HELLO. I am (almost) done with school! One more paper to submit today by 1:30 pm. Then freedom and onto bigger things next semester, like studying abroad! Just wanted to pop in today to share some important reminders with you to keep you on track with your self-love journey.
1.for when you’re feeling stuck and down…
it’s just how life works you know? one moment you’re on the ground crying, the next you’re at a beach moving with the sound of the waves, a cold drink in your hand and a fresh watermelon by your side. these moments- the crying on the floor at 3 am moments. the staying in bed until 2 pm curled in a ball because the world is crumbling and you are losing any bit of stability you had left. all of these moments matter. but somehow we are able to pick ourselves out of that bed and open our curtains when the light seemed so foreign to us. we are able to make it to that beach and drink that drink and savor every bit of that watermelon. it’s the beauty of life. the beauty of strength.
2. for when you’re struggling to love your body…
women: you do not have to be smaller. you do not have to look liker her. you do not have to do crunches until you get rug burn on your neck and you do not have to rip yourself apart every time you look in the mirror. you do not need to be embarrassed if your hips are “big.” let those hips move freely my friend and take up as much damn space as needed.
3. for when you feel stunted with your growth…
“You’ll be different. You’ll be different from the self that you were. You’re constantly growing.”
4. for when you’re feeling overwhelmed…
get grounded. when your sitting or standing, actually feel how your grounded into the earth. you are here on this planet, you are grounded and strong.
5. for when things seem complicated…
“in thinking, keep to the simple. in conflict, be fair and generous. in governing, don’t try to control. in work, do what you enjoy. in family life, be completely present.” -Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
Wishing you all a happy Wednesday. <3 xoxo
