SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 175: Grounding

IMG_1947

Thinking of my feet, I am no longer stuck in my thoughts.

With the grass between my toes, I can sense Mother Earth’s claim on my body, calling me down.

The weight of the hematite in my pocket gives me the sense of being HERE.

After three deep breaths in an embrace, with arms wrapped firmly around my body, and my shoulders relaxed, I have landed.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 174: Awareness of Addictions (+ being gentle)

IMG_1945

I eat when I’m bored. (It’s ok.)
I eat when I’m sad. (It’s ok.)
I eat when I’m lonely. (It’s ok.)
I eat sugar when it’s available, and then tell myself, “Just this once”. (It’s ok.)
I obsess when I feel inadequate or not enough. (It’s ok).
I check my phone often when I’m lonely. (It’s ok.)
I watch porn when nobody is around, it’s late, and I’m really tired and wishing I had just gone to bed early so I could read a book. (It’s ok.)

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 173: Creating the world I want to live in

IMG_1941

The world I want to live in is the world I am currently manifesting.

In this world, fantastic artistic opportunities show up in my life when I am open to the full potential of my being.

In this world, the people I connect with are authentic, vulnerable, supportive and loving.

In this world, I speak my truth, seek pleasure, feel deeply, honour my body, and love openly.

In this world, I welcome my shadow, seek to know it, and choose to love it; this includes my own insecurities, triggers and worries, as well as the people who mirror these things to me.

In this world, I have fun, laugh often, listen well, hug frequently, dance lots, be (rather than always do) with my children, savour my lover, and cherish my friends and family.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 172: Speak My Truth

IMG_1934

Right now, my truth is this: I am scared as fuck to be an adult. I feel like I’m faking it, and I have lost my sense of knowing what my purpose is here on Earth. I want to run away. I want to be held in the arms of the man I love until everything disappears. I worry about being judged in speaking this way, that I should be putting on a brave face and soldiering on. I am scared to be alone, I am scared I don’t know how to survive, and mostly, I am scared that nothing matters.

Half an hour later, I am feeling more balanced and able to cope. I see that I need sleep, and I am grateful to myself for speaking my truth – doing so propels me through the feelings, into a new space and a new perspective.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 171: Melt

IMG_1932

Your luscious, wet lips
upon mine turn my body
into oozing goo.

Gazing into your
eyes transforms my insides to
melted chocolate.

Your skin upon mine
is enough to change this ice
cream into a soup.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 170: Music Feeds My Soul

IMG_1924

With music, I am pulled deeper within my body, given the freedom to access the parts of me that are stuck, and tease the emotions out.

The music flows, my body flows, my tears flow.
The beat drops, my body thrusts, the energy builds.
The vocals rip my ears to shreds, my heart pounds, the anger moves.

A note, a beat, a melody, a harmony – the smallest part can grip my heart and feed me like nothing else.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 169: I Love My Life

IMG_1907

I love my life.
I’m doing what I want to be doing, and I adore the people I choose to spend my time with.

Some days I think I don’t love my life because I’m tired, I’m scared, or I’m feeling things I tell myself I don’t want to feel. But I love growth and learning, so I love all this, too.

I love my life.
