You have a right to thrive, to laugh, to enjoy and to love – and so do I 🙏

I no longer hide. I have a right to thrive, to laugh, to enjoy and to love. I will no longer let people’s opinions of me define me. I choose who I want to be and I choose to blossom into everything I desire. I follow my heart, my joy, my passion and my desire.

In the midst of despair – know that this too shall pass

There are days when I shatter into millions of pieces, days when I cannot find hope. But, even in the midst of despair I know that this too shall pass. Night will come, and my body, mind and soul will get some rest.

Even the worst of days will come to an end. No matter how bad I have felt during my day – when darkness falls outside and everything is quiet, I find some relief.

Tomorrow is a new day, a new opportunity to be kinder to myself and be more selective in my focus. 🙏

Every breath I take breathes new life into my body 🙏

Today is a wonderful day. It is Saturday and it is raining outside – my favourite weather. Life is beginning to feel good again and I can feel how every breath I take breathes new life into my body. It feels like the long cold frozen winter is finally beginning to melt away and a beautiful spring is taking its place.

🌸 Flip your fears into something good 🌸

Do you have something that makes you feel sad, worried or insecure? Then you have been thinking a lot of negative thoughts regarding that topic, that is why it feels so bad.

The good news is that you can change how you feel relative to all topics, no matter what it is. It just takes a willingness to feel better and a choice to start reaching for better feeling thoughts on this topic. It takes time, it takes practice but it is possible.

You can begin right now by just gently being aware of what thoughts you think. When you notice a negative thought that makes you feel a slight bit uncomfortable – flip it into a more general thought that gives you relief. That is enough. You have begun to change your pattern. Keep going with this and with time these general thoughts about the topic will come naturally to you. From that emotional place you will begin to notice more positive perspectives on the topic and you will feel really good again.

When you fall apart and want to give up 🙏

It is ok to fall apart, it is ok to give up, just keep breathing. One moment at a time. I know it feels hard sometimes, I know you just want to run away and hide from it all… and yes, that would be easier temporarily, but you can’t hide from your problems – you have to face them and you have to be there for yourself. Be your own support in these painful moments. Sooth and comfort yourself.

You are doing the best you can and that is enough. 🙏 Be kind to yourself, give yourself some mental rest by quieting your mind. Just focus on your breathing for a while and feel your every heart beat strenghten you again. This too shall pass and you will feel better again. 🙏

Being alone replenishes my energy 🥰

The best moment of the evening is when my babies are sleeping peacefully and I get a few hours of me-time. I love my two little babies so much, but I also appreciate getting some quiet me-time every day. I replenish my energy every second I am alone, and when I can be alone in the quiet darkness of the night, it feels like I breathe life back into my body. I guess I am a bit of an introvert 🥰.

Tonight I will enjoy listening to some music and just relax in bed. Perfect evening 🙏.

Your heart still beats for you 🙏

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. 🙏

A moment alone – it feels like I am breathing life back into my body 🙏

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. 🙏

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.
