Too often we wait for the 'perfect' moment to do what it is that we know needs to be done. We say to ourselves, I'll do it when.........work settles down........the holidays come........once the kids are organised......next week.......tomorrow and a variety of other 'whens' that endless delay us from doing what we truly need.
When life is hectic, we say that we will relax once things settle down but the truth is that you need that relaxation now. Find the time to take some deep breaths, to go for a walk, to do a yoga class, meditate or some other activity that brings you that state of calm. Know that it is possible to find the calm within the chaos. Infact, that is the time that we need the calm the most and you have the potential to create the calm in the busiest and most hectic times you face. Don't wait for the conditions to be perfect, find ways to connect with the peace and calm in any situation you find yourself in. Know that your willingness to do this can help prevent stress building up and becoming overwhelming and make you less likely to be burnout by the time that holiday comes!
Perhaps you are someone who is always looking after others, delaying your own selfcare. Maybe you see yourself as a last priority, someone not deserving of the care that you so willingly give others. Now is the time to look after yourself well, make your health and wellbeing a priority. The quality of your life is important and taking steps to enhance this quality not only helps you but also helps those around you. Do what you need to do and give yourself the opportunity to enjoy your life to the fullest.
Sometimes there are things to face that we have been avoiding. Truths that we know deep within our heart that require us to be vulnerable and deeply honest. Now is the time to face these things, to unburden yourself from this load you have been carrying. It is time to speak your truth, to reach out for help and support and to free yourself from the shames and fears you have been carrying in your heart. You must know that you are not alone and that these hidden feelings have more power when they are pushed down deep inside you. It is time to set them free and for the pains of the past to no longer weigh you down. Perhaps you can create a ritual to let them go, speak to a trusted friend, partner or family member, write thongs down or reach out for professional support. Know that you have the courage within you to do what needs to be done.
No matter what it is that you need to do, now is the time to do it. Take a few minutes to sit quietly with yourself and pose a question, "What is it that I need to do right now?" or "What is it that I need in this moment". Then simply create space for the answer to come. Or you may prefer to write the question at the top of a piece of paper and allow 5-15 minutes to write whatever thoughts come to mind, no matter how strange they seem!
Don't wait for the 'perfect' moment to do what needs to be done. The moment is now, and you know what to do. The real question is, "Are you willing to listen?!".
