It’s been one of those weeks. You know, when you want to cry, scream and/or just take a break from life. It was clear to me that my inner child was trying to get my attention and it worked.
As I slowed down and paid more attention to the young part of me I realized that she had a huge message for me. It was one of those feelings that felt life altering. As this sank in it became clear that reaching out to trusted others was the best way to take care of myself in the moment. I needed someone to really hear what I had to say, someone to share in this life-altering discovery so that I could gain a clearer perspective on the big picture.
I contacted two people, a dear friend who later left a voicemail message for my inner child and a trusted colleague who pointed out the tremendous gift that my inner child was offering me. I’m so glad I realized that this was not the time to go it alone.
My inner child wanted to know that I loved her enough to reach out to others whom I trusted in a time of tremendous need. Feeling like we must do it ALL on our own can be a deterrent to self-love.
Love comes in many shapes and sizes ~ a helping hand, a kind word, a listening ear, a beautiful smile. The helping hand, kind word, listening ear, and beautiful smile can be our own or from someone else.
As Louise Hay says, “Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.” I invite you to take the time to listen to yourself to determine if loving yourself in the moment includes reaching out to others you trust.
