Hey Beautiful souls!
So we all know how COVID is affecting us here in Melbourne Victoria, l don't feel the need to go into the detail of how much it is affecting us all, because those of us living this lockdown know first hand what Negative impacts it's had on every single one of us!
What l did want to talk about is the positive impacts this lock down has had on me personally, and what that has meant for my loved ones around me. There are many but on a more of a personal and deeper level is one in particular.
Whilst home-schooling l saw my beautiful boy becoming a pre-teen and the suppressed emotional parts he was holding onto that l had not recognised. l was also awakened to see where l had contributed to this cycle for him and decided to do some healing work on myself in order to help him. Starting this with a loving intention for my child also began a loving intention for myself, l would take some time out during the day if only 10 mins to an hour for myself to meditate, read, exercise, eat right, reconnect and breathe.
Within these moments l have had a chance to really dig deep in loving myself, my body, my mind and most of all being present in the moment. The change does and will always start with you!!!
It's not all rainbows, sunshine and lollipops but l was being truly honest with myself, asking what vision did l have for myself, my life and what l wanted for my son. I don't point fingers and place blame, l simply understand that everything happens how it happens, and it’s up to me to choose how I want to feel about it, how l am going to take responsibility for things in my life and how l can change it. I am in control of my attitude, and no one can take that away from me. l have many waves to ride on this journey and as long as l have love for myself then everyone riding that wave with me, will feel the love too. The beautiful everyday rituals l have been practicing have shifted so much within and l sometimes wonder if l hadn't had the chance to slow down and get to this point then I'm not sure how long this might have taken to get to.
There are so many positives especially for Mother Earth, but if you get a chance when taking the dog for a walk or grabbing your morning coffee, just have a think on one positive that has come out of this for you!
