What if I just write?
How about if I write on this blank page and tell you what's been going on?
I'd like to tell you that this week has been eye-opening...
My insides have been so tightly wound up and I didn't even know it.
I've been putting myself down this week.
But something great happened last night.
Yoga was finishing up.
The instructor asked us to close our eyes and to just breathe.
Touch our eyes,
touch our mouths,
touch our hearts,
and tell ourselves that we are beautiful just the way we are.
Tears started rolling down my cheeks.
I felt a rush of love come through me...an emotional release that I desperately needed.
It was good.
I felt like I was breathing...correctly.
Making sure every tear that ran down my cheek was worth something.
I feel good.
I have my coffee next to me...I'm writing on my blog...I feel beautiful today...My kids gave me extra hugs and kisses this morning...My husband looked at me and smiled, that loving smile, that smile that says, "she's mine."
All is good in my world.
How are you?
Sometimes you just need to ask yourself that. You need to let yourself go to that place where you don't want to. Sometimes you need a good cry. And sometimes you are the only one who can say,
"You can do this."
Because, ultimately, at the end of the day, we really only listen to that voice in our head.
How about making sure that voice is positive and loving?
Have a blessed and happy Friday.
Would you like another cup of coffee?
Go see Alissa at Rags to Stitches and everyone else linking up for a "coffee date".
