SELF LOVE ~ NURTURE Spending time with like minded soul sistas, filling each other’s cups equally as to which we fill our own individual baskets. Accepting and allowing safe opportunities to explore and embrace cultural and social similarities/differences, vulnerability and normalisation which of course transfers to feed seeds of growth within each other. Gentle reminders of practicing gratitude 🦋

The past year and few months in particular, I've been pushed face to face with my commitment to taking as good care of myself as I do those around me. And I have come up lacking. The need for gentleness and nurturing for my heart and deep attention to my body has been calling out very strong. I had a long standing low back issue that a year or PT did nothing to touch. In an attempt to fix that by laying completely flat when I slept, combined with consuming high amounts of peppermint tea and carbonated waters (my trade off for kicking caffeine) I inadvertantly and unknowingly gave myself a case of silent GERD when I slept which made me cough all the time when I spoke. (apparently peppermint tea is awful for acid reflux... Who knew!!) That combined with going through/recovering from my surgery, and an overwhelming amount of emotional stress, my body and heart has been crying out for care. And I listened. I listened better than I think I ever have. 🧡 After just a week of getting back to an early morning yoga practice I used to love, lots and lots of self myofascial work and glute medius attention, my back pain is going away. I made significant changes to my diet and eating habits including making yummy scratch bone broth that has become my new favorite way to start the day (thus the creepy chicken feet in photos. You're welcome) and my cough is finally gone. Taking long walks with my camera, instead of pushing myself up mountainsides every week. Slowing down at home with candles and music and kitty cuddles. I'm investing more in relationships that nurture my heart. New and old ones while also deeply embracing being alone with the parts of me that need my love and attention and holding the most. I highly recommend it. #selflove #selfcare #bonebroth #chickenfeet #healing #yoga #bikhramseries #homecooking #peace #nurture #fallinlove #innerchildhealing #innerchildwork #broth #loveyourself #caretaking #takegoodcare #stock #gerd #acidreflux #healyourself #healyourbody #healyourheart
