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
