Many of us moms are in a hurry to feel 💙 better.
I get it…life can be painful and hard.
We don’t want to feel upset, frustrated, disappointed, or angry so we try to stop the emotions by getting them over as fast as possible.
→ We get frustrated that our kids aren’t listening.
→ Wish we weren’t yelling so much.
→ Feel awful and want to feel better and do better now!!
So we eat a brownie, push the emotion away, avoid the situation, and hope things will go better tomorrow.
Most of us weren’t taught that slowing down and feeling the emotion was how we’d start feeling better. 💛
It seems like welcoming the emotions in, would cause the “negative” emotions to stay longer.
So we keep stuffing, 😔 avoiding, and reacting to our emotions instead of feeling them and things don’t change.
Because we don’t change by avoiding and rushing through our life.
When things start to feel uncomfortable…
👉 We need to slow down.
👉 Where need to be where we are.
👉 We need to feel what we feel.
👉 We need to understand why we don’t feel good.
👉 We need to become aware of what’s causing the unrest.
👉 We need to ask, why the unrest?
👉 Why am I feeling this way?
👉 Why the painful thoughts?
👉 We need to sit in it for a while, process it, notices, let our body feel it.
Be with it for as long as it takes to feel it all the way through.
The goal isn’t to feel better fast.
🚀🚀 THE GOAL IS TO FEEL! ☀️☀️
We feel better by allowing ALL our emotions.
The positive ones and the negative ones.
This is how we understand ourselves.
🙌 We gain awareness.
We notice 🧐 our resistance.
🧠 We get curious and dive into where we are and why.
And then we begin to gain 👊 authority over it.
We stay with it.
Slow down even more.
There isn’t anything to escape, avoid, or hide from. 🤩
There is just understanding, and through that understanding comes freedom. 💗💗💗💗
