Bliss Diary – July 2, 2015

Some people have a wonderful capacity to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic goods of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder, and even ecstasy. — Abraham Maslow

Body Goodness: I’m really appreciating and feeling a desire for more self-care. I shared an interview with Renee Trudeau on this topic. It’s really powerful, especially for women. I know I need a lot of self-care. I flourish when I go at a slower pace and care for my body in a variety of different ways. I’ve accepted (most of the time) that I have a sensitive system and to see this as a strength not a weakness.

Mind/Heart/Spirit Goodness: Beauty is in my space today. What does it mean to be beautiful? I have been appreciating my body more. I used to be so critical of the way my body looked, especially in my 20’s. Now, I am doing my best to look at it with the eyes of love. Looking in the mirror and saying, “I love you,” even if it feels awkward at times. I am beautiful, not for how much I weigh, what I look like, what I wear…I am beautiful because I am a glorious woman and I’m alive. That’s enough. Just the way I am. Even on the days that I don’t feel like it, there is still beauty shining through.

Gratitude & Appreciation: I am grateful for music and dance. I am grateful for my rebounder. I am grateful that my husband cleaned up the kitchen today. I am grateful for FaceTime. I am grateful for my step-dad (it’s his birthday today). He’s always been so supportive. I am grateful for my momma goddess friend, Audra. I am grateful for my son’s sweetness. I am grateful for my Goddess body. I am grateful for my unique expression of my divine essence.
