Breaking old habits and patterns isn’t easy. Life can throw stuff at you, you just can’t control and you might feel lost, even feel out of control. Giving in to darkness, could however become to comfortable.
I answered this to Katherin’s question ‘How do you love yourSELF ?’
Pay attention to your body, for instance, if you worry about something or when you find yourself in a situation you’re a not sure is good for you: your body knows.
NOBODY is perfect and daring to be vulnerable and strong enough to live by YOUR truth, will not always be easy… I learned (and sometimes the hard way) this is a necessity. I also learned; it is an ongoing process 😉
Accepting whatever it is you have to go through is either a part of you, or happening to you and is not defining you, is the first step.
In a book (not published yet but soon I hope, dear Gary ! ) I read the sentence:
‘Stop overwhelming and start living again.’
With his permission, I wanted to add it to this post, because it triggered something deep inside of me… I really thought I was living, but I realized… still not to my full potential. Well, never to late to do better, especially when you know better ( Maya Angelou, seen by KE Garland).
Reaching out, connect with someone you trust and ask for help… the next step forward towards new-found happiness. If I hadn’t start connecting in the past, those wonderful wise words might not have reached me 😉
Not ready to step outside your comfort-zone? These three equally important steps can help getting yourself out of the darkness into the light: eat healthy, exercise and sleep enough.
Take control of what you can control
