Your Emotions Matter
This morning, I woke up to a revelational approach in my thinking that caught my attention as I was reflecting on what I was feeling in the moment. I'd like to unpack some of it here because there was a strong sense of understanding, calm and peace that came with the thought process. I strive not to ignore these moments and quickly captured it for this post.
As we have, culturally, shifted into exploring more ways to fit our unique directions in life and desire for self-development, "becoming and being" who we are, has taken on a new meaning for many of us. This work cannot be complete without first knowing "where we currently are", in our emotions. We don't know where we currently are if we are not allowing ourselves to feel.
How you feel, matters.
It's not always about what I see in the mirror. Sometimes I don't feel beautiful when I have worked harder than I am aware of at the time and feel burned out. This eventually leads to forgetting self-care. Prolonged time away from self-care and care for the body makes me feel not beautiful.
