I love visualizing my energy and power growing up, uP, UP from my feet through my head. I love taking a deep breath and choosing calm. I love releasing frustrations with my daughter and we pretend we are volcanoes. And I love being able to respond instead of react when I remember that I always have a say over who is holding MY power.
I cannot control what is happening outside. I cannot control having no income and still having bills to pay. I cannot control how other people are feeling or how they are responding to all this stress. But I can control how I do. I can control my breath. I can control what thoughts I let stay in my mind.
I'm grateful for a sunny day. I'm grateful for the flowers blooming. I'm grateful to visualize that warmth and that growth blooming inside me. I'm grateful to choose balance and to choose what I give my energy and focus to. I'm grateful to power UP. I'm grateful to know that even with no sleep I can still be a good version of myself even if not my best version. I'm grateful to know I can balance within these circumstances. I'm grateful to breath out the stress and breath in renewed power.
Where is your power? What helps you balance and power up?
May today bring joy and balance. May we listen to our own advice and hold our own power. Have a beautiful day!
