I’m Honoring Myself and Giving Myself What I need

Hello fabulous you,

When I saw these flowers in the store I had to have them. I love yellow, especially during this time of the year. The color is so cheery, bright, fun. I feel so happy every time I look at my beautiful yellow flowers.

While I was taking these photos I was reminded that there are times when you just gotta give yourself what you need in order to get passed a challenging time. I don’t know why but, they reminded me that there’s a season for everything and sometimes honoring the season you’re in, is the best thing you can do for yourself.

March was a very challenging month for me health wise. I had an infection, a result of living with IC, and it wasn’t until two weeks ago that my doctor took another test and it came back positive so, I’ve been on antibiotics and thankfully I’m better now. But, for the last couple of weeks especially, I’ve been trying to write my blog post for today and every day went by and I didn’t. I didn’t feel inspired, I didn’t feel creative, I had no energy or desire to write anything. I started something and deleted it a few times, I couldn’t think and the words wouldn’t come. 

During this time I was putting all kinds of pressure on myself to write my blog post and then I was reminded that, sometimes that’s just how it is, you just need a rest for whatever reason, especially if you’re not feeling well. So, I’m honoring what I need with no judgement, no beating myself up, no placing huge pressure on myself to get it done, instead I’m going with the flow of what I seem to need right now and that’s giving myself, rest.

So today, this is your invitation to honor the season you’re in and give yourself what you need without judgement.

I hope this post inspires, and serves you. Share your thoughts and leave a comment below, I love comments.

Wishing you a happy and bright weekend & week ahead.

  1. Hello Masha! Sorry to hear you haven’t been well but I am very glad you are feeling better. The bright yellow flowers should definitely put a smile on your face. Fall and winter can be a blah time of the year for sure and sometimes make you want to hibernate. I was kind of like that this year and barely wrote any posts. Once spring came and plants started coming up I felt more inspired. Seeing the wildflowers return and finding a few morels was even better. Rest and take time, my friend and realize you are an incredible person. Inspire yourself you you can continue to inspire others. 🙂

      1. Well, you know, sometimes when I feel a little blah and don’t feel like writing, I decide to read a few posts. I am very bad about not keeping up. Anyway, when I run across your posts it helps to lift me up. Your words of inspiration are always encouraging. 🙂 Then I know why I started reading posts. Because yours is there. 🙂

  2. Have you ever seen Carol Dweck’s TED Talk, Masha? It’s about growth mindset vs. closed mindset. Good stuff:). Sounds like you flipped to a growth mindset and are reaping the benefits! Good for you!
