SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 212: Flow//Be Me

IMG_2290

I am most authentically me when I allow whatever is present to flow through me. Hmmm…writing that, I question whether there is really a lack of authenticity in denying my feelings – it is something that I do, so aren’t I just as much me when I deny my feelings as when I allow them to be? Here is the truth: when I allow my feelings to flow, and I am not pushing them away, or stuck, then I am most in tune with the pure me – the me that knows I am safe, the me that trusts the universe, the me that can see the bigger picture, and has a sense of connection to everything.

When I am in flow, I am pure me.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 211: Desire to Give

IMG_2288

Instead of paying attention to all the things I didn’t get done today, I want to give myself acknowledgement for all I have achieved.

Rather than focusing on how far I still have to go, I want to give myself credit for how far I have come.

I don’t need to look at all the ways my body is “lacking”; I can give attention to all the parts I am grateful for.

Instead of believing I have to do everything alone, I am giving gratitude and love to all the people who help me on my journey.

I no longer have to hold you near in order for me to feel whole; I give you the freedom to be you, and in doing so, I give myself the freedom to be me.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 210: Allow

IMG_2278

I allow myself to feel pleasure.
I allow my feelings to be seen, heard, and felt.
I allow myself the space I need to be me.
I allow myself to speak my truth.
I allow myself time to figure out what I want.
I allow for change and give myself permission to change my mind.
I allow myself to be fully, unapologetically, and authentically me.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 209: Parent My Child

IMG_2267

I am a mother of three, and while I am by no means a perfect mom (whatever that means), I treat my children with respect, love and care.

My inner child does not receive this quality of parenting; not even close. She is asked, “What is wrong with you?”, and her feelings are frequently shut down for fear of seeming too needy or immature. She is constantly pushed away or neglected.

It is time for her to be seen, to be healed. When she takes control of my life, I am holding her, parenting her, listening to her, and giving her boundaries. I am showing her respect, and making sure she is heard. I am no longer rejecting her, and I am telling her she is safe.

I am telling her she is loved.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 208: Vision

IMG_2262

I see you with fresh eyes (I don’t assume you are the same person you were yesterday).

I see myself in 5 years, successful by my standards (I look back 5 years to see how far I have come).

I see what surrounds me, and pay particular attention to nature (I want to do this more).

I see you (and allow you to see the authentic me).

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 207: Listening to the Voice Within

IMG_2260

Today my voice within was asking, “What the hell is wrong with you?”

The trick is in knowing that this voice doesn’t belong to me, and when I hear it, I can respond with the words I need to hear:

“I love you, Belinda.”

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 206: Every New Moment

IMG_2257

Your breath on my neck, like forbidden kisses.
Arms flail as I dance around the room.
The sensation of my hands travelling over my body.
Witnessing the pleasure I bring to you, which brings me pleasure.
Asking questions. Breathing. Hearing answers.
New smells.
Chocolate melting on my lips.
Allowing pleasure.
Being present for every new moment.
