"We need a warrior's heart that let's us face our lives directly; our pains and limitations, our joys and possibilities." -Jack Kornfield-
You've done it, everything that you needed to do to make life happen. With all the roadblocks, and a constant rapid changing environment, you did it. It's not easy, perhaps scary at times, but you manage to face those fears, and adapt to change. Take a breath, give yourself credit for all that you have done; you have a warrior spirit.
Courage, determination, grit, steadfastness, intrepidness, gratitude, empathy, grace, humility, selflessness are all traits of the warrior spirit. These traits grant us the ability to access our warrior spirit, to execute decisions with wisdom without compromising our values. It takes tremendous strength and personal leadership to take action with gentleness, listen with empathy, maintain focus and clarity.
It can be stressful during times of change, making sure that bills are paid, children are educated, and food is on the table. Although that you are making life happen, it is inevitable that stressful energy will begin to take it's toll on you. If this stress is not addressed, it becomes more difficult to access your warrior spirit. You become fatigued, your energy and drive begins to dissipate.
If anytime is right for self-care, the time is now. The time is now to identify what elements in your life have been knocked out of balance. You have been fighting hard, ensuring everyone else is ok; but what about you?
Maybe it's time to rekindle a romance, go for a hike in nature, get a massage, get back into a workout routine, meditate, go fishing (this season is coming,) meet with some friends, what ever it is that has been displaced in your life. When we regain balance in our lives, we begin to live a harmonious life. When we are living a harmonious life, we have the clarity to access our warrior spirit, allowing us to effectively create the necessary change.
Super Awesome Stuff!
