I was having a rough week and definitely was not prioritizing my meditation practice or self-care in general. I sat down on my cushion and decided to do a guided meditation on this particular day. I’m closing my eyes, I’m starting to breathe and all of a sudden I hear…
My strength surrounds me.
Love guides me.
Peace fills me.
Almost immediately I burst into tears. It was exactly what I needed to hear.
There’s been a lot to navigate and figure out lately. Work is stressing me out; I’m getting to the end of my yoga teacher training program and feeling the pressure; I’m trying to figure out what is right for me right now and what isn’t, and I’m definitely feeling the overwhelm.
It kind of reminded me of this quote from Winnie the Pooh:
You are braver than you believe.
Stronger than you seem.
Smarter than you think.
And loved more than you will ever know.
Some days aren’t going to be easy. Other days you’ll be on the top of the world. Regardless of where you are today, this quote is such a perfect reminder and comfort. I hope you find some comfort for yourself in those words today.
