HEALING SERIES: FINALE-LET IT GO AND MOVE ON

HEALING SERIES: FINALE-LET IT GO AND MOVE ON

You have removed the mask, forgave yourself and others, took the necessary time and space to clear your mind and spirit, hit the pause button and showed yourself some tender loving care…So now what?

It’s time to move forward; whole, healed and complete, into a new chapter in our lives. Taking the lessons and leaving the baggage, we let it all go.  All of the emotional and mental work is void if we choose to hold on to the negative, painful and hurtful things, events and circumstances that happen in our lives.  Healing requires us to release it all with the knowledge and confidence that we are now wiser and well equipped for the next set of life’s challenges.  Whether it is health, diet and fitness challenges, financial challenges, a painful childhood, or the loss of a relationship, pain does not last forever unless we give it a home in our spirit.  You can and should end this chapter of your life and start a new one in your life’s story.

HEALING SERIES: PT 5-IT'S ALL ABOUT ME

When healing from within, it is wonderful to have a village to lean on during these times.  Family and friends are instrumental in lifting you up and encouraging you through hard times but the responsibility of healing is yours.  It is up to us to take responsibility for our own emotional and mental well-being.  Family and friends are wonderful but they can’t heal for you. Healing is a choice that we have to make daily.  Sometimes, you have to be selfish.  I don’t mean selfish in a negative way either.  When I speak of being selfish, I mean, there are times when you have to make yourself a priority and be unapologetic about it.  That doesn’t give you the right to be hurtful, mean-spirited or isolated either.  What this means is that you recognize that things aren’t ok with you right now.

HEALING SERIES: PT 4-HIT THE PAUSE BUTTON-LESSONS IN SELF CARE

Women have to be everything to everyone. Nurturers by nature, our roles can be exhausting and draining.    We are the ones who rarely take time to give to ourselves.   Last year, I had to learn a hard lesson in making time for “self-care”.  I had to give myself permission to take the necessary time and space to replenish and restore everything I give away on a daily basis.  As a busy, working mom, I realized that in order to make sure I made self-care a part of my day, I had to schedule it.
