Still to this day many women underestimate themselves. They don’t believe they have what it takes to follow their dreams, their hearts and their intuitions. Women are constantly on the go, going to work, being a wife, a mother, a friend being everything to everyone and then losing a chunk of themselves in the process. It comes natural to us to nurture others, yet it doesn’t come natural to nurture ourselves. We find ourselves not getting enough sleep, struggling to find enough energy to make it thru the day, feeling overwhelmed, depressed or just full of anxiety. Our bodies are trying to speak to us, we just don’t slow down enough to listen. We believe it is normal to have our minds buzzing constantly with what we need to do now, in an hour, tomorrow and next week.
If we would take the time to check in with ourselves thru out the day, we would be able to make contact with one of our most powerful resources, our Intuition. A woman’s intuition never lets her down. Yet we doubt that intuition even when it has proven to be right time and time again over many many years. I think we continue to deny our intuitions because we have lost contact with who we are, so we question it and we don’t trust it, and what happens later it’s always proven to be right! The guy we knew we should have stayed away from turns out to be a dirt bag, the friend we got weird vibes from ends up being a backstabber, the job promotion we knew we were qualified for goes to another because we didn’t act on it when our intuition was moving us that direction and when we just didn’t feel right about something but because we didn’t have anything else to go on we proceed and it ends up we were right!
One of the best things you can do for yourself is to also take care of you. We are actually better for those around us if we are taking the time for ourselves. Don’t feel guilty or don’t feel like it is selfish, it is necessary to love and honor yourself, it will make you a better mom, wife, friend and better at your job performance. Even if it is just for 20 minutes a day where you just soak in the tub or cuddle up to a good book. It will allow you time to make that connection with yourself, to check in with you and know that you’re on the right track, the more you do this the more you will trust your intuition and that will help to make this A Wonderful Life!!
