Ever feel frazzled, stressed, overwhelmed or at the end or your rope? Life shouldn't be a struggle, but many of us still go through deep valleys on our journey towards something better. To help us move through the challenging times with more grace, it is crucial to learn some keys to developing a resilience mindset. Those of us who choose to follow our passion to make a positive change in the world around us are especially prone to burn-out and over-giving of ourselves. So here are some of what I believe are the keys to building personal resilience:
~ Nourish yourself first (nourishing food, sleep, movement, love) ~
~ Play to your personal strengths & highest values ~
~ Surround yourself with a like-minded tribe ~
~ Be authentically you (you are unique and your purpose is too) ~
~ Value your personal contribution (but don't take yourself too seriously) ~
~ Practice self-compassion and heart-felt acceptance ~
~ Be 'willing' to forgive yourself and let it go ~
~ Allow yourself time to 'switch off' and be still ~
~ Honour your dreams and pursue them with passion ~
~ Let your inner child out to play, laugh and enjoy. Often!!
When life feels difficult, keep on moving, even just the tiniest step forward! Re-view, re-assess and reset your inner GPS. The storm around you is life transforming itself in order to manifest something even better and it hurts less if we go gracefully with the flow rather than resisting the change. Pray, shout, declare or share what's on your heart, there is power in the spoken word and your passion and dreams are there for reason. So let go of your perceived ideas of what is right, have faith in the outcome, and keep looking for the blessings and rainbows. Remember, the only thing constant is change. Strengthen your resilience through flexing the muscles of faith, gratitude, courage and determination. Speak up for what you believe.
Be gentle on yourself, you have come this far, you are awesome! Enhance your well-being by being still and connecting with the well of infinite love, appreciation and compassion found in your heart. Send love to every cell of your body, because it loves you more than anything else in the world. Let go and let your mind be still, all is well and the infinite love of the Universe has your back.
