Good evening,
I had to pull in myself into check last week!!  Of all the teaching, counselling  helping and guiding people to find a more fulfilled and joyous mindful way of life I do  – I forgot it myself!
How I hear you say?
I filled my diary to the max with client appointments, training courses, workshops, entertaining.  I filled my diary with preparation for my daughters 16th birthday, cooking, cleaning and so it went on…..
I did not make time for me!!
Saturday evening I went into meltdown, exhausted and teary..
Again, I did not make time for me!!!
So what was going on?   What was my lesson here?  Did I have hurry sickness?
I on reflection was not acting mindfully or being kind to myself.  After my daily morning meditation practice I went from one thing to another;  teaching, counselling  etc.   My day often ended at 1am, not a good example to set. So what have I learned and how shall I move forward?
Well, that is easy as I realise that on some level it was a warning that I am only human and that if I fall too far away from my true self a meltdown occurs.   So this week I have pulled myself back into check.  I have planned some quality time for me and reminded myself to be mindful.
In doing this I am already seeing the benefits.  If I am kind to myself, if I act mindfully,  if I nourish and resource my body and mind.  If I do all these things my body and mind respond with love.
So ask yourself are you being kind and Mindful to your body and mind?
Love and Blessings

  1. sometimes we get so wrapped up in the success of what we are doing and the excitement of everything and we start to push push push ourselves harder and harder. somehow we begin to believe that we are superhuman and don’t need to stop. the result is….oh dear, we are no longer happy, we don’t feel invincible and every thing feels like it is falling apart. So glad you are once more being kind to yourself. big hug xx
