#SelfCare - Do You Act or React?

What a wonderful quote to find in my newsfeed today! I was listening to a daily meditation lesson this morning on the theme of “shempa” and I feel this goes hand in hand with it.

Do you ACT or REACT?

Do you find yourself easily hooked into drama or others who seem to want to share their negativity with you?

Do experiences from the past that deeply hurt you still hold power enough to sway you from feeling balanced and focused?

I can only answer this personally ... yes. While I’ve definitely seen a lot of improvement within myself, I know that it’s something I still struggle with. I’ve seen a lot of great talks recently - specifically one that talked about realizing that often times when someone has an issue with you, it stems from their own capacity to love and accept themselves. I know that it is at the root of my own insecurities and my interactions with others. Today’s meditation reminded me I am responsible for me and that I can choose to view each situation knee deep in reactive emotion or to evaluate it from a calm outer advantage point.

I can chose to sink or to rise
I can chose to acknowledge my feelings and then let go of what doesn’t serve me.
I can chose to empower myself and take a deep breath.

I love this quote so much! It goes wonderfully with my commitment to taking better care of myself, both physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I am worth it.
You are worth it.
Fall in love with your life.
