Getting to the Heart of the Matter

Relationships MATTER!

I recently read an article and it addressed relationship care. I thought to myself what is relationship care. Then I started thinking about how to connect during a pandemic. How technology connects us as well as can disconnect us. Really be with each other when face-to-face as well as virtually!

Think about the time you take to work, exercise, etc. Then think about the time you take with your greatest someones. Is there a good balance or could use a re-balance. 

That meaningful and nurturing time with your greatest someones matters! I really believe it helps with wholeness and balance. It helps with your health and wellness too!

I remember growing up with my group of girls and we could not get enough time together. We spent all day together in school and for hours by phone in the evenings. If we could get together on the weekends for shopping or a movie we made it happen!

As an adult I have those few close relationships where you pick up right where you left off even if it has been days, weeks or months. Also, I tend to nourish and nurture those relationships that are healthy and positive. I really try to not take those relationships for granted either. Those relationships are precious, matter and are a true gift!

With your relationships you may see an improvement in the quality of your life as well as your health and wellness! Especially in communicating and engaging. In connecting and deepening those relationships. Making the time to continue to build, grow and expand those relationships!

That nurturing of our relationships helps us nourish ourselves and our well being as well as others and their well being! It is another form of self care. It can be enriching and boosting to your whole being!

We are humans that crave connection and engagement. We are humans that want to belong to something other than ourselves. We are social beings living in a tech world.

There is nothing better than making time to spend quality time with family and friends! You do not need to spend monies either. The simplest things are totally satisfying and make your day better. That is the love and support we all crave! 

  • Gathering and sharing a meal.
  • Catching up, sharing and laughing.
  • Caring and supporting by being there, thinking about them, etc.
  • CELEBRATING!!!

That landscape has changed a bit with the pandemic. However, a lot of people are getting creative with the virtual and making time to gather and share! 

We all do our best to live well! To be kind and generous. To be compassionate and care. To just be genuine and be who we are!

Your Self Love and How You Feel About Yourself

Do you practice self love?

I do and my whole being likes a good pep talk! Tuning in to how your whole being feels. From your mental awareness to your mood to your body language. Your breathing and posture can tell you a lot about your current state of being too! 

Do you know how amazing of a being you truly are! You have everything you need from within to handle life’s moments and life’s adventures, from the happiest to the most challenging. How you discover that is by listening to the inner you!

  • Your beliefs, values and virtues.
  • Your respect and trust.
  • Your intuition and wisdom.
  • Your gifts and talents.
  • Your gratitude and appreciation.

Remember to reflect on and focus in on nourishing and nurturing your whole being! How to feel better in your whole, well being. How to be the best you can be. Most of all love you for you!

Remember to learn and try new things! Be present to what you are truly experiencing. Tune into your mindful awareness and really focus in, especially on the here and now. Tap into that passion and empowerment as well as that motivation and drive. Practice and learn each and every day!

Sometimes I feel like I need to speed up and sometimes I feel like I need to slow down! I find I make better decisions and choices in slowing down. To think and to process. To quiet the noise to gain clarity. To become more aware and pay attention to what I need!

Think about pleasing yourself as well as forgiving yourself! Find that confidence to boost yourself and make your whole being feel its best. Find that trust to build yourself and engage your instincts. Discover your whys in your needs and do it for you!

Think about that internal validation from yourself versus the external validation from others! Own your decisions. Validate. Own your feelings and emotions. Empowerment. Own your passions and dreams. Owe it to yourself to be the true, real person that you are!

Remember to communicate and connect with yourself! To build. To cultivate. To challenge. To just be and show up for YOU!

Remember to Pause, Breathe Deep and Really Listen to What Your Whole Being Needs! Tune Into Your Self-Talk and Truly Listen!
