TWE NO.34 // Fall in love with healing yourself

TWE NO.34 // Fall in love with healing yourself

My past two weeks had been very intense and turbulent. I am currently doing a certification program which keeps me super busy, so therefore I had no time to blog and design, as I already told you before. Yesterday I came back home and even though I am about to head out in a bit I decided to make some free time to get back to designing and writing. 

My past two weeks were pretty cool, don't get me wrong, but also they were intense and turbulent and I feel very exhausted now. I only had one day off in between, it was hot, days were long, I did not get as much sleep as I need and when my sleep pattern suffers the next thing that suffers is my appetite so in consequence I also did not eat enough and now I just feel kinda shot.

So here is a friendly reminder (to myself and everyone else who needs this reminder from time to time) to fall in love with healing yourself. I try to see it as an amazing journey and not as a burden.  Now I really believe that you have so much power to heal yourself as long as you are willing to do the inner work and clearly say yes to living a happier, healthier life from the moment on you decide to improve yourself and your situation dramatically. 

I honestly admit it, self-love, self-care and self-respect were factors in my life that I completely ignored and where I really struggled most - needless to say that everything in life gets pretty miserable when you fail in all of the things I just mentioned before. How should you set boundaries and treat people and situations to treat you well when you are the person who can't even make it to treat yourself with love, care and respect. So we see, it is clearly problematic. I really improved a lot here but of course like it is with old unhealthy patterns, sometimes you still fall back. But it is ok, it is completely ok to fall back once in a while as long as you get back on track so healthy patterns that actually nurture your body and soul can manifest. 

I just read this quote 'fall in love with healing yourself' and thought that it is a fantastic affirmation to remember every day. It also implies to fall in love with yourself in general which is a wonderful thing to remember because as we all know, so many people struggle here. So we take it even one step further if we say that we want to fall in love with healing ourself. So we forgive each other for all the wrongs we did, we fall in love with ourselves every day from now on and while doing this we also work on healing ourselves from the past experiences that shaped the person we are today. Forgiveness is the key in order to heal, to forgive ourselves and others. Without forgiveness healing is not possible. 

I have a few days off now and at this time I want to focus on decluttering, cleaning, doing the emotional work of clearing and forgiving, making sure I get lots of sleep and food and then hopefully I feel more energetic again in a few days so I can complete my certification program and then focus on all my upcoming projects again. 

I think there is no one fits all approach to healing yourself. It is different for each one of us. My approach might be different from your approach, I just really think that reflecting, decluttering, cleaning and forgiving really do wonders in order to heal yourself. I am not brainstorming strategies in this post, I am just writing down my thoughts about it and what works for me but I would suggest that you figure out a way that works for you if you want to join this journey as well. 

Have a wonderful sunday, lovely you <3
