“caring for your inner child has a powerful and surprisingly quick result: do it and the child heals.” ~ martha beck
one of the many things i do is the play doh styling for play doh commercials. diffusing this while i work on those jobs is so helpful to me. i was talking to someone the other day who uses it as perfume. it’s a beautiful scent that includes orange, tangerine, ylang ylang, sandalwood, jasmine, & neroli. not bad.
if i’m being completely honest, i could probably stand to use this oil more often than i do as i don’t feel much of a connection to my own inner child. i’ve always been the person who was more serious than childish - even from a young age. part of me feels a bit nervous opening that door as i truly don’t know what’s behind it. but i think i’ll start using it more often & see what comes of it.
Having a "positive mindset" can only do so much. it unfortunately doesn't change some of the destructive patterns that keep resurfacing at different stages of our life. .
until we are willing to face the very things we try so hard to never revisit is when we will allow true healing to occur... and you will know when true healing has happened when peace becomes a natural occurring state. 💜💜💜💜
"the only thing that is constant is change."
change can be intimidating, but it can also be hugely exciting. the difference is our approach and attitudes to the change that occurs. i like to remind myself of the serenity prayer as much as often. which essentially boils down to accepting that there will be things we cannot change, that's inevitable, but to also have the courage to get out there and change the things that are in our capabilities.
hope everyone has a power weekend 👊💯
Love yourself now. ✨
i’ve been working extra hard at loving myself over the past four months! since my foot injury, since i had to back off working out hard, since my daily caloric burn was cut in half or more, since my daily endorphin level was slashed... in the past road bumps like this would have sent me into depression and give up mode. 😢
maybe i’ve finally realized that health, self love and self acceptance are more important than looking a certain way. 🙌 that moving my body in gentler ways with yoga can be just as mentally and emotionally beneficial than jumping and running! 🙏
i’m so grateful for the at-home yoga programs i have and my fitness community. we are learning and growing as people, not just working for a six pack! the mental benefits of exercise, no matter what level, are real. you can love yourself where you are at and work out for well being!! the physical results are a bonus. ✌️
i’m leading a new online fitness accountability group starting in january with at-home programs for all fitness levels. message or comment that you are interested and i’ll send you the details! 💕
