Self Care, Spirituality

The Art of Self-Care

Years ago I was introduced to a book that focused on one main point…love. Possessing gratitude and love for moments in your past and present opens you up to receiving more wonderful moments and more love. You are guided to turn away from negative or bad feelings and situations by simply not giving them any attention, thus harnessing the true power within. Sounds great, right? But is it easier said than done?

I’ve found myself, of late, struggling with the circumstances of life that I have not planned. Naturally, I am a person who wants to know the source of situations…Why did this happen? When did this start? How could it have been avoided? Where did it go wrong? Questions, questions and more questions. That’s the hardest part…not having the answers.

I came to realize that immersions in the what, why, where and how don’t really help the situation. In fact, they can drain you leaving you tired, sad and lost. Nothing changes with worry, obsession in thought of what could have or should have been. Instead, as hard as it can be, focusing on the gift in all situations is a way to see the light through the darkness.

Self-Care can mean many things. As a beauty lover, it means a steam bath, a luxurious facial mask or perhaps a cup of chamomile tea. But taking care of your mind is even more important. Reading a good book, journaling with gratitude, spending time in nature and praying help getting the mind and soul in alignment and preparedness for what is to come – a bright future.

A bright future comes if we believe it will come. “Raising our frequency” as it suggests allows you to receive all the good that is coming your way. To receive, you must believe. Because at the end of the day, it’s all mental. 100% of it. If you believe you can, you will.

Here’s to believing you can. Here’s to the best…that is yet to come.
