”Relax. My darling, unwind. Be patient and stay alert. You’re coming home. To yourself.”
Sunrise over a new day. Summer, you’re coming to an end. Fall, I welcome your gentle, peaceful breeze. Now I can finally hear the whispers in the wind. The clouds lay heavy, the rain is light. A new dawn burning bright. Lighting candles with my flaming heart. In between seasons, we are. What better time, than now, for a restart.
Oh summer dear, I sense your last days are here. It’s time to unwind, and get ready for fall. Although I’ve experienced lazy, hot & humid summer days I’ve also been working a lot. These past three months have been busy and my body craves rest. It needs fuel. It needs love. However, the last couple of days have been a real self-care retreat, filled with self-love, healthy plant based foods, yoga, meditation, reflections and sweaty workouts.
With that being said, below you’ll find some tips & tricks on how to recharge your soul. How to feel all sparkly, and good about yourself again, when you feel unmotivated and ready to crawl back to bed.
Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, even you.
”Temporarily closed for spiritual maintenance.”
I love my yoga. I love my meditation. I love my books. I love spending time alone, getting to know myself on a deeper level. I love to soak up the present moment, listen to my heartbeat, the sound of the waves, the whispers in the wind. I love to write. Recharging, and allowing myself to be me, with all my flaws and imperfections. Checking-in on what I’m working towards, and what I’m working on in my mind right now. Slowing down, and taking it all in. Being aware, and listening within.
Write down your thoughts, your reflections and those things you wish to accomplish. Put them on a piece of paper and witness how they transform into reality.
”yesterday. NOW. tomorrow.”
Just cause you’re breathing, doesn’t mean you’re alive.
Be here. Now.
”Be a better you, for you.”
Work on yourself, every day. Strive to always do your best; and remember your best today might not be your best tomorrow. Life can be a real battlefield at times; things will happen that you didn’t prepare for, nonetheless, try to stay open-minded and positive in order for creative solutions to arise.
Do it for you, not for anyone else. You do your thing. What do you fancy? What makes you happy? Do that, and do it for you ❤
Light a candle and just sit for a while. Let the stillness speak. Be aware of the silence, of what’s happening within you. Relax, and let go of your worries; yesterday’s sorrows and tomorrow’s to-do’s. Count your breath. Count your blessings. Learn to appreciate the moments when you’re doing absolutely nothing. If you listen carefully you’ll hear those whispers from deep within. Don’t ignore them. Pay attention, and take it all in.
”It’s okay to not be okay all the time.”
Every now and then you have to unplug, turn the airplane mode on, have ice cream and allow those negative feelings to gently (or not so gently…) flow through you. Don’t resist them, however, don’t get caught up in them. Let them pass by like clouds on a sunny day. Feel whatever you need to feel, and then let it all go. It’s okay to not be okay all the time. Feelings are temporarily. This too shall pass.
”Stay alert and listen to your body. Rest when tired. Awaken with a new heart, with a new passion burning within.”
