Life has a way of gut punching you when you least expect it.
I’ve had the air knocked out of me for the last few weeks and to be completely honest, I’m a better person because of it. I won’t share any specific topics of my sucker punches, just know the hits were low and hard. Had it not been for my ability to admit defeat and vow to rebuild, I would probably not be writing this right now.
Things are always going to happen that hurt us mentally, physically or emotionally, but the way we respond to the hurt is what separates the cubs from the lions. I, my friend, am a lion…a LIONESS to be more accurate. I am so glad I have a self care routine in place…and a few valued friends that were there for me in my time of craziness.
My encouragement for you today, is to take care of yourself, not just physically but mentally and emotionally as well. Do things that self comfort, like bubble baths and relaxing but do the hard stuff too. Know your limits, and set boundaries, and make them perfectly clear so no one and nothing crosses them. Say no when you need to..and mean it! Most importantly….be completely confident in knowing that you are worthy and you deserve good in your life. Change is tough…but so are you.
