Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Oct 5, 2021

I begin this episode with a favorite blog post, What If I Don’t Know What I Want?... cause that’s a problem sometimes. Honestly, the world is so intense, so busy. So fraught. And we are SO plugged in, who can hear herself think? If that resonates, I hope this show is a help. Pull out your journal, friend!

In the main part of this show, I talk about the Self-Care of Spirituality. Why? Because having a belief in something larger, whether that’s intuition, spirit guides, a religious figure or the Universe.. or something else you define, is hugely helpful in putting away anxiety and worry. So ultimately this is a show about trust and acceptance—two key tenets of self-care that I learned after my daughter Teal’s death.

In the show I share what I consider to be 8 basic truths about self-care and spirituality:

  1. There is more to the world than meets the eye
  2. You are not alone
  3. The Universe has your back 
  4. Everything happens for a reason
    1. When Things Don’t Go Your Way there’s probably a reason
  5. We are here to evolve and grow and LEARN LESSONS
    1. Difficult people are our teachers
  6. We sign up for this life ahead of time
    1. We progress from lifetime to lifetime
    2. We agree to these difficult people and situations and even agree with them before we’re born
  7. You DO have a purpose and a path
    1. Your intuition and inner knowing will guide you
    2. This is the path to the very best YOU 
    3. This is also the path to the greatest self-care
  8. You are far more powerful than you know
    1. You are given everything you need to progress as you will

May this show move you to greater compassion for yourself and the world.
