The future is now so time to make it count. I am not one for resolutions as I am more about resetting. Resetting what I know is good for me and I need to do (notice no shoulds here).
The end of the year brought a big health scare for me, truly putting things in perspective for me. I can not keep giving more of myself than there is. I know lots of people are nodding here as so many are guilty of this. So I have decided to embrace more mindfulness and self-love.
This is the year of self-compassion, self-kindness and most importantly, SELF CARE. I am useless to help anyone if I give all of myself away. Most importantly I want to be there for my family in health as well as happiness. DBT's undercurrent is mindfulness with a heavy dose of nonjudgemental self compassion. I am going to be keeping it moving by pumping the brakes more often. Carving out time for my meditations, yoga, diving into this whole 30 for a reset to more mindful eating. Essentially taking time for me in all the positives so I can be of more help to everyone else. For those of us who feel we need to be all to everyone, consider this your permission slip to practice self care. Please take care of yourself in this giant reset of a new year. Make 2019 the year of self-care/kindness/compassion. All your loved ones and those you serve will thank you for it.
Namaste my friends and wishing you all the best of the best this year xx
