"Tension is who you think you should be, relaxation is who you are." Chinese Proverb
I think most of us know already that we are harder on ourselves than anyone else could possibly be. The efforts we put forth are usually not good enough and we keep striving for perfection. What is this inner drive that can make you crazy if you let it? Where does it come from? I certainly do not believe that God puts that kind of pressure on us. I believe we are all perfect just as we are. Yes, there are times when we get overwhelmed due to taking on too much or when others seem to be expecting things of us and we are responding to that by saying yes when it should be a no. We had just started out for the day when my phone started blowing up. Text after text from a dear client who needed some reassurance that everything was working perfectly and that she was safe. A few breathing exercises and self affirmations later and crisis was averted. I was that client for so many years. When life appears to have such a stronghold on you, it is because it is allowed to happen. I was constantly choked and not enjoying the living part at all. Now I take my stress in small doses instead of all at once!
Dear Angels, we could use some words of wisdom about expectations please.
Dear Ones, you are the only one who sets the bar that you strive to work with. You are either flexible or rigid in your thinking. When you feel that urge inside to take on more, to please others or yourself, you do not have to always give in right away. Consult with your team of guides, angels and support family to see what that truly looks like. Ask someone you trust to be your accountability partner and especially to help you work through decision making. Remember that you are not alone. Ever. We are always here for you.
Dear Angels, having an accountability partner has come up so much lately. I feel it is a huge message for me. Thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
