Over the coming days and weeks I am sharing with you about my return to sanity after a MASSIVE year in biz where I really burnt the candle at both ends and was in desperate need of a reboot hence I started OPERATION #lovingpeta Enjoy!
So last month my business had the biggest growth ever, the most new members we’ve had in one month, the most rank advancements in my team, the best paycheck and best month for me personally as I enrolled the most people ever (over 20) but I spent the month of November feeling absolutely miserable. Too miserable to enjoy the successes of my team, my business and my personal achievements - Why?
Do you know what I do to myself when I’m exhausted?
I find all the ways that I can prove to myself how much of a failure I am, it’s brutal, I completely derail myself. I have been the most unkind, unsupportive and unloving person to myself without even realising it in November and it was only after I recorded my stats that it hit me….Wow I can’t even let myself feel good about what I’ve created with my team.
I was so stuck in feeling like a leaders arsehole that I just couldn’t even see the good.
I knew I had been pushing and building and working so hard towards my Diamond goal that there was just no room for self-care until I reached this point of exhaustion where even the thought of those self care activities like a stroll on the beach or meditating felt too hard and too much work.
My cup felt well and truly EMPTY, depleted, bone dry, cracked, and almost broken.
And so OPERATION #lovingpeta has commenced.
40 days of Daring to Rest - a daily practice of Yoga Nidra (or lying down to rest in a yogic slumber) A program by Karen Brody.
After reading a friend’s post where she was describing exhaustion of another kind but exhaustion none-the-less and that she had stumbled across this program of REST, I thought that’s exactly what I need.
So today I did my first 20 minutes of lying down to REST and listened to a guided yoga nidra.
When prompted to set an intention and listen to the whispers of my soul - something that used to come so easily to me was out of my grasp - buried. But instead of beating myself up about it with inner dialogue of “you can’t even get that right” I told myself “it will come, for now dear woman - just rest, be kind to yourself and give yourself some love”. My body was treated to some all over body tingles and releasing the first layer of physical exhaustion - it was profound.
To accompany me was the gorgeous duo Rose Essential Oil and Copaiba Essential Oil which I’m calling my #lovingpeta blend
