I ask you to pause and think about this statement: The weight of responsibility that we place on ourselves and the forgiveness we don’t give. We all fumble at times in our lives. We've had words that flew out of our mouths under duress because we've exhausted ourselves. We've experienced anger, impatience, fear - all big emotions that can overwhelm our sanity - it happens to all of us. Those words/thoughts can be directed toward others as well as us.
In the mix of overwhelm that can happen in our lives, from the usual to-dos to the unexpected, are you taking time to stop? To B-R-E-A-T-H-E? Be honest with yourself. We all think we can handle a lot, and at times we have to. Try changing up the usual protocol you have done into an energetic shift. Energy is powerful stuff - what you put in you get back multiplied abundantly. Be aware of the negative you send out (or in) because it is likely to produce more.
Self-care can be tough. We understand that your time is precious, and finding moments to yourself can be few and far between.
For many people, the shock, change, and consequences of remaining at home during this “stay in place” quarantine period is hard to deal with.
Finding time to create space, and a little bit of quiet and calm can and will make a difference for you. Not only for your mental health but your physical health as well.
Is it possible that the promise of a cup of coffee can get you through the day? For me, it did and sometimes still does.
I have a thought, and in a blink, something else comes up, and I race to find the idea I had because it disappeared so quickly.
In the life of a family caregiver your days may go by like minutes.
Whether it is the simplicity of checking your emails on your phone, taking photo’s or reading posts on Facebook, it seems as though we have our faces glued to a small device that takes up far too much too in our lives.
