S E L F  L O V E ~ Can we talk frankly about self love/self care/whatever you want to call it? ~

Recently, my mornings have become my safe space. With all the #newbusinessownerstruggles, I quickly found that if I wasn’t intentional about my time to nurture myself, I was going to burn out- hard and fast.
I started waking up early to walk Toes & Rose, followed by morning pages and time with God. Instead of rolling out of bed 15 minutes before I left for work, I began waking up an hour and a half before I needed to leave. And y’all- it makes a WORLD of difference. ~

BUT- this morning, I didn’t get to do any of that. I woke up late, and because my parents came in town this weekend {which was wonderful, don’t get me wrong} we were leaving extra early to have coffee before they hit the road home. So I woke up late, on an air mattress, Toes and Rose had a complete freak out at two other dogs, followed by a short and frustrating walk. There was no time for writing or praying. ~

How’d that play out for me? Not good. My coworkers just witnessed a mini breakdown that resulted with me lying on my office floor. Luckily they’re awesome and we laughed together at my over-dramatic reaction to forgetting a meeting. ~

So here we are, 10am and I’m feeling overwhelmed by the desire to just go back to bed. And I could just stay there all day...but I have a CHOICE. ~

Self care is obviously important, but what happens if you don’t get to it for whatever reason? Is the day ruined? Maybe- if you let it be. But you don’t have to. You can stop in this moment, do a little writing {hence this long saga}, and give your day back to God. ~

We have the choice right? So I’m gonna sit back and enjoy this cold brew, the art on my office walls, and the fact that I can choose to start over at 5am, 10am, or 8pm. ~

Mental health is close to my heart, and with the relaunch of Taira Adair Art, you’ll be seeing more honest thoughts, support, and self love. If you’ve had a morning like this- what helps you change the discourse of the day? ~

Boat trip. So beautiful but chaotic today. Shattered. Read more when I write it on Louiseusher.co.uk.

Sometimes a subplot that looked  promising  is just not working and you have to walk away and try something else.

@shaylavarnado here’s to accountability 😘it’s not a proper blog, but it’s movement in the right direction starting with daily “morning pages” as a nice meditative brain dump. Just 3 handwritten pages every morning about anything or nothing, just to get some of the “monkey mind” as they call it out onto paper in order to focus on a more logical and productive rest of the day ☕️

Imagine your child that you truly love. Nothing they do is wrong, because you tell yourself that they are trying, they are learning. They are never a lost cause. They are to be protected. They are loved.
.
It is your responsibility to teach them new things, to watch them as they grow, to be there when they fail, and to cheer them on their successes.
.
Every time they make it, you say "Good job", every time they don't, you say "Good job for trying".
.
No one is more beautiful to you than them. A look in their shining eyes makes your day. A pouty lip melts your heart and you rush in to comfort them.
.
You have a bandaid for every hurt, and a kiss for every booboo. You love them no matter what. They are not perfect, but to you, they are perfect in every way.
.
Now imagine this is how you also felt about yourself. The person that stares back at you in the mirror. The one that will stay with you even when the children grow up and move away. The one that you are not so kind to.
.
You are capable. You are capable of loving your child unconditionally. This means you are capable of doing the same for you. So do it.
.
Love YOU.

Time to try again 📝
I don’t think I was in quite the right place the last time I attempted to work through The Artist’s Way. I’ve read and heard so many great things about it though, and I want to give it a real try. 
So I’m going to re-read a bit and get myself prepared for beginning again tomorrow, and then it’s herb school homework time 🌿🤓

Have you worked through this book? What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear more. 👂🏽👂🏽👂🏽

A few of my favorite things...journal, coffee, happy horses eating breakfast, nature, and boots. 
I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting and dreaming lately, hence the journal. I love journaling because it gives me a place to download my thoughts, process recent life experiences, and get clear about what I want in this chapter of life. 
If thoughts keep swirling in my head with no outlet, I feel out of whack; when I lasso them down on a page, things become clear.💡 In this moment I’m very clear that my soul is happiest out in the country 💕🐴 #BeyondtheArena #healingpowerofhorses #journal #morningpages #empower #horselover #followyourdreams #healing #countrygirl

One week straight of #morningpages #upwiththesun and #morningrun

Thought I'd be extra motivated and do some #tireflips and even get Daniel to workout with me.  Yeah, so 8 flips into our race to 10 I felt a nice little pop in my lower back. Been laying on the floor with an ice pack ever since.  So goes the #universe. I guess I can't let momentum and motivation outweigh the age factor in working my way back to #gymrat status. 😖🤬

On my road to recovery from burnout, I’ve found establishing a daily routine for self care is vitally important! It’s not about being perfect, the routine is not dogma, but something to strive for when time and interest allow. I start every morning playing brain games, 3 different apps in fact! @lumosity, elevate, and @peaklabs! It’s my decompression time as my brain starts whirring the moment my eyes open (sometimes even before!). After that, I meditate using the @calm app and Tamara always seems to speak to my soul (today’s theme was burnout). Soon after comes movement, supplements, sauna, stretching, etc... my next goal is to incorporate #morningpages and/or journaling. What’s your morning routine? How do you unplug?

Reflect. Reset. Rejuvenate. I always start my mornings with coffee and some journaling. Most mornings, I spend five minutes writing whatever pops into my head, free-form, which helps me clear my head and gather my thoughts. I then write down three things I’m grateful for, and finish out my journaling session with some affirmations (which are really just things I sometimes need to convince myself of - “I am a good friend”, “I am strong”, etc). Journaling and reflecting help me start my day with PURPOSE.

Who could know that then? Beneath the face of anyone you ever loved for true -anyone you love, you will always love, love is not at the mercy of time and it does not recognize death, they are strangers to each other -beneath the face of the beloved, however ancient, ruined, and scarred, is the face of the baby your love once was, and will always be, for you. -James Baldwin//Just Above My Head

Your grief is frustrating today. I said I’m letting go. It’s what you want. How dare you feel sad when this is what you’re asking for? (I don’t really mean that, you know.) Your sadness makes me angry, because my sadness is deep. My anger is protecting my sadness. My sadness is sacred because my heart is sacred. #poetry #morningpages #instapoetry #instatherapy #sadness #anger #grief #love #emotions #lovestory #lettinggo #process
Whole. Healthy. Wise. It's a journey always unfolding and growing. It is always uncomfortable sharing my very personal journal pages. I think a large part of that is to sheild myself and protect myself from possible harm. It's a reflex of my past, but it's also a healthy one. It gives me time for pause and to think things through first. To share what I want to share intentionally, for however long, and on what terms I choose to share. I'm enjoying the start to this day, sitting here in my Huck Finn pants 😉, in one of my favorite places, journaling in the rising sun while it sets everything in a beautiful golden amber morning light. Hope you all have a perfectly lovely day today. 💜 #hedgebirdcottage #travelersnotebook #tn #tnobsessed #tnlover #journaling #journalpages #selfenrichment #selfcare #selfcarejourney #selflove #healing #strength #growing #leathernotebooks #followingmyownpath #leathertotebag #leathertote #thechicsparrow #mrdarcybutteredrum #creme #maverick #maverickleather #morningmotivation #morningpages #simpleabundance #family #love #friendship #acceptance

In studying habit loops and absorbing ideas from Charles Duhigg's book The Power of Habit, I want to share a quick visual explanation of thoughts.

In the purest form, the gumball machine is a shining example of the habit loop.  The construct for any habit loop consists of a cue or trigger, a routine, and a reward.  When we encounter a gumball machine, the bright red color and glass globe encasing even more colorful gumballs is an instant cue that triggers many associations in our minds.  Almost immediately it sparks the sweet sensation of gum rolling around our teeth and tongues.  There might even be the occasional imaginary pop sound of a bubble break.  Childhood memories play into to the simple sight of this dispenser of delights.

We know the routine.  Grab a coin, place it into the slot and turn the crank to release a colorful gumball down the shoot.  The mechanical sounds produced during the process excite our minds for the reward to come.

Finally, the reward drops to the tiny trap door with its savory satisfaction.  There is no more straightforward example of a habit loop.  If it were a Pavlovian experiment, the cranking sound gets replaced with a bell.

I have lost myself in a big way and I keep getting restless. Lately, when I feel myself getting restless, I force myself to get still. To be WITH my thoughts instead of suppressing them. 
Journaling does that for me. My morning pages help me lay it all out and if I have had a particularly rough day, I journal before I go to bed. 
This is when the answers come. You find yourself thinking it out rather than wishing it would changr, whatever it is.

What’s your morning routine? 
Where possible I try to spend at least the first hour of my day taking care of me. Morning journaling as become a huge part of my life and I honestly think I’d be lost without it. I like to spend. Few minutes writing down at least three things I’m grateful for. Sometimes I leave it at that, others days I spend a bit longer working through thoughts and ideas. It leaves me feeling much clearer for the day ahead. ✨

//WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR?//⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh deer, everyone can see my favorite jammies 😂🙈🦌I do have a thing for deers after all... 😍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you grateful for today? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The more we get into the state of appreciation, the more we're able to tap into good-feeling thoughts, which in turn allows us to attract more of what we think and feel into our experience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Want to attract a better reality than you have today? Start naming everything you are thankful for... and feel the feelings!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Personally:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I LOVE my cashmere top... it feels so soft! ✔️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I LOVE the chunky white throw we have, I love the texture, I love the colour, I love how it adds to our space ✔️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I LOVE #kikkik and their journals and pens.... I think they're so well-designed and I LOVE minimalistic #scandi designs!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And of course, I love my jammy jams!!! The print is so cute! 🤣✔️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you grateful for? Tell me in the comments below!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Get quiet. Feel feel your body. Your breath, your weight, your skin. Your sensations. Your ease or dis-ease. Let it talk. Listen. Don’t be afraid. It’s YOU you’re listening to.  Your body won’t lie. Your body won’t even LET you lie. Your spirit and your self communicate to you through this amazing body of yours. Maybe when you were little you were taught that everyone else’s needs were more important than yours. But right now, in this moment, can you hear your own needs in there? Or your own peace? Your own joy, sorrow? Sit with it. When you honor your own feelings, everybody wins.  Take a moment to be your best lover, your best friend. Is there a child in there? A you who has always known the truth about you? Maybe you are old enough to stick up for her now amd what she needs. Likewise, SHE is wise, SHE will lead the way for you. Ask her to take you by the hand. 💙today i went down a very tall waterslide, a few times, and remembered things I had forgotten. Good things. Don’t abandon that child in you. Nothing has changed. She is constant. And there’s so much she has to show you . Enjoy........#childhood #joy #innerchild #innerpeace #meditation #mindfulness #fun #feelings #peace  #drawing #relax #listen #spiritjunkies #selflove #selfcare #womenwhorunwithwolves #womensempowerment #stillness #fashionillustration #morningpages #selfesteem #expressyourself #emotionalintelligence #selfexpression #freedom

Today I went to Greece. Why isn’t there a gluten free baklava for us coeliacs 😢 although I enjoyed a wonderful chicken and veggies lunch. Yum.

Another book of #morningpages finished! 💕This one was slower than usual and took exactly 5 months to finish (I think it’s normally around 3 for me) as I fell off the wagon and stopped writing for a bit!
This is the practice I always come back to and can’t recommend enough to any creative, anyone with wobbly mental wellness, anyone who wants to know themselves better. 
3 pages each day of stream of consciousness writing. Dooo it. 
I’ve been wanting to finish this book for ages as it’s crinkled from being rained on and having coffee split on it 😂 but now it’s got the character of an ancient relic, so maybe I’ll miss that 💕

Working my way back to writing and art-journaling morning pages after a few days of motivational breakdown.

You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have to stop letting them control you. ~ Dan Millman⠀
⠀
This morning’s pages were a round with anxiety. In the last two years, I’ve had my first real experiences with anxiety. Now I know that a very large part of my anxiety is due to #HashimotosDisease, which I have recently been diagnosed with but believe I have been suffering with for at least a decade, if not two. I have resisted medication for the anxiety, preferring to deal with it in more natural ways - exercise, rest, better food choices, hydration, meditation, writing - but there are moments when it is still overwhelming...when I feel paralyzed and crippled by fear. ⠀
⠀
When all I want to do is curl up in a ball and hide under the covers, I push myself forward. I have a fear of heights but when I was a middle school teacher in Reno, I would walk across the Golden Gate Bridge Wib my students. One of my students once asked my why I would walk/run with them across the bridge when I was scared, and my response was that I didn’t want to let fear rule my life...that Eleanor Roosevelt quote about doing the thing you think you cannot. And so it is with my anxiety. I get up. I go. I do. Even though I am a roiling mess inside. Writing about my anxiety helps tame it and ramp it down. ⠀
⠀
Today I will get a shower, get dressed, and go celebrate a little one’s birthday which will be followed by #2ndSaturday fun & #Fridafest. What are you doing today that you think you cannot?

I love my journals. Irrationally. Brown Midori TN filled with my favorite inserts: TN inserts with Tomoe River paper. I love that for #morningpages and other journaling. The Chic Sparrow Mr. Darcy holds Moleskine Cahiers that I use for note-taking, research, writing first draft ideas. The Nude Filofax holds print-outs from online files that I can hole-punch.
