Today’s guespost comes from Sile Walsh. We invite you to read this and experience it, grab a cup of your favourite warm drink, hide away in a quiet spot and prepare to explore …
What do the following words conquer up for you?
Stop and take a breath a moment, and notice what impact these words have for you.
Take another breath and notice the images that come to mind.
Breathe again and notice what emotions come forward.
Lastly take a breath, what thoughts do you have when you focus on the term ‘woman’s wellness’.
Sit for a moment and soak up whatever these words bring you to.
Did anything surprise you when you did this?
Did anything show you where you may be out of sync with your own wellness as a woman? Did your mind conquer up excuses or did it conquer up images of what looks like a fairytale in comparison to your current life? Did you even have a space in your life where your wellness is even on the agenda?
I have to admire the women around me, always giving, doing and caring but if I am really honest I have felt let down in the past by this image of a female role model, I have seen a double standard. I have watched smart, empathic, intuitive and loving women give every ounce of what they have to the world until they have no more to give but seldom have I seen these woman turn this kindness inwards.
This kindness is deserved as much by us as by anyone else we love and it can only be given to us by us! Where did we learn that it’s all about giving?
What happens when we have no more to give? Why do we wait to be worn out before we are willing to say no?
Again take a moment, a breath and see what this is stirring within you? Mull it over, feel it and acknowledge your thoughts…..
There is another way, another way you can be more available, be more present, feel better with in your-self and live in a way that honours you and the ones you love equally ( it is not a case of one or the other). It starts with a slight shift in perspective, gentle self-care, internal dialog and an offering of basic kindness to your-self.
It’s this thought process that inspired a conversation which led onto a woman’s wellness morning, for woman by woman. It would be beautiful to have you and some friends join us on the day to explore these areas. Information can be found at http://www.silewalsh.com/womans-wellness-workshops.html
