Nicky's Nuggets to Real Life Stress
A couple of weeks ago I could feel a lull in my energy surfacing upon rising. I couldn't attribute this to any particular mile marker and put my "Sanity Kit" in high gear. Fun music, journaling, moving around, but mostly I needed to be alone because I was not in a pleasant mood to be around others. I sent a message to my Coach saying that I needed a session asap., I reached out to my Husband and asked for prayers, and talked with my Mother-in-Law and Mom about my tears that surfaced a couple of times that day. Surely most of them were likely surprised because I'm usually upbeat, optimistic, positive, and hopeful. I also had a really important workshop that I was presenting at and needed to get this breakdown up and out. I gave myself permission that day and was truthfully looking forward to the tears to be released.
You bet that it happened, but only after I had gotten angry. So here's what led to my breakdown...CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND MY CONTROL. August 2016 we left our home because of the Great Flood and have yet to return. I felt so broken and just so tired of what seemed to be fighting a losing battle. I allowed myself to have this moment, but then I found the breakthrough. I realized that I had to trust this process, believe that it was all sorted out, and regain focus on how I work with and help others. So I took care of myself and then I had even greater energy to take care of my health and well-being. My sessions with my clients were so powerful and one even said that she felt like she had a healing that had taken place.
The moral to this share with you is the importance of getting to hear what our body is telling us and taking the right action to heal to be your best self for you and others.
