“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”
― Lord Byron
Love everything about babies and can honestly say being a mum has been my greatest blessing. Love kids!
This is especially pertinent to women, who often don't have a STOP button and we can get overwhelmed and burnt out, because in our heads we are juggling so many things. Often for men, it can be the same scenario as a lot of men say " I have my list of things to do and my partner/wife's list to do". Jokes aside we all need to improve our self care routine. A good way is to define your OWN self care routine
I am often asked this question, where people feel they are being held back from their true purpose. I believe "your deepest desire is your true purpose". When you are fulfilling your purpose there is a lightness within you and a sense of self (not sure now if I am confusing people).
My sincere wish is everyone finds their true purpose.
I have been so inspired in my own lifetime by Viktor Frankl's book, Man's Search for Meaning.
When a hopeful attitude is hard to find, please don't add to your desolation... Sit with that difficulty. Bring compassion to it. Let it (and you) soften. Ask yourself, "What will support me here?"
Let yourself sit quietly in a place of beauty.
Walk slowly, drawing in the present moment through your gaze.
Taste something...as a momentary gift to yourself.
Be the friend you need in this moment. That will also make it easier for others to give to you.
Reach out. Ask another being, "What would help?"
Listen to music; let it enter the cells of your being and your soul.
Any of these small, self-loving gestures will support "attitude"; they are also empowering.
While researching ways to feel more connected in a society where 45% of people report feeling lonely, authenticity emerged as a common strategy for combating loneliness. When there’s an gap between what you’re delivering to others and how you’re actually experiencing life, loneliness and insecurity are sure to follow. Why? Well, when you’re not showing people the real you, you can’t be sure the person is choosing you.
