Be kinder to yourself, especially when it feels really hard ❤️

Take it in your own pace. One breath at a time. Some days are harder than others. Be kinder to yourself, especially when it feels really hard. Take a step back from all the chatter of the world. Take a step back, close your eyes and breathe deeply.

Don’t push through the pain or hide under your anxiety. Just close your eyes, take a deep breath and acknowledge how you feel. Sooth your raging anxiety. Sooth your burning insecurity. Sooth your racing heart.

When you listen to your body, when you acknowledge how you feel and when you try to sooth yourself into feeling relief – you are healing.

Just like the beautiful, pure lotus flower emerging from the muddy water

Just like the beautiful, pure lotus flower emerging from the murky, muddy water – there is value in everything that happens to you. Let it all inspire you to find your inner strength and use it as motivation to blossom into everything you desire to be.

Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without the mud.” —Thich Nhat Hanh

The magical key to not only recovering, but thriving

What if the worst thing that ever happened to you, could be the best thing that ever happened to you as well?

What if this is what finally inspired you to change how you view yourself, how you view life – how you view everything!

You can’t change what happened to you, but you can change how you view it and that is your key to not only recovering, but thriving.

Like a sleeping bumble bee, soothed and shielded by the gentle rose

Like a sleeping bumble bee, soothed and shielded by the gentle rose – resting in your own safe haven until your body is ready to rise back up again.

It is reliefgiving to withdraw from the world into your own safe haven, however, facing the memory of the traumatic event and facing how you feel, might be a beautiful next step on your healing journey. You can’t change what happened to you, but you can change how you feel about it, and that will make all the difference.
