The past few days have been extremely overwhelming for me. As a budding entrepreneur it seems I have a never ending to-do list. I have found recently that my OWN self care has been slipping. And that makes me feel guilty and out of integrity. Because I teach self care. I preach the benefits of it. I need to remind myself from time to time to listen to my own advice. . Those of us who are super sensitive empaths tend to be very outward focused. We are always scanning our environment feeling into peoples moods and energies. We are also natural born people pleasers. We LOVE to help other. Which is a beautiful thing. But it can become harmful to us when we feel guilty saying no. We feel if we say no to someone or an event or project that we are letting someone down disappointing them or worse- making them angry. We often feel that their reaction is our responsibility. And so we put ourselves last time and time again. We say yes over and over until we are completely drained exhausted and resentful. . But no is NOT A BAD WORD. No is a self-loving self-respecting responsible mature and often times kind word. We have to start asking ourselves why we always fall to the end of the line. Why we are so worried about disappointing others- but what about disappointing ourselves? I often ask my clients who are struggling to say no what would you say to a friend in this situation. Because the answer is almost always that the friend should stand up for and care for her energetic needs. So then why is it that YOU do not deserve the same is my next question. . You deserve to say no. You deserve to stand up and to take care of you. You are important and needed in this world. But if you dont give yourself the love you so freely give to others you will be stuck in a cycle of overwhelm turmoil and exhaustion. . Join me on January 26th for a potent conversation on how to care for yourself as a sensitive soul in this world. This powerful workshop is FREE and will ignite you on your path to re-connecting to the beautiful truth of who you are and to working on setting boundaries and practicing the magical word no. .

I think often we take these statements to mean only about ourselves, but in this case we should realize that we too, often have a lot to say about those we hardly. We assume, stereotype, and gossip to make ourselves feel better. Let's stop that and just spread love and kindness. Besides, we know how awful it feels to be talked about. by proteamundi

As much as it hurts to say this, I am realizing it is time to let go of some that I thought we would be friends for life.  We have grown apart and doesn't seem like we are ever going to find the time to catch up or keep up with each other.. I wish  you and your families the best.  You were always such a great friend, moving was a hard decision but one I am glad  I made. by littlemisstexas

Wong Kar-wai:  “If you have a minimum of experience, we know that all the complexity of the human being comes from the fact that their actions are often totally at odds with your thoughts, and that two human beings do not always react the same way to a given situation. Some people cry when they are sad, others are violent or, conversely, close themselves… That is why, rather than theorizing for hours, I have always preferred to turn the camera by marta

Self care, filling the tank, me time, relaxing, treating ourselves. We shouldn’t have to be reminded but with the jobs we have, as mums, cleaning and organising; it’s hard to know when to stop and say “enough”. Investing in yourself regularly prevents you suddenly getting beyond capable; where you can no longer give everything we have. “you cannot pour from an empty jug”. Here’s a few ideas for pampering, shopping and relaxing for putting our well-being higher up on the list of priorities by alisha

This is powerful. Take a moment to think about this... When you were missing self love in your life did you allow other people into your life that did not have love for you? Are you in that situation currently? We really do accept what we think we deserve and I wanted to start the day by telling you that you are lovable. You are worthy of great things, a kind loving partner, a happy healthy lifestyle, and a loving relationship with yourself. by guadalupe

I think we often take our spouse for granted. Most of the time, it’s unintentional. We forget about all of their amazing qualities and things they do to help us out. But this can be dangerous for a marriage. No one wants to feel unappreciated. None of us want to make our spouse feel unimportant. In order to appreciate your spouse, you have to tell them with your words and show by your actions that you really do love and appreciate who they are. by tania

creaturesoflight: You, who are so beautiful, why do you sit alone, dreaming the wandering stars? Because alone is when we see and hear and feel for ourselves. Because alone is where time ends, and the universe begins, where the mind touches wonderment and prods us awake, where we sit in silence and pray for nothing but the words to make the silence audible. by cara

Self care is imperative to me....“Think about how we can best support the most exhausted version of ourselves – and not count on an ideal version of ourselves to show up and save the day.” Kelly McGonigal writes in The Willpower Instinct I've thought about that quite often, so I created the SoulSpace Series for my fellow healing arts practitioners out there. by lynette
