I had the pleasure of being in Mexico during the week of Birthday last week and had a lot of down time to do some reflection and creative work.
Here are a few things I though of during my trip that I wanted to share with you.
1. 🙏🏽 Gratitude Isn't Just an Attitude
Yes, we can give gratitude verbally, written or in thought but having the attitude is not enough. Yes having the mental state of gratitude is very important however it doesn't penetrate us at the soul level. Its the difference between knowing and actually doing. Knowledge will only take you so far. We can claim to "know something" but when it comes to implementing it into our lives, it shows up in a different way. It's about embodiment. When you are embodying gratitude it reverberates through you to your core.
2. Stop Worrying 😩😳😱
This cliche response can be annoying I know but give me a minute to explain. I had a total light bulb moment when I was in Mexico, I mean the palm to forehead type. I will go a little more into this story at some other time so to keep it short I will say bluntly I have always struggled with weight and weight-loss. It has been an object of my concern for a long time and growing up with a mother that was obese I didn't realize how much I actually took on that narrative. Because I have been "worried" about weight for so long, it didn't dawn on me that the more I "worried" about it, the more weight concern and anxiety I was inviting into my life. By not focusing on the negative fear aspect of weight I can liberate myself slowly from old narratives that keep me stuck.
3. Stop Doing It Alone 👩🏻🤝👩🏼
if you have been in my community for a while you know I am a big supporter of this concept. Whatever you are going through RIGHT NOW, someone you know has been through it too. That's why it's imperative to seek help. As women we have not been socialized to do this and believe often we can "do it alone" or "we can do it better if we do it by ourselves" Whether is leaning on a friend, family member, coach, therapist or teacher, SISTERHOOD is available to you at your fingertips at all times! Tap into it!
I hope these 3 concepts are helpful to you. I would love to hear from you if anything speaks to you at [email protected]
