We all feel it from time to time…not at the top of our game. Anyone feel like they are always riding cloud 9? Alright, I’ll give it to you, most of the time you feel you’ve got your stuff together, all worked out and every thing is hunky dory. Are you going to tell me then that you never hit a rut, that you never feel you’re sitting at the bottom of the sea in total darkness. Can you allowing yourself to go there, sit at the bottom of the sea, in the space where it feels light can barely make it too you? Then once you sit there, give yourself the time and space to just feel the blues, then get it together? Personally, I think we have to let ourselves plummet, breakdown, fall apart, this way we re-callibrate to our heart. Sometimes we just have to give ourselves a time limit…15 minutes I’m going to play the blues, but after the time passes you have to have your next step. Go for a walk, read inspirational quotes, cook a healthy meal, donate a pile of things you no longer need. All the while remembering that you are stellar and if you’re hanging out with anyone that doesn’t encourage the radiance of your blazing heart, then consider saying goodbye to the relationship, person or habit. Anytime I have felt a breakdown, the only thing that has worked is to feel less than stellar for a short bit, then do something about it. If I pretend like I am not feeling this way, or worse, convince myself that I shouldn’t be feeling this way, the blues keep playing in the background. If there is a layer of acceptance, the ability to bounce back greatly increases and you’ll get back to your brilliant self in no time!
