The last few years I've become increasingly aware of how the seasons effect my mental and emotional wellbeing.
One of the most Important things I have found to help my state of being is the act of grounding. Having my bare feet touch the ground does amazing things for me in every aspect. Unfortuanlty I live in the prairies of Canada and our winters are long, full of snow and VERY cold.
Coming up to the winter solstice is when I find myself the most drained. As the days grow longer and the seasons shift back to warmer weather and spring brings life back to the outdoors I find myself feeling alive as well. It's important for me to find things to to in the winter that keep my mind open, creative and in a healthy space. Some of the things I like to do are make music, create art and read.
What are some things you do to keep you mind and emotions healthy?
After I had my son I became obsessed with losing weight. I became a slave to the scale. Consuming no more than 900 calories a day and burning up to 500. I was a size 0, the skinniest I’d ever been. I had reached my goal but I was so unhappy, hungry, depressed. Now I’m 20 pounds heavier, I eat whatever the fuck I want and exercise moderately but most importantly I celebrate these curves and am happier and more confident than I ever been. This post meant so much to me. Find you someone who makes you feel like the beautiful women you are and if anybody ever makes you feel ashamed of your goddess rolls tell them to go fuck themselves and go on your way being the bad bitches you are🤟🏽🔮🌀
Because you are an energetic being and your thoughts and feelings are energy, your journey may be compared to an intricately woven fabric. As the weaver of the fabric of your life, you alone decide whether your life will be beautifully intertwined with threads of gold and silver and blended with the colors of the rainbow, or made with strands of straw and cotton in shades of grays, browns, and other dark, heavy colors.
