If you are a massage therapist with a home based biz, it's easy to feel defeated.
You are enough.
I am enough.
Right now. Exactly how we are.
You may have heard me say this, or a version of this before.
In my experience, I need to deeply connect with this message "I am enough" pretty regularly, in order to be able to bounce back from business challenges.
Any of these sound familiar?
Here's the kind of things my inner voice would say -
And sometimes, even now, my inner voice will whisper similar messages...
When I peel away the layers,
and dig deep
all of these whispers actually have the same theme...
"Barbara, you're not good enough"
Tricky inner voice.
I"m not buying into that.
And over the course of 20 years in this biz I've developed strategies that help me stop this cycle and bust free... and today I'm sharing one of these with you...
Kindness to self and exploring the meaning of this in relation to yoga.
For me it is considering 'doing less' approach - not less yoga, or less attention to detail, but a more slippery, less grasping for 'getting it right'.
This is particularly slippery as it is my style to try and tune into my body and the sensation of energy flow by following instructions rather intensely.
So kindness towards myself in this context is about balancing intense doing with relaxing and allowing ... which certainly is a balance challenge that flows into the rest of my life experience.
In this journey is valuable to be reminded "I am already enough" - and it's more about tuning in to that, polishing up the diamond, and accepting myself.
I appreciate the women in my life that remind me of this.
I choose to hang out with women who believe that we are all enough.
Women who are brave enough to admit it would be super helpful for someone to say it to them, help them remember.
Women who will generously say to me, 'you are enough' and give me a concrete example by sharing how they see me operate in the world.
