I keep saying my daughter is growing up too fast and I miss the first few weeks when I could just lie around and hold her. I keep saying that I don't have enough time to get everything do and just relax with her during the day. I keep saying I need to find balance and de-stress so that I can rid myself of chest pains. And I keep asking, how do I do this?
Last night as I had to stop three times in less than an hour to calm the frantic feeling of too much to get done in order to just breathe and recenter, I realized that I had been receiving my answer. The Universe had been trying to grant my request. The only thing that stops me and makes me rest with my baby and let go of the stress of getting everything done... being sick. I had a good laugh and had to say thank you for that fulfillment but now it is time for me to ask for something new. It is time for me to start fulfilling that request myself in a healthier way.
Over the last few days I have done a better job of nurturing myself, boosting my health, and asking for help. I am proud of myself for that because it is a step in the right direction. And yet going back to work yesterday I was right back into letting stress and pressure overwhelm me. This is my new task and with it being more conscious of what I request.
I'm grateful for this epiphany. I'm grateful for the Universe trying to fulfill my wishes. I'm grateful to be more aware of what I ask for now. I'm grateful to have regained health and started more healthy practices to keep it. I'm grateful for the opportunity to balance better within my work. And I'm grateful for the opportunity to be aware of my stress and not get swept up in it. I'm grateful for this journey as I work on balance and I'm grateful to take over the reins in accomplishing this in a healthier way.
What have you been asking for lately? Has your wish been fulfilled in some way, even if not the way you intended? How can we be more specific in our requests?
May our words and wishes reflect our true desires. May we be conscious of all the ways we are supported and find gratitude in this support. Have a beautiful day!
