Woe! 40 lbs later. How did I miss this? Got busy with Life I suppose. Got busy with our Business could be a good excuse. Sitting in front of the computer all day in stretching pants could have done it. Walking into the the kitchen every time I felt stressed may have caused it. I could spend my time guessing how that happened or I can choose to recognize it now and do something about it. Today, I want to share some thoughts on Honoring the Self.
Let’s face it, we see what we want to see. It’s not like I haven’t gone out and bought bigger pants this past year. I’ve been choosing to live in sweat pants because they are simply more comfortable than regular pants. The signs were all there. I made these under-the-radar decisions because somewhere along the way I decided my business and daily tasks were more important than myself. The question is subconsciously, do I value myself less than my business? Or is it that I see my business (and everything else) more valuable than my well-being? At the end of the day, I simply gave my power away to the Earthly demands.
When you find yourself in this type of situation, remember that the most important thing we can do for ourselves is not blaming ourselves. Instead, thank ourselves for recognizing it Now. If you have a hard time doing so, I suggest turning to a ritual while send yourself some loving energy. I light a candle. That’s my go-to since it’s accessible for me. If I’m out and about, then I’d reach into my pocket and touch the amethyst that’s on my key chain.
As Spiritual folks, we tend to focus on our Spiritual bodies and forget that we have a physical body to care for on Earth. Whether we like it or not, a healthy physical body supercharges our Mind and Spirit, helping us Center ourselves. When we feel good, we channel messages better as energy work can be taxing to the physical body.
So, I made a decision this past week. I put myself first!
