A moment alone – it feels like I am breathing life back into my body πŸ™

At night when I have put my babies to bed, darkness has fallen outside and I am lying in bed – that is the most soothing and reliefgiving moment to me.

I always feel my energy strenghten every moment when I am alone. I value my moments of alone time so much – it feels like I am breathing life back into my body.

As I lay in bed I like to think about all the things I appreciate with my life and with this moment. Tonight I feel so much appreciation for my two little babies, I love them so much. I feel appreciation for my supportive co-worker who truly cares about me, and for my boss who is such a kind and thoughtful woman. I also feel deep appreciation for my boyfriend who has been by my side for 12 years now. No one in my life has cared as much about me and my wellbeing as he has. πŸ™

These are only a few things I feel appreciation for right now. What things are you feeling appreciation for right now?

A confession from a people pleaser

It has been a really good day at work today. But a really good question came to my mind – why do I feel bad when I don’t do as others want me to? I always feel guilty when I have to turn someone down or say no. But why?

I talked about this with a co-worker today and she said to me that concidering all the negative things I have been through in my life, I should definitely start valuing myself and my needs more than what others say, think, want or do. She is so right.

Logically I know I have to listen to how I feel and what I want – and I do, some of the times, but not often enough. I am sick and tired of feeling guilty when I have to say no.

We are all equal beings, my desires, wishes and needs are just as important as anyone else’s. I will no longer satisfy the needs of those around at the cost of my own wellbeing. I will respect and value my opinion and I will honor my desires as well – I will say no when it feels off to me and I no longer take responsibility for other people’s happiness or sadness. No more. It is not my job – how you feel is your job. How I feel is my job. I will take better care of myself from now on.

Feel life coursing through your veins – let love and appreciation fill your heart tonight

As the sun sets tonight, be thankful that you made it through this day. You are still breathing, your heart is still beating – life is still coursing through your veins.

As you lay down tonight, put your hand on your chest and as you feel your heart beating peacefully, thank your body for taking such sweet care of you. Your body is amazing, your every cell is a miracle. Let love and appreciation fill your heart as you drift off to sleep tonight and lovingly allow your body, mind and soul some rest.
