When you don’t set clear, strong boundaries or practice saying NO – it will take its toll on your body. Maybe not right away, but it will slowly add up until something so strong hits your body, that you are forced to rest and question your way of living.
Thank your body for trying to keep you safe. Love your body for trying to protect you. And, honor your body by setting clear and strong boundaries. Allow yourself to heal by saing NO.
You can’t force a rose to bloom in the snowy winter when the ground is frozen. Let the rose rest. No matter how dark and cold the winter might seem, spring will eventually emerge with its warm, comforting winds. The sun will kiss the earth once again, and nature will come to life. Each season has its time, each season is equally valuable because it all contributes to the bigger picture.
Kindness can cleanse a murky heart and purify the darkest of minds. No words are needed – kindness is the language of your soul.
Today, no matter where you go, what you do or who you are with – be kinder to yourself. You are doing the best you can, given the emotional state you are in. We all carry our own stories with us, but it is never too late to begin to write a happier ending.
Do you want to know what can heal a broken heart and a shattered soul? Love. Love can give warmth to the coldest of hearts and nurture your body, mind, and soul. Love is the answer to the question you didn’t even know you had.
OK, so you have been through a lot of awful things in your life, and people have treated you in horrible ways… that is all very sad, and I truly wished none of that would have happened to you. You deserve to be treated with kindness, love, and respect, and life should be fun and wonderful for you. But you know what, what happened to you has already happened. No amount of sadness, anger, or pain you feel NOW can ever make that go away. However, YOU can do something about how you feel today.
The first step might be to say to yourself, ok, I have spent enough time on feeling bad. It is enough. I really look forward to feeling better again, I want to feel good again. I want to smile, I want to laugh, I want to relax and enjoy life again. I will no longer hold myself back from all those wonderful things because I finally realize I CAN do something about how I feel today.
