When my latest new client first called she was overwhelmed and feeling challenged throughout her life and felt paralyzed. She had no idea where to begin. Her marriage was troubled, her job was stressful, she was very busy taking care of other people, and her physical health was declining.
When I asked her how this made her feel, she described feeling exhausted, ashamed, and depressed. Can you relate?
I think she was surprised when I suggested she start by pulling in and taking care of herself. (She was hoping the first step would be making her husband change.)
I shared with her that when we face multiple challenges, it is important to start at the core. This is where we have the greatest influence and can start a pattern of success. For most of us, this core is about self-care and self-nurturing.
When your life feels like a mess, practice the art of pulling in. Start with yourself. You are the center of your life and all that happens in it.
Your body is one of your most precious assets and an excellent place to begin your journey. Nurturing your body into health will help you feel stronger, more confident, and energized.
It is from this place that you will be able to connect with the empowered wisdom that will support you in the rest of your life.
This is the path that my client is taking. Her commitment to making her health a priority is already supporting her both physically and mentally. She has more energy and feels more positive. I am supporting her as she works through her life challenges and love witnessing her new confidence in being able to create the life she wants.
Whenever you feel overwhelmed, remember that it all begins with you. Pull in and take care of yourself. When you create a foundation of health and well-being, the rest will start to fall into place.
If you would like support in moving through challenges, navigating transitions, or creating a more fulfilling life, I would love to help.
