A beautiful friend, who has also shared in her own personal development journey shared a quote the other morning that truly touched my heart.
I love how the universe brings us words, things and people into our life when they have the most meaning for us. Just the other night I was reflecting on how our new weekly morning routine was having a very positive shift in my life and our entire family. For years Ive been a night hawk, always used that as my crutch even when I woke in the morning dragging my butt, all of us literally waking with enough time to get out the door in a rush! Taking back that has literally given us power… BUT… For me to make this shift in my life – resulting in a shift in our family life required ME to do the work for ME.
Although this quote specifically speaks of women healing ourselves and the other women in our lives it goes much deeper than that! The men in our life of all ages also begin to feel the healing, as they should.
When a woman puts her self care first, it’s a ripple effect in the family that is like waves in the water and will gradually flow out beyond her family and to her extended family, friends and community. Keep it positive. Keep it real. Be truthful with yourself. If you need help – get it – none of us are invincible nor are we expected to be. Be vulnerable, open up and take a step back from controlling what you think the outcome should be. Read and expand your mind. Speak positively about the people in your life. Be respectful. Be an example to your children of how people should be treated. Be understanding and realize we are all a work in progress. Most of all live and love with compassion. Be kind for everyone you meet is on their own journey and your’s or their’s is no more important than the other. We are all here to make a difference and sometimes it’s the people who feel like they are pushing away who need love the most 💖!
