Sit with what is

Being still - sitting - gives us the opportunity to notice what is happening inside. When we observe the movements of our mind and follow our breath we begin to recognize ourselves as whole, strong beings, separate from racing thoughts and feelings that might otherwise consume us. Gifting ourselves this opportunity of stillness means we are less likely to experience even difficult feelings as unbearable or unmanageable. We can allow and observe rather than avoid our painful feelings. Sitting helps us see the feeling instead of be the feeling. We can watch stormy feelings without drowning in their intensity or losing connection with our larger sense of self. We can understand that we are hav

Leap for your dreams

Take the leap. You have already failed in a thousand big and small ways - you did not die. You learned, you adjusted, you kept growing forward. You found the courage to try again.

Get out your journal or a piece of paper Write it now, loud and proud. Claim your gifts as well as your flaws (know what you are working with and what you want to work around). Not sure what to write? Ask someone you trust who knows you well enough (and is emotionally healthy enough) to

It is okay to ask for help

“God helps those who help themselves” This common phrase is not actually a bible verse. It is intended as a way of encouraging initiative, but often functions as a way of shaming instead. The real truth…if you don’t speak up for yourself, who will? No one understands your needs better than you do. You are your own best advocate.

Having initiative does not mean you have to be completely self-reliant. Giving and receiving are a normal part of every human experience.
