I felt inspired to share my heart today, and in a video ! A beautiful friend reached out to me about my own journey and curious if I could share my own personal journey with a friend of her’s who also has PCOS. Of course I said yes and that’s when I thought, its time to do an updated video and apparently my heart had a lot to say 😉 💗
There once was a time in my life I was ashamed of my body, my health and it was a container that held onto a lot of anger and resentment. Thankfully I was able to rise up, it may have taken me a lot of years to get to this point, and it will always be a work in progress, its 100% worth it.
To know that I am able to listen to my heart and soul, to allow myself to be my true me, to be ok at putting myself out there, at times, learning to care less of what others think. The truth of the matter is, each of us as an individual, is the only person who can truly shift our own life. I know this because Ive lived it, and like I mention in the video, we have all been through shit, lord knows that, some of us need more life lessons than others, a little bit more growth, sometimes its to grab our attention in a pretty significant way.
I am thankful for my journey, I am thankful for the people who have come, gone and stayed in my life. I am grateful for the life lessons – all of them good, bad and otherwise have got me to where I am today and for that, thank you. As much as I have thought about “going back and changing….” whatever – I wouldn’t be who I am today, if that happened. I am who I am today because of my life journey. Perhaps its because I have been known to be a stubborn firey red head, yes that has been true, I prefer to think of it as PASSION ON FIRE! 🔥
Energy truly is everything. Whether you believe it or not. Our physical, emotional and energy health is all intertwined and I believe wholeheartedly its this combination which has helped me achieve my current state of health.
- Deal with the shit in your life. Whatever that may be. If you are physically sick all the time – aches, pains, cold, flu, whatever else… what are you ignoring emotionally or what are you hiding from yourself or others that needs to surface. This can be a BIG one for people. I know it was for me. I was freaking ignorant about my health and body.
- Clean up your life. In more ways than one. The products you use in your home, on your body, the food you eat, the people you associate with. I am the type of person who gives people the benefit of the doubt, until they have wronged me, then my fiery passion lights up.
- Make yourself the top priority. Even if you have kids. For me tonight, that meant using my 2 hours of complete alone time to read and write. Something that frees and lights my soul up. When the kids were younger, mommy would give herself a “time out” – when my husband would be home of course when they were younger, but even when they were old enough to get it, they both now appreciate alone time to decompress.
- Do what works for you! Every one of us is different, unique and beautiful. No one’s journey is exactly the same as anyone else’s, although my journey may seem similar to someone else, it wont be the exact same. Baby steps, welcome change with open arms and trust in divine timing.
I truly am happy to help anyone who might be on a similar journey or who may have questions about how I am supporting myself, that is what inspired my video and even listening back to it, I truly spoke from my heart. Some things people may feel are too much information – this is my story and honestly, I truly believe the more people who actually step up and tell their story, normalize what many of us have felt like, it may help someone like me who at a point in my life thought my body was against me, hated myself and questioned “why me” all the freaking time. Yes I have health issues, the last thing I want to do is hide them, especially from my children and those I love and am related to, because if I do, there is a good chance my kids may have their own health challenges as well.
💫 When you shine a light on the darkness, the darkness begins to fade.💫
I truly did start out thinking I was going to make a quick video, and then my heart and soul completely took over. Its all good, because I believe there was a purpose in sharing, someone out there needs to hear these words, even if simply for encouragement. It felt really good in my heart. Ive mentioned my health challenges many times, but most of those times Ive held on tight to my emotions. My journey to become a mom is one that will always hold strong emotions for me, to remind myself of how dreams can come true and that these two children of mine truly are gifts from god who I love more than anything. But, as Ive learned, you must always always love yourself entirely first. Which I can now, without a doubt, say I do. No one is perfect and that is what is beautiful about life, its a journey, make it yours! ✌
