I am enjoying my new found freedom in stepping back and slowing down! I do not like when my body is screaming at me to pay attention to it and give it my undivided attention. I am tuning in and finally listening to my body and its needs. I am taking care of myself and it feels good!
I am learning that a Strong No is Better than a Weak Yes! I am done being pressured when it comes to doing things that I really do no want to do. I really need to focus on what I want to do and what truly matters to me when it comes to prioritizing my time. I know I cannot be and do it all!
I am discovering that I have certain habits that stress me out and waste my time! Why would I ADD stress to my crazy life? I am trying to put the perfectionist, over achiever, people pleaser, everything in its place person on the down low. I need to enjoy the process and take it one moment at a time. A little less doing and a little more being!
I am working on living a healthier lifestyle! I am learning more about taking charge of my self care and being my own health advocate when it comes to what my whole being needs. I am making better food choices, maintaining my weight and getting my 7 to 9 hours of sleep. I do not want to take my health for granted and truly appreciate what my whole being can do for me!
My health and wellness assists me in being an active player in my life! I know for dang sure STRESS will shorten my life if I let it get to me day in and day out. I need to be doing more of what makes me happy, gives me satisfaction and fills me up. My time and the freedom to do what I want is valuable to me in living a full life!
I am finding a “new strong” by tapping into my inner strengths! I am learning to be patient and not so reactive. I am learning to be calm and not so defensive. I am learning to release and let go by experiencing my emotions, feelings, and thoughts. I am rediscovering my curiosity by being in the present moment!
I am so focused on moving on to the next thing that I miss what is happening throughout the process! That is what really matters the most at times too. I need to enjoy the life I do have by living the life I want. I want to appreciate what life has to offer me and not miss a minute of it!
