Daily Deep Dose

I trust that with spring comes the birth of new hope, the creation of paths and beautiful life. The gloom days that have followed me through winter are finally going to subside, and the sun will kiss me sweetly with her nourishing smile. I wondered if I would make it through, now I no longer need to worry because I have survived. Like all living creatures, I happily embrace the coming of light.

Daily Deep Dose

When I was younger, I sought the protection of others to feel I belonged. As the years passed on I realized that unfortunately, often the ones you love are the ones who hurt you the most. So now I have to reconsider where I seek this sense of safe and self. Past stings from others still linger down low, but without a doubt, these difficulties have changed me beneficially. I know now that with my remarkable spirit is the place where I belong. I must protect myself, for my spirit deserves a safe home.

If you ever observe the way a cat moves, she is selective about what causes her to extract a reaction. She neither dwells on the past, nor fusses about the future. She is unaffected by external distractions. Her only focuses are survival and keeping herself and the ones she cares for well. It may appear she is lazy, but she will conjure up a pounce if something is worth the fight. All too often she finds, the best reaction is no reaction. Then it's time to move on.

Back and forth, so the rhythm of life goes. You have to choose yourself as the pinnacle of focus at all times, even when others you love require time. It is not that others are unimportant, it is that you mustn't forget you are important too. You deserve love and care and to ultimately be accountable for your care. At this moment in your life, it is your responsibility to formulate hindsight. Take control of what you know and let all the bothersome pieces from yesterday go.

I have found her now. I had been looking in all the wrong places. I never knew a love like this before. She sticks with me through thick and thin, she tantalizes my mind and she's not afraid to admit her mistakes with humility. She doesn't let me get away with nonsense, or ignore past lessons. There is no one quite like her for me. It is the most intimate experience to watch her seed. Her name is Me, and she is the focal point of my unpredictable journey. I have learned to love her endlessly.

The Healthier Option

I am no longer am searching for who I was before. The coffin has been sealed and cremated too many times before. I will never look at the measure of my happiness as a possession or affection. I will instead value the moment and accept the magic of my imperfection. You see, I have noticed how much time we place in to being successful and achieving dreams, but once I, like many others, have reached that plateau, it doesn't seem as thrilling as before. It is not that I do not want to strive to create a more comfortable life, it's just that it's not all that matters anymore. I would like my expectations to be much simpler, like they seemed many years ago. What matter most is my health, not anything less or more. Wellness is a true indication of success and achievement, I couldn't see that clearly before. I am searching for ways to honour this new path, but it's not simple, you know? Old routines are hard to break and what I thought of as valuable doesn't permit for my survival anymore.  It's time to seek an alternative approach to how much time I spend accomplishing the new goals I have in-store.

Daily Deep Dose

When I am at peace, I feel the most content. When I take the time out to walk away from the day and melt the stresses away. The movement of my breath is what I trust the most in the world. When it comes with ease and gently, I recognize how important it is for me to be aware that I have the power to heal myself, no matter the impact or blow. The subtleness of knowing that like a caterpillar, most naturally I will unfold and flourish to be more beautiful then before.

PP Power Jam #32: A Woman's Worth

For all my ladies, whether you are single or coupled - never forget your worth.

I plan on finding my AK one day - le sigh.

It is key to define the conversations that you need to have with yourself, versus those you need to have with medical professionals. The most important thing to recognize is sometimes conversing with yourself can get loud and lead to no resolve. Don't be afraid to admit your depressed or anxious. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength and maturity.

The most valuable assets a human can possess cannot be replaced. They are characteristics of what truly define a person as both unique and an expression of the divine. They are not possessions, nor jobs, nor lovers that have brought happiness at specific times in life. These assets are neither fleeting or faux, when they are grounded with perspective they bring hope. Heart and mind, let these beautiful expressions that can't be seen remain bright.

Stress permeates like a deadly disease. I am still trying to understand how to deal with the complexity of supporting those I love, and often feeling helpless that I can't change their circumstances. I will always be someone who cares deeply, but what happens when caring for others begins to affect my health? I am still trying to accept my limitations and the priority to heal myself.
