Protect Your Well Being
I've had the pleasure of learning how to protect my well being under any circumstance this week, and because there was an obstacle in my face continuously regarding relationships, finances and family, I really had no choice. I had to find a way to really go deep and go there in the most loving way I could find at any given moment. It definitely has been a challenge, but I feel for the first time in a long time, I know that I'm able to be full of joy and ease no matter what it looks like on the outside. Yes, some moments can be challenging and be downright sucky, but I've realized that I can make it challenging to the point of despair and frustration or I can just acknowledge that it'll be over soon and be better. I have also learned that I can move a better feeling into a really fantastic feeling very quickly, no matter what. No matter what cannot be emphasized enough.
We all have crap we have to face on occasion. There are times when our ego / shadow / logical mind (whatever you choose to call it) berates us, tells us we are not worthy, says we should just give up, allows feelings of guilt or shame or regret to permeate. Those feelings are inaccurate. Underneath all of that BS that keeps us small and scared or angry and self-righteous, we are just forms of beauty and love. We all are that. Every single one of us. Beauty and love. We forget when faced with situations that throw us off track. During these times, you have to find a way to remember who you are and to allow for the time to take extra care of yourself. Take a nap. Hide out. Go for a scenic drive. Listen to something inspiring. Write. Watch something funny. Pet your cats. Play with your dogs. Meditate. Do whatever it is that makes you feel better, and do it as much as you can. Only have conversations when you feel good. Take the best care of yourself and keep looking for the better feeling always. If you focus on a problem for too long, you can just keep spiraling into a problem. Act only from a place of feeling better. Be happy no matter what. Your well-being will thank you. Your ego may disagree, but your ego will get over it.
