My Holiday of Self Love
Welcome to my first ever newsletter! It has taken me ages to get this going because I just didn't know what to write...
Well I've gotten over that, I'm following my intuition and have asked my Guides for some guidance – shocker I know ;) – They told me to write from my heart. Sounded like good advice, so I went with it.
To me writing from my heart means not sugar coating things, not putting on appearances, but tellings things as they really are. For me the holidays are a tough time and I know they are for many others. I am truly grateful to have my loving family to spend the holidays with, but for some reason, it feels like that is not enough. I'm not sure if it has something to do with all that advertising – the constant pressure to buy all those things that I really don't need. Or the hectic schedule with so many places we need to be. But for me as a highly sensitive and empathic person, I find all of it extremely overwhelming. The hustle, the bustle, the rush to get everything done, to buy things, to see as much of my distant family as possible;I seem to get wrapped up in all of it, even when I try my hardest not to.
Well this year I have decided to give myself the greatest gift I can imagine. This holiday season is not going to be about my parents, or my husband, or even my kids. I'm giving myself the gift of staying true to myself, to what I need, to what feels right for me at this time. I'm giving myself a free pass from pleasing others, from keeping up with The Joneses, from winning the best mom of the year award.
Now I know that some of you may find this selfish and might not understand and that is totally okay. I probably would have felt that same way a few years ago. But that's the beauty of this gift to myself – I'm listening to my body, to my intuition, to my guides and doing what is right for ME. And for me, that is a major step on my journey to self love. What is your body, your intuition, your guides trying to tell YOU? What is your next step on your journey to self love? If you’re not sure and want help trying to figure that out, please reach out a book a session with me. Truly, I am here to help you!
