So this is me, in the hat I wore everywhere, in every season, about the age my daughter is now.
I was fortunate in my childhood; I was loved and I was safe. I know that this is not a guarantee for all children. Because I had this, I had an unfettered time before self-consciousness, self-doubt and self-deprecation took root in my mind. When I look at this photo, I know this little girl had not a moment’s hesitation about putting that outfit together and leaving the house. Story goes, outfits like this happened often the summer my mom was in summer school and my dad left me to my own devices.
I envy her confidence. I envy her feeling totally at home in her own skin before any ideas that she shouldn’t feel that way crept in. I envy her freedom of movement without worrying what it looked like. I envy her singing without worrying doubt how it sounded. My daughter currently lives in this elusive stage of life, and I love to watch how she fully inhabits her body, and how she loves it.
Identifying fully with self-love is my main intention these days, and the intention which motivates my work with others. I LOVE the kid in this photo! I feel determined to create a life which she deserves. She’s still inside me and I am so excited to feel her start to shine again, undeterred by everyone who needs “her” to stay hidden so they can make their fortunes in the fertile soul of “my” self loathing. Getting more and more in touch with her over the past couple of years, has helped me set standards and create boundaries in my life. I feel more at peace and more confident to explore, and more open minded of the paths others follow.
If this is something you are longing for too, I would love to share with you all that has helped me so very much. Please message me for details on consultations for yoga, hypnotherapy and shiatsu, to learn more about how these modalities can facilitate returning to your natural state. Come back home to LOVE. We do have this choice. We just have to wish for it more than we wish to hold on to the doubt and the pain. Then the healing can begin. xo #WishpathYoga #WishpathHypnotherapy#WishpathShiatsu #ElephantBikinisRule #ShareYourPicOfYourWeeSelf🙏🏻💘👙GC
