Note to self…(because sometimes we all need a reminder!)
Today I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Big time!
I stopped to think why and here’s what I came up with:
I’m juggling work and school holidays so feel a little stretched.
I haven’t been to yoga for 4 days.
I didn’t meditate yesterday.
I’m feeling some nerves around choosing the right school for my son.
I am detoxing and missing my caffeine boost!
I have a constant to-do list in my head which feels tiring.
Just stopping and checking in with myself has made me feel SO much better!
My mood shifted in an instant.
There is a reason I am a little off and that awareness enables me to allow my feelings because they make sense!
By writing that quick list I can see how I need to take care of myself (yoga and meditation – STAT!) and I can love that part of me that thinks she is super woman and has to do everything alone. Now I can reach out for support where needed.
Do you see how I was able to move from the victim state of a bad mood because I wasn’t connected to myself into an empowered state because I chose to connect within and then make the decision to give myself what I need?
Self compassion is empowering. It’s liberating. It’s your ticket to freedom.
How could you be more self compassionate today?

P.S. The ‘I Am Connected’ meditation on my album of Guided Visualizations is gorgeous. You can grab it on Amazon by clicking HERE.
