This is beautiful! It’s important to love yourself and take time for you.
I have finally come to realize this after a hard 10 months of having two daughters. I felt almost in balance before I became pregnant with my second daughter. I then spent my whole pregnancy mainly stressed out. To be completely honest I was afraid and knew that having two kids was going to be really challenging for me. I constantly focused on how hard things were going to be…which made it come true. We manifest what we focus our thoughts and energy on. The past 2 months I finally started realizing this (Took me long enough!) and started focusing on more positive thoughts.
I have learned to take some time for me. Before I would put 110% into taking care of my kids all day and watching over them like a hawk. Then I finally realized how draining that is. My youngest will be turning 12 months/1 year old in two months. I need to pull back from her and let her play. I need to pull back from both of them and give them freedom to roam and play. So that’s just what I have been doing. Letting go, relaxing, learning to breathe deeply and pause when stressed, and most of all don’t hold on to negative energy and thoughts. I’m finally doing yoga again and taking time to meditate!! I’m excited about that and the freedom I have reclaimed. I’m actually taking time to drink tea every day. It’s as if I was being followed by a dark cloud and now it’s gone.
When I meditate I tell myself all kinds of nice things. I tell myself; you are loved, breathe out the negative and breathe in the positive, you are beautiful, you are strong, you are centered…and many other countless nice things I can think of. I feel amazing afterward. It’s a perfect example of positive words, thoughts, and energy can do. Afterward it’s like my “battery” is filled back to 100% and I don’t feel drained mentally/physically. It’s beautiful! It all resonates perfectly with this quote. 💗
