I’ll be the first to say, I’ve gotten off track.
Remember the notorious funk I talked about a few posts back? Well it decided to linger around a little longer than anticipated. I gave up on working out, on making plans both for now and my future, on positivity, and allowed myself to be consumed in a toxic environment. This isn’t me, but it is something that all of us face every once in a while.
Life is a little off balance.
That’s okay! Some friendships, jobs, relationships, and environments aren’t made to last, and while it may seem tough at first the reality is you’re growing into an even more beautiful version of yourself! Letting go isn’t always easy, but sometimes it’s necessary in order to find your path again. You’re making room for positive influences and humans to enter your life, which is not only the best way to heal, but the best way to feel “you” again.
Take a step back, and take a breath. Sometimes advice from your mom, your best friends, and your fiancé are the most important words to hear, and it’s okay not solve everything all by yourself. They know what’s best for you, even when you think you have life completely figured out. Allow yourself to breathe, and to put your mind at ease for a while. Go to a meditative slow flow, read a book, take a walk outside and listen to the sounds of nature, head to the beach and listen to the waves, take a LUSH bath (complete with lavender candles & chamomile tea), and refresh your mind, body, and soul. You are beautiful, you are strong, and you can overcome anything!
But the very first step, let it go.
Surround yourself with positive, inspiring beings and release those who don’t love and support you. You deserve nothing less than individuals who will do everything to build you up, instead of anything to tear you down. Nothing is worth sacrificing yourself or your happiness, and it’s okay to be a little selfish! No one, and no thing, can make you feel inferior without your consent, and if it doesn’t bring you joy it’s not worth keeping.
Life is truly beautiful, and worth enjoying every moment that you possibly can. Take a breath, take a step back, and find your balance.
