Well, Monday’s post was a little heavier than normal. Heavier, but necessary as we head into the silly season.
It is so damn easy to get swept up in all the fuss of Christmas. To end up a puddle on the floor of stress between presents and shopping, and food and family and commitments.
For many, Christmas is one of the most stressful times of year imaginable. So today’s challenge is about allowing yourself space.
It’s something we often honour others with. We allow them time to process, to plan, to move forward. Yet, when it comes to self, we harass, belittle, demean and stress with little to no acknowledgement of the pressure we have placed on ourself.
So today I want you to do two things:
1) Write a list of all the things you are thankful for about yourself. It could be your humour, your generosity, your spunk, pep or attitude. Anything and everything you admire about yourself. Write it down, feel it, believe it.
2) Step 2 is to meditate with it. Chuck on some awesome music, or sit in silence, whatever works for you and feel the words you wrote. Feel the truth in the energy that radiates from them. Create a space for you to heal from the stimuli that bombards you daily. Create a space for you to just be.
Allow yourself a moment of peace. Release your perceived shortcomings, embrace your possibilities.
And see where you go…
