Becoming More Self Aware
I have been dealing with excess pressure, tension and stress over the the last year! I never thought to look at myself as the culprit, but I quickly learned that I was and should not have been all that amazed as to what I was doing to myself. I decided to become more self aware in order to clear my mind of the clutter and clean my emotional house! I lost that reliance of self by sabatoging my own self as well as my health and well being. Think about that, can you imagine that happening!
I now know why I was edgy and anxious and certainly not myself! I was either holding myself stuck in the past or fast forwarding to the what is next, what is in my future. I was not even in the present! I knew I needed to STOP the crazyness and busyness. I needed to find my way back to being in the present moment again!
I very much needed to take responsibility of my own state of mind and my own state of being and not let it fall into the wrong hands ever again! I had to find reliance in my self, be proactive with my whole being and believe and trust in myself. I really needed to start taking care of myself from the inside out as well as stay active and engaged. I needed to make myself priority number 1!
I discovered in becoming more self aware I was able to be more open! To the possibilities and opportunities. To embracing and accepting change. To being able to cope better when things do not go my way. To keeping it simple. To learning, growing and gaining. To be one with myself and find the quiet. To relax, recharge, and reenergize. So many things to be open to when you are creating the life you want!

I am learning to slow down, be in the present moment and really listen to myself and my needs! I am starting and starting small and will continue to take baby steps every day.
