The greatest accomplishment in life

Finally feeling tired ❤

I love coming home after a long day at work. I only get a few seconds alone on the couch before my babies rush to join me 🤣.

But now I have put them to bed and I am going to enjoy some pilates.

I fell asleep so quckly and easily at around midnight last night, and I slept so good the entire night. It feels awesome that this month’s full moon craziness is over so that I can fall asleep at night again. ❤ And I am really tired today, a feeling I truly welcome and embrace fully.

🌸 A break from everything 🌸

Intense inner pain and sadness – a practiced perception

Sometimes it feels like the world is a cold and lonely place, like your life is useless and you feel such intense inner pain and sadness. Those are the days when you should be even kinder to yourself, let yourself know that it is ok. How you feel is how you feel, make peace with it. Then acknowledge that it would be nice to feel a little relief and that you look forward to that. See this moment as a perfect moment to distract yourself with anything you can think of. You only feel bad as long as you think thoughts that feel bad. If you distract yourself with something else, you can distract yourself from these sad thoughts and when you do, you will feel relief.

It is actually a lot easier than you think. All it takes is 17 seconds of distraction and you will begin to feel better. Unless you choose to continue to think these painful thoughts. It is impossible to feel good when you think thoughts that feel bad – so that is where your work is: distract yourself until you feel relief.

But be kind to yourself! Feeling sad can be a habit, a habit of thinking. But even a habit is nothing more than a practiced perception, a practiced way of thinking. Once you begin to change the thoughts you think, ever so slightly, you will begin to see lasting changes in how you feel and what happens to you as well.
