Today I woke up to a rainy cool day and feeling very somber. So I took the opportunity to get a hot bath going and put some solar salt together with some of my healing oils. I lit a white candle and took some time for myself. I said some prayers and asking God and my Angels for some guidance. Sometimes when you are constantly on the go you start to become depleted. I have been feeling emotional and just tired; not really wanting to deal with anything. This usually happens when I have a lot of myself going in different directions.
When I was done with my bath I just sat in peace and wondering what it would look like if I started to put a little make-up on to get ready for the fall season. Today I am starting to feel my age of 46 and wanted to do something nice for me. I always tell my beautiful friends to love every bit of yourself no matter what. So I took my own advice; instead of criticizing myself, I loved myself and took the time for me.
Last night I watch a reality show called Girlfriends Intervention; I absolutely loved it. It is about white women who don't have the confidence in themselves so they stop being who they really are. These four beautiful black women have interventions with white women so that they can see the beauty in themselves. You have to watch it! Who these black women are for the white women took my breath away. Everyone says how much we are all so divided, and I loved watching women of all color helping each other. This is what this blog is all about. Finding yourself and loving your true self for all that you are.
I think that waking up the way I did was a direct reflection of the show that I watched last night. I took the time to find myself this morning and do something nice. I took a picture of myself and I was surprised to see I did not look 46 in the picture. I feel like my youth and who I am being is shining through.
Today my friends truly do something amazing for yourself. Take the time to really love and honor who you are. Until we meet again my friends...
