Day 9: Flu

“You cannot heal in the same environment where you got sick”

I think that this one is pretty self explanatory. I think that many of us have heard that popular phase, “Don’t go back to what broke you expecting to be fixed” or something like that. This phrase relates to me as I get over my breakup in the sense that the stress from the relationship and the after effects have made me sick mentally through overthinking and emotional pain. In order to move forward, it would serve me best not to look to the past for answers and solace, but to move forward in a more positive light. It takes time to get over sickness and in this case grief is my form of sickness. I need to change my environment (mindset) in order to cure myself of the pain and to grow stronger for the future.

Day 7: Next

“Your next blessing depends on what you leave behind”

Sometimes it is challenging to see that you need to leave something or someone that is so important to you behind in order to see growth in your life. Sometimes, in order to see these changes or personal growth, we do have to leave behind the things and people that no longer serve us. The minute that we release this into the universe, we are able to envision a different future and outcome for ourselves. This will leave us open to discovering our next blessing in any form by which it comes. Leave behind the past in order to be blessed in the future. Honour and work on  yourself in the present.

Let Them Go

This is my Health and Wellness tip of the day: let them go.

Let go of the people who no longer serve a purpose in your life in order to grow.

Don’t get bitter and think that they weren’t for you and that’s why they are gone. Think about the fact that they were for you for a time and that you now need to let them go because you both need to grow.

Thank them, whether internally or externally, for the time and role they spent in your life and then keep on letting your heart be thankful for them walking in and out when they did. Every one you meet that touches you has the power to transform and change your life. Grow and show yourself the power you have gained from their presence. Do not dwell in their non existence in your space, but flourish in YOUR gratitude of their existence in the world. For you would not have had the lessons you had if they were not there, nor would you have been able to find the tools to grow that you needed.

Be thankful and let them go. More people will come, that is a fact. Learn and let go of the ones who have finished teaching you how to be good to all the others.

Almost Over You

I haven’t always been a Jessie James Decker fan music wise, however, this song from her new album Southern Girl City Lights is an amazing one. Almost Over You is a country love song performed by Decker and fellow country musician, Randy Houser. Throughout dealing with my breakup, I have found myself listening to this song quite a bit. The combination of Decker and Houser’s voices make this song such a masterpiece, and paints colour with the lyrics. Whether or not your heart is broken, this is a song worth listening to.

 

Your Majesty

Today is one of my more sad days – it is the last day of my relationship. I have been listening to different songs and reflecting upon how I feel and I keep on playing songs from Zac Brown Band. At this difficult time, they are all resonating with me, well, the ones that I like are. Your Majesty  is one of the bands newer songs and I am really enjoying its composition. The lyrics are truly beautiful and catchy and make you feel emotions. Its easy to tie this song to a person or event or spiritual sense just by following the lyrics. Anyways, I hope that this song brings a sense of calm and peace to whatever your day brings. Remember, that there is beauty in all things, even the saddest things at the most heartbreaking times.
