You’ve got so much going on.
How do you get there, so that you are Feeling Loved? You’re so busy, I know it . You’re a mom, you’re a wife, maybe a dad, a husband, a career professional and so on. You have so much to do, especially for those important people in your life. But do you ever stop to give Yourself some special time. Time that you deserve and time that I know you need. I know that I can feel “selfish” at times when I want to have some quiet or me time. But being selfish, if it’s to help you and help your life, is not necessarily a bad thing. I know in my life, in the past, I have been told I was selfish for wanting and needing certain time for me. But it’s not true.
Go ahead. Find out what you need.
I enjoy very much spending time with those that I love, and that is especially true when it comes to my love partner. I have found that to feel loved I need to have that time and attention just for me. That is very important. I am proud that I have been able to realize that about myself. But it is such a bigger accomplishment for me to be able to Ask for it and know that I deserve it. I have a very special person in my life and he always tells me “You deserve it”. And you know what, he is helping me see that I do deserve it. That shows me how unselfish he is and how caring his love is for me.
Do you get what you want and need from your loved ones? From your partner? Maybe they don’t know what that may be. It’s okay to ask for it. It’s okay to want it.
This is what I do.
I have also found that being alone and having quiet time for me helps my week. It helps me feel rested and recharged for those that are important in my life. And my mood is much better as well. Here is what I do. I don’t do it everyday because I am on the go so much. But I do it once a week. After dropping off my girls at school in the morning, I am able to come home for a few hours. I make myself some hot and sweet coffee, I love Gevalia and maybe a small snack of honey roasted almonds like these, yum yum. And I take them to my bedroom where I sit on my comfortable bed in my quiet room. I do a meditation where I focus on my breath and clear my mind and completely relax.
Then after I am done I will have my snack and I will read. I love to read. It puts me in such a calm and positive space that replenishes my soul. Let me share with you what I am reading right now. It is The Tapping Solution for Manifesting Your Greatest Self by Nick Ortner. This book is so amazing so far. It is easy to read and I enjoy doing the tapping exercises, I am healing my Life!! I get so excited, haha :).
So that is my simple 30 minute relaxation me time that I do for myself. Sometimes I can do an hour and it is so wonderful for me and my day.
What can you do today for Yourself? So that you are Feeling Loved?
It can be anything really. You can take a 5 minute walk outside if the weather permits. What about reading or writing for 5, 10 minutes or more? You can draw if that is what you like. I enjoy drawing very much. I will sometimes work on my Mandalas, take a look at this. Even though I am just starting out, I really do like how relaxing and inspiring it is. I also find that putting on music helps me feel better. So I do that for me. And if it’s dancing that I am in the mood for, I will dance for a song or two. I really like 90’s and 2000’s music, the dancey once especially put me in a good mood.
Those are just a few of the many things that we can do, that you can do to make yourself a priority. It is okay to make sure you are happy first and taken care of first. Your life will be so much better for it.
Please share with me what works for you.
Sending you lots of good energy and love. 🙂
