When you start doing things for you, it’s like a whole new world opens up. I’ve always thought I had a purpose to help others to heal in some way. That the things I’ve gone through already in my life have been preparing me for something else. That while I am healing, maybe I can help others as well.
Self love is the best form of healing and living. Releasing the guilt we have over putting ourselves first. Doing things that feel right, being around only people that are good for our soul and letting go of the toxic ones. Listening to our gut and leaning into our passion.
I took a Reiki course yesterday and it released a whole bunch of stuff I’ve been carrying around inside. The one that practiced on me, told me the entire time the words that went through her head when she had her hands on me were: “I am strong. I am courageous. I am brave. I am free.” this has made me determined to pursue this training, but also to pursue other things I haven’t done, because it was looked down upon by those closest to me in my life.
I have never felt so awake and blessed. My hands are certified healers now people! How cool is that? Find what makes you tick, and do it. Just because you are a mom, or you work full time, or you are getting a divorce, or you have kids, or you are busy….it is no excuse, we are all busy. You need to take care of you.
At the end of your life, the house, the sports teams, the cars, the furniture, the hours logged in at a desk you hate, the people you put up with cause it was just easier….none of this will matter. Right now, I am in the worst chapter of my life, but all it has done, is set me free. Free to write the next on exactly how I want it to be written. No more “I wish I could…”, “What if….”, “too bad I can’t….” How I love myself, shows others how to love me. And I love hard people.
So go love yourself, it will be the best thing you ever do!
