Ready, set… reset!

Sometimes I am so far off from myself that I know I just need to hit the reset button. It can be easy to think, “after the weekend I will” or “one more cheat meal and I will.” This thinking slows me down and spirals me into frustration. 

Sometimes, to be perfectly honest, I will wait til after that meal or after that weekend.

But I am trying to reset faster, with my end goal being not wavering AS much that I have to reset as often.

Why do I feel this way? Where did that come from?

I wonder if it’s beneficial to answer the question of why or where; would concluding something really make me feel better?

Maybe. But, maybe not.

Can we – I – just name what we are feeling with acceptance and see where it shows up in our bodies? And then take it from there?

How do you start your day?

I’ve tried to develop a little routine for myself – things to purposely do in the morning that I know will make me feel calm and together, before I start my day.

New year, new magic

Listen, I totally know we didn’t need a countdown at midnight to create a fresh new start, or to leave the heavy yucky things behind. I totally get that. My tribe, myself, YOU… we are all capable, badass, love warriors who can start over the second we decide to. We don’t need a man-made new year to do it. 
But hear me out…

God, in this moment

Let me share, that the word GOD isn’t one I’ve been particularly comfortable with. Like, at ALL. But I’ve been seeking, as I do. And recently, I’ve been interchanging my go to word the UNIVERSE, with the word GOD. But I haven’t spoken much of that word… just played with it here and there. Never really committing to it.
But this moment… the voice in my head or in my heart… “Can I find God in this?”

Another lesson in compassion: finding old journals and being okay with who I was

It’s only when I actually slow myself down from being sucked back into the past, into the hurt and into that fear based way of living, that I can pause long enough and realize I don’t have to hurt AS that old girl. I don’t have to GO back to those experiences. I can find the lesson and leave the experience….
