Keep Going. You Are Doing Great.

It’s okay to be proud of the progress you’ve made thus far. It might not be where you would like to be, or where you thought you’d be, but regardless, it’s amazing how much work you’ve put in to get to this point. Continue on the path that’s best for you. Alignment comes to those who are consistent in their pursuit to get to where they know they deserve.

Keep going.

You Are Deserving of Balance in Your Relationships

Friendly reminder that relationships, whether romantic, familial, or platonic deserve to be tended to with effort, consistency, balance, reciprocity, and respect.

Note: You are not “too much”. It’s okay to stand up for yourself. Accept only what you deserve.

Side Note: Having needs doesn’t mean you are “needy.” Understand the work you need to do within yourself to grow in self-awareness. Know the difference between what you need from yourself and what healthy balanced relationships looks like for you.

Not everyone you meet will be apart of your story. Not everyone you know will remain in your story. The ones that stay, return, or want to make the relationship work regardless of the challenges and differences will be well worth the effort.

Your energy is sacred.

You Are Not Your Mistakes

Every day we are given the opportunity to make different decisions, ones that are more reflective of the person we want to become, more of the person we are working on creating.

Create and craft the reality that reveals the growth and lessons learned along the path you’ve taken. Continue and move forward, not dwelling on the past, but in greater awareness of yourself.

Forgive yourself and do better, better as defined by you, just because you deserve it. You deserve peace, healing, growth, and abundance. You have peace, you are healing, you are growing, and you are abundant.

Take one step and one moment at a time as you face the pain you’ve carried up to this point.
Release and relax. Allow yourself the space to feel what you’ve been holding on to.

Take that leap to move in the direction of change. You are deserving of the reality you envision for yourself.

Affirmation: I am learning and growing every day. I make decisions that are best for me. I am deserving of love, acceptance and peace. I am ready.

The Love I Seek is Also Seeking Me

Is anyone else as exhausted as I am?

The more I reflect, the more I realize how much energy it’s taking to process the grief that’s these past three years has weighed on my body, my heart, and my spirit. And even though I push past every time, I’m still tired.

Is anyone else like me? Where navigating the World is overwhelming some days. Where I try my best, but still it’s hard not to compare my life to others. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to live life as if I was another?

Where you asks the questions that don’t matter, but still blossom into ruminating thoughts. Like, will they accept me? Or, Can someone love me, too? Maybe, will I ever really feel free to be myself, 100% myself, without worrying that I’m too weird or different for the eyes that witness me? Perhaps it’s the sicknesses that plague my body that dictate my fate after all?

Who can love me, too? I ask myself as I wake up in an anxious puddle of sweat dripping down my burdened shoulders.

Maybe, just maybe it’s possible. The love. The acceptance. The bliss of freedom to be myself without fear.

I ask the universe to allow me that freedom.
Right now, I manifest that freedom. I am free from the drought of shame, grief, and guit. I am worthy of the love I seek because it seeks me too. I am ready to receive.

Take a moment to breathe with me.

Inhale for the count of three through your nose, and exhale for another count of three through your mouth.

Release the stress in your body and relax your muscles.

Check-in with yourself today, okay? You deserve peace and good things too.

Sending love and positive energy your way.

Affirmation: I Love My Body

Practice this mantra with me:

I honor my body by taking breaks and prioritizing self care. I am gentle with myself and allow myself to feel and process what is happening around me. My needs are valid and I reflect on each moment as I see fit. I am beautiful and I accept every part of myself. I understand that I can’t control all that happens around me, but I can control my approach. I am the crafter and the creator. I love my body and I choose to put myself first.
