HOW TO WAKE UP YOUR INNER GODDESS
You wake up and the only thing you think about is a cup of coffee. It’s really the only thing you can allow yourself to think about because you’re tired, and you’re stressed and you really don’t want to be getting up in the first place anyway. Damn Mondays, and damn the work and damn the chores. It’s not always that bad, of course, but sometimes, only sometimes, you really wonder if this is the life you’re going to have 00forever. Is there nothing more?
As a woman, you must feel and think and act a certain way. Everyone else comes before you, you must work hard to please those around you, and you must always look beautiful. And then one day you wake up and realize that your skin is wrinkled and that the house is filthy and you feel guilt and worry about what others might think. But what about what you think and feel? If you’ve been unsatisfied with your life for a long time, it could be that a part of you is dormant, that little spark that makes you want to love and laugh and live. How do you wake your inner goddess and let her shine through?
SOOTHE YOUR SOUL THROUGH MEDITATION
Even if you spend only five minutes on it every day, that little time you separate for self-reflection and relaxation is priceless. If you find it hard to sit still and clear your head, that’s all the more reason why you really need this. Meditation is something that you need to build up to, something that requires patience. Start with five minutes a day for a week or two, and then you can slowly expand that time as you learn how to relax. Your thoughts don’t have to be empty either. The point isn’t to kill all thought, but merely to focus yourself away from anxiety. Reach out to the part of you that you’re scared to look at. Invite that being that wants and craves, don’t stifle it. Allow yourself to feel things, allow yourself to embrace every last part of you, even the bad bits. It’s the only way you can truly make a change.
EXERCISE TO INVIGORATE YOUR BODY
Exercising is truly one of the best ways for women to reconnect with their own inner goddess. The health benefits are amazing, but that’s hardly the only reason you should do it. Exercising is one of the ways that can help you get in touch with your body and learn about its limits. You can do anything, from yoga and running, to weight lifting. However, one of the best ways to work out, especially if you’ve been feeling down, is dancing. There is nothing like moving your body to the beat, feeling the music and getting lost in it. Enrolling in adult dance classes can boost your mood and make you feel good about yourself, and they are more fun than the gym. Get in touch with your inner goddess by cherishing your body, looking at its flaws and realizing that you love every last one of them. Don’t allow guilt and negative body image to degrade your self-esteem.
NURTURE YOUR INTERESTS
We often let other people tell us that our hobbies are foolish or stupid. Do you like romance novels? Well, you must be crazy and delusional. Do you like football and craft beer? You’re just trying to be a man. The point is, don’t let others tell you what you should or should enjoy. Does it make you happy? If yes, then whose business is it but yours? If your hobby is murdering small bunnies then, sure, people should comment on it and tell you to stop. But if it’s not harming anyone, why would you let them talk you out of things that make you happy? It’s important to respect yourself and your own desires, to understand what gives you pleasure and relaxes you. Besides, your love of makeup can one day lead to you becoming a makeup artist and earning money from it. Your love of books could lead to you one day writing your own. Let yourself dream, because there’s nothing worse than a person who lost their dreams and only lives from day to day.
To wake up your inner goddess, you basically need to find a way to respect yourself more than anything. Your time, your health, your needs – all of this is important, for every single woman out there. From self-sacrificing mothers to busy career women, your mind, body and soul need to be in balance. You are a goddess and it’s time to start thinking of yourself as one.
