I want to share with all of you one thing that helps my spirit . Being a survivor of abuse, of all types, sometimes I get stuck in my head. You know how that is , I am sure.
I have found that sitting by or on water helps calm my mind. I love the way the sound of the water is so soothing. My mind will stop racing and I can focus on what truly matters !
Often times I will find myself questioning my past. What did I do wrong?, what could I have done differently?, why did all this happen?? Well one because I was there in that place at that time. Then it just became what I expected from others. I would drink or get high to numb myself from my reality.
This kept me in a cycle of abuse numbness and hating myself. I am the one that needed to survive and in order to do that I had to break this cycle! So first I stopped using drugs. I moved away.
I realized that all of my health needs were connected. Mind, body, and spirit. So I started getting healthy in all 3 areas. Eating better , going for long walks, and meditating. Being near water helped slow my mind and center my thoughts.
A lot of times just surviving what we have in our thoughts is the hardest part of the day. Be aware of what you tell yourself! You are here for a purpose, you are uniquely you! And YOU ARE WORTHY! Every season of our lives teaches us something! Pay attention to lessons along your path!
Love and Light
