Taking time to nurture.

Every now and again I think it's really important to stop and pay attention to our own needs. It's easy to get caught up caring for our kids and juggling work and family commitments and sometimes we can burn out because we are not making time for ourselves.

I am so fed up with the migraines that come in clusters month after month. Recently I have tried many natural therapies and ideas to see if I can lessen the frequency of my headaches. One of the therapists I have come across is a beautiful friend who is a kinesiologist. I don't pretend to know much about this therapy but many of my friends have spoken very highly of Bernadette so I decided to have a session with her. It felt good to take time out and focus on myself.

One of the things Bernadette encouraged me to do was to create a phrase that would sum-up what my goal was. She helped me to put together the words "I commit myself to myself" Luckily she wrote it down because by the time I'd driven home I'd forgotten it!

I decided to put the words onto an image and then use it on my phone as my wallpaper. Now everytime I reach for my phone on a busy day I get to see these words . They make me slow down a little and take a few deep breaths or a swig of water to stay hydrated.

Just little baby steps but hopefully in the right direction...

  1. This quote is so wonderful. It actually brought tears to my eyes. I need to make this happen. I need to accept the things I cannot change and be strong enough to change the things I can. Thank you for sharing this. : )

    Have a beautiful week, Gina!!! xoxo
