Greetings beloveds! Happy Wellness Wednesday!
“Give yourself credit where credit is due; focus on what you have been able to do & not what you weren’t able to do.”
In my meditation this past weekend, the title for today’s post is what I heard through Spirit. Working on my personal goals, some things haven’t been met as yet. Feeling melancholic & unaccomplished, I was in a state of constant inner reflection, over-analyzing every detail, what I could’ve done more of or better with, what I may have missed or what I gave too much attention to that maybe I shouldn’t have. Being so busy, I hardly had time to really sit with what I was feeling, but rather just feel overwhelmed but in mommy mode so no time for that! Yet, thankfully, that still quiet voice nidged me in a direction to take a moment when the day was done & meditate. “Still your mind; give yourself credit where credit due….it’s okay.” Teary-eyed because I knew this to be true, later on I began to think about how true this is for many of us, of how we focus on what we haven’t done or didn’t quite do, forgetting about what we have done, & in essence robbing ourselves of our Peace of mind.
The theme for Wellness Wednesday today is: Don’t be so hard on yourself! You made it through yesterday & are here for another day. Even if it was by the skin of your teeth & you weren’t sure how you would pull through, you did! Give thanks for the small accomplishments, for those infamous baby steps. Held that yoga pose 2secs longer than the day before? Replaced some cuss words with deep breaths? Ate a salad? Cried one less moment than the day before? Whatever it is that means progress for you, pat yourself on the back for making steps towards a more Peaceful you. The more you focus on the areas of improvement, the more they will increase. So go ahead & appreciate yourself. You are worth it! Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡☆
Challenge: On a sticky note today, write out one positive step you made in acheiving your goals (could be short or long term), & place it somewhere where you will see it daily (i.e. bathroom mirror, car dashboard, cell phone case, etc). Whenever you feel like you haven’t done anything, take a look at it & remind yourself that you are doing something. 😊
