I dread living in the past or thinking of the past as it often brings me to tears. This is always the moment that I realize I still have a lot of healing to do and that is okay.
Let me state I have actually done a lot of work on myself through therapy, meditation, yoga, essential oils and so forth… it all works together and YES there will be those days or months or years that you just get caught in that cycle of trauma. That is okay, as our tool box of strategies will pull you out of that dark hole. Once you believe in yourself and love YOU that gets you through those dark moments.
This is the song and dance we do from time to time and what helps me get through it is the confidence in myself and my positive self talk.
During these moments: I step outside in my bare feet and step on the cold floor and feel all the sensations. I then affirm the love I have to be alive, to see the blue skys, to hear the sounds of the birds… this grounds me. In this moment I am able to shift my thoughts to positivity and use my strategies to get me out of this gloomy feeling.
I MYSELF have many disappointments in all areas, my own deep traumas but I know they do not define me but are my journey and success to overcoming those moments and individuals!
We live in a place where there are triggers everywhere, so acknowledging those feelings as I have done today, deal with those feelings and move along for the day.
Today I decided to share within the moment, of my sadness and how I work it through without much of the details, which I will share with you… along the way of our journey together.
My line of work was no mistake for me and I made an oath to aways do this work through love and not through my own experiences, as no one situation is the same. We may connect through a similar event but the strategy and feelings will be different.
Though I have my studies, my own struggle through this life journey is what helped me connect genuinely and try to understand the walks of others. It has made me be able to always check my own emotions surfacing when working with young people and to listen to their stories.
Never underestimate your knowledge, wisdom and impact you have of those that cross your path. A caring gesture truly goes a long way.
- The earth was my grounding, positive affirmations and meditation music.
- A show of the jungle and connecting to the sounds of the animal kingdom helped me smile and know it will be a better day tomorrow.
- Reading blogs of others on WordPress helped me connect with others with similar stories.
- A favourite cup of coffee, some banana bread and alone time.
- I placed all my diffusers on with lavender, 🍋, 🍊, and bergamot.
I hope this finds someone having a sad day and that these strategies may help you through today!
