Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
My interesting month, January, which came with many learnings for me had this one too.
Exhausted, overwhelmed and on my hands and knees on the floor (this time it's no metaphor), I cried. My daughter turned to me and said 'you have a choice mum, you can either choose to be sad or you can choose to be happy'. I thanked her from my weariness and she told me that's what I'd have said to her. Oops!
Still, reflecting on it now I think she's right. I probably would have done. Hopefully slightly more gently with a little story around it perhaps. But beyond that we usually do. We may feel imprisoned, trapped and stuck but most of us may have a choice.
How often we forget that endorphins make a difference to our sense of wellbeing, forget to exercise and then wonder why we feel bad? How often we feed ourselves processed foods, lacking in life and are perplexed when our body feels tired and our mind less sharp than we'd like? How often we get stuck in our story, not realising that we are not our thoughts, they are just a part of us, and we can believe them or not?
Hmmm. I think she's right, my wise one, sent to teach me. And I thank her for that. And you for reading.
Wishing you a beautiful day ahead,
I'm a Homeopath working in the Skipton (North Yorkshire) area. I am also able to offer food intolerance testing using Kinesiology and advice around diet and lifestyle.
