Whoa, it’s been a long time….
Over Easter, I attended a christening. It was so beautiful and it was the first time the Ben’s sister said I was her baby’s aunt. As you can imagine, I was over the moon.
On Good Friday, I went to the doctors because I have a lump in the middle of my chest. Turns out that it may be a hernia from exercising too much and too hard. I have to have an ultrasound this Friday to be sure it is a hernia and nothing too serious.
Today was a good day for me as I got a phone call from the preschool and they want me to go through to the next stage of recruitment, could have my dream job soon, I also went to see a weight loss lady today just too get extra help with my diet and my measurements (which I have been doing wrong).
The purpose of today’s blog however, was not to catch up on what’s been, or rather what hasn’t been, happening in my life but to officially start my Self Love- Be Kind to Yourself journey. I’ve been inspired to do this for a while now because of my new getting healthy awareness and because I have been dreaming big and setting goals for myself for a super long time. I mean, for a long time I’ve set them but never reached them or for some reason or another didn’t have the confidence to even start them.
I do consider myself a spiritual person and I am heavily drawn to spiritual stuff i.e. tarot cards, pendulums etc. and in one of my previous blogs, I mention going to a Mind, Body and Soul expo where I got a wax reading done. To me it was an amazing experience and I would love to do it again. Anyway, while I was getting this amazing and accurate reading done, the guy mentioned that the Angels are telling me to believe in myself more, I should listen to myself way more and I should stop doubting myself. The guy recommended that I create a Vision board of what I desire, wish for and goals for myself so that I can tune into what the Angels are trying to tell me about loving, accepting and being kind to myself.
So I did, I created a Vision board. It doesn’t look like much as it is both my first and spontaneous Vision board but in saying that, I have an idea of what I need to make a better one and what kinds of things I am actually wanting in life for the next Vision board I make.
Today I thought a about the love I have for myself and all the things I deny myself because of fear. Fear I won’t succeed. Fear of what others might say. Fear of not being good enough etc.
I remembered what one of my physics said to me once:
I realised that without knowing it, I’ve been holding myself back from the things that make me happy. The things I want to do but I feel like I’m not good enough. So I’ve decided do to take my Reinventing Myself idea and mix it in with my Self Love – Be Kind to Yourself journey. I took my white board and wrote down some routines I have and then I jotted down some words. These words are there to remind me every morning when I wake up that I am beautiful, strong and unique. They will remind me of what I love out of life and the things I want out of life (ties in with my Vision board). On top of that I have written the F.E.A.R anodote and a quote that I am going to change every week. The quote I have started with today is “Change your thoughts and you change your world”. I thought that was a great quote by Norman Vincent Peale to start with for this week.
I am also keeping a Self Love book (as you can see) where I write down my personal goals for my health and success etc.
This will be an on going things as everyday I learn more about myself. I accept myself more. Most importantly, I learn to love myself more. By next year (or when I make more Vision boards etc.) I’ll have a better idea of how to do them better.
Until next time xx
