Do you know that feeling that your energy has been cut into a million pieces? That you have lost pieces of you everywhere? I had that today. And I’m going to tell you about it. Today is day 4 of the 30 day blogging challenge.
Do you know these days, that from the moment you wake up, everything seems to go wrong? Well, today was one of those days for me. I woke up from the alarm of my boyfriend, about half an hour before my own alarm.
Lately I have been hearing this a lot: “Positive thinking doesn’t work”. What?! Doesn’t work? I have experienced it myself and I can tell you that it does work! But apparently this is not the case for everybody, and I think I know why. I once heard someone explain why positive thinking doesn’t work.
I have an 8-year old daughter who loves talking. A LOT! When she’s petting the cat, she’s talking. Not only to the cat, but also to us. About how the cat is reacting to everything she does or about how he’s lying in her lap.
Following your intuition is a wonderful thing. It feels good, and it leads you to the things that are good for you. Nothing to worry about, right? But what if your mind is messing with you? What if your mind is telling you all of these things to keep you from following...
Meditation, yoga, mindfulness… You hear a lot about these things nowadays. I see many people struggling, because they have to go to yoga, because it’s good for them. Do they really like it? Of course many do, but in some cases I’m not sure... I also hear people say that they want to meditate, but don’t have the time, or they don’t have the patience to sit down and quiet their mind.
Self love, it’s something you see a lot of people talking about these days. On Facebook I see messages about self love regularly. Or is it me? Is it because I have been focussing on that? That’s possible. But still I’d really love to talk to you about this, because I think it’s a very important subject.
Does it happen to you, that you go to a party, you’re having fun, but after a while you feel like you want to escape to a quiet place, because it all becomes a bit too much? Being highly sensitive and an introvert, places with a lot of people can be overwhelming for me.
I'm sitting in my garden, in the sun. It's the first day this year and I'm really excited about it. With my feet in the grass I feel more connected to the earth, but also more connected to myself. I am wearing shoes though, it's still kind of cold, especially the earth ;-)
