course not but you can set some boundaries for yourself with them and WOW is that a hard one to do when we have been conditioned the other way. You know if someone doesn't do it no one can learn anything from it. No thank you or thank you for asking but that doesn't work for me to do right at this time. It doesn't mean never just not right now. If we give and we are already give out then resentment sets in and you lose your joy.
Since I had lost joy I needed a change. I sit down and made out a blueprint for my body ... What I wanted each part to look like and how was I going to help it feel better. Lots of water, some juice fasting, lots of greens, etc. as my body has felt the bloat of life and it took it on in reality too. We truly are what we think and eat. Set some boundaries for my work sch. even though I work for myself, it has its own challenges. First hrs of the morning is MINE to walk, read, mediate, journal all things that is going to fuel myself first and then my day as I will be fully charged ready to go.
Very similar to a phone when we have a few bars left we are looking for a charge somewhere. So lets keep our bars full by being fully charged from the beginning of the day. Feel free to recharge during the day its your body if you don't plug it in no one else is going too. Here are some ways I fuel and refuel... I LOVE LOVE writing my thankful list.
I am thankful for my heart that pumps blood to give me life, my nostril the passage way for the air that fills my lungs etc. you get the picture. Makes you feel good writing it and makes the body feel good as well. You know the body FEELS... it feels pain, pleasure, joy, love, protected. This is the one body God gave us and loving it and yourself is the greatest gift you can give yourself first and it will then flow sincerely to others....
Sending bunches of LOVE to you.
I am so thankful you took your precious time to read this blog, I hope it helped you in some way to make your a day alittle better....
