Tuesday Tips: 3 Powerful Ways To Healing Yourself

Healing yourself is a job for you; no one can do this for you! I had to learn this the hard way; as much as we want our loved ones to be by our side during this time, they can’t!!

Here are 3️⃣ powerful things you can do right now⤵️

▪️FORGIVE YOURSELF:
It is time to let it go. Forgive all parts of yourself to be whole and perfect. Forgive yourself for any past mistakes or shortcomings; forgive the child within for being afraid; forgive the teenager that spoke words of anger; forgive the young adult for not being a risk taker. Forgive others in the past. Forgive your parents, your siblings and relatives. Let go of all grudges. Forgiveness is about coming to peace within yourself…
(this was a hard one for me)😩

▪️ STAY IN THE PRESENT:
Live in the now. The past is gone. You can never go back and make it right. You can never re-live a life that was yesterday. Live positively in the present moment, no matter what is occurring. It is All right and perfect. Do not look ahead and dread what may come. Our mind creates a lot of chatter and makes us afraid in order to keep us safe. Tell your mind “Thanks for sharing” and affirm “I am here, I am present”. You are always at choice, and you know how to make this day beautiful…

▪️ LOVE YOURSELF BOO ❤️
Love yourself and use positive words of encouragement. Compliment strangers and make others smile. Speak from a loving heart and shine with joy. Remember, talk to yourself like you talk to your best friend who needs uplifting. Putting YOU first is a must if you are going to take care of others…

You won’t heal overnight, just be patient with yourself; you will get there!!

You got this👏🏾
