Messages from the body: Self Care and Surrender

Surrender & Self Care

Through messages from my body this weekend, I was told to ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ. My impatience was made to bow down to the higher forces that told me to eat my own advice ๐Ÿคฃ ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ณ ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ. Not always easy. I am a natural do-er, with a tendency towards people pleasing (working on it!). There were things I was excited to do, appointments to be had, patients to see…โฃ

2020 has shaken my vision. Perhaps yours, too. But life isnโ€™t supposed to always go to according to plan. Though the path ahead still isnโ€™t clear to me, that’s ok. What became clear to me this weekend was a reminder of what I do have: ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ. Without leaving my house, I had phone calls and laughs and cries with people I love, and was able to appreciate ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด. โฃ
