Today, I would like to share with you a very interesting article about how crucial it is to be able to put ourselves in the centre of our lives. Women have become very special and complicated beings: our spare time practically doesn’t exist, because we manage responsibilities each day that require us to juggle work and home, our children’s demands, as well as keeping the entire household together. We even feel responsible for making sure that our relationships are normal and satisfying. Ensuring that our psyche is up and running undoubtedly requires those moments, when we simply don’t exist for others and we take a few minutes to take a deep breath and relax. Of course, it would be ideal if we could do that several times a day, but since they say that practice makes perfect, I do believe that we’ll be able to conquer these six rules quickly. They’ll help make our lives easier and most of all, more beautiful.
Do more of what makes you happy – without any guilty conscience!
Which, of course, brings up a simple, yet difficult question, are you even aware of what makes you happy? I’m asking, because I’m still working on solving this dilemma, or rather: I know that long mornings spent between fresh sheets, without a cell phone or computer, make me happy; the balcony doors wide open onto a sea view. And yet I still always lack the time to enjoy this kind of moments, but I make it my resolution to work on it.
Pick the roses that grow in your soul
Very poetic and so true: take the time – again, with no guilty conscience – for all the moral values that the world so often tramples over, starting to make us wonder, if we really need them. So, when harshness starts to bother you, you should know it’s perfectly alright to seclude to your own private world now and then, where you can find more respect and calmness and simply enjoy the company of your soul. Personally, that’s where I think is the most beautiful place to be.
Trust in yourself
Even if you make mistakes and you’re disappointed or in a bad mood. Don’t think your happiness depends on others or that other people are to blame for your mistakes and mood. In the end, it’s just a matter of what’s in your thoughts and your head. You are what you think, and if you don’t like yourself, perhaps it’s time to refocus by starting to think positive thoughts and everything will be allright.
Eat dinner alone
Not a sandwich or yogurt, but an actual dinner, preferably in a candlelit restaurant, or at home, if you prefer cooking yourself and setting the table nicely. Have a good relationship with yourself, even if you’re alone, because it’s fulfilling and there is beauty to being alone, most of all, because you are your own best friend, which is why you deserve only the best.
Do what you want
Simply do what you like, what your heart is so loudly telling you to do; listen to your impulses, instincts and you inner energy. Go! Now! Desires can become so loud you won’t be able to quiet them, because they are what you are, and it is rightly so.
Little space for other people’s opinions
Because you don’t really care about them nor do you have the time for them, am I right? You can never please everybody and it doesn’t say anywhere that every single person should understand your story. And since it is YOUR story, do see it through to the end the way you think is right.
