I will hold your hand through the darkness

Come to me, I will hold your hand through the darkness. I know there will be stars to light up your path.

You don’t have to dry your tears or hide your pain. Come as you are, feel as you feel. Even in you weakest of moments your heart and soul radiate love, kindness and an ever increasing strenght. I can see through all the pain, all the hurt and all shattered dreams and what I see is beautiful. 🌹

Trust your instincts – if it feels off, it is off πŸ™

This can be hard at times and it is indeed something you must continue to practice all your life. I am usually very kind and I have always been a people pleaser, but I am trying to break this cycle by listening to my heart and learning to say no when it feels even the slightest bit off. Today was a really good example of this.

The other week a person asked me to help him with something. I said yes to helping him when he asked me about this the first time, which was last week. I was supposed to help him today but I could feel this really uneasy feeling in my entire body today. The uneasy feeling just intensified as the day progressed and I even spoke up about it to my closest co-worker. She advised me to say no and to listen to my instinct. Even if this person is kind and well-meaning – if my instincts says that it feels off, it is off. So I did. I said no and I immediately felt so much better.

This truly is a process. If you are a people pleaser you truly enjoy helping other people and as soon as someone has a problem you want to help them feel better – but what about your own well-being? You have to think about your own safety and well-being first, then the other person. And a big part in this is to say NO when it feels off. That is the key to being of value both to others and to yourself.

Your heart still beats for you πŸ™

When life seems cruel and cold, take a step back, quiet your mind and listen to the soothing stillness within. Your heart still beats for you and life still courses through your veins.

There is so much kindness, love and joy in the world, and in every situation there is value and opportunities to grow. Embrace life as it is, love yourself where you are, make peace with everyone and everything and start making the best of what ever comes your way. πŸ™

Practice saying no with a light heart πŸ™

Be kinder to yourself, you are doing the best you can. You have to listen to your heart and give yourself enough time each day to breathe and find your inner balance. Let it take time. Learn to say no and practice saying no with a light heart.

You are the most important person in your life – how you feel should matter more than anything. Of course you want to be of value and help others, but you have to take care of yourself first.
