“Nourishing yourself in a way that helps you blossom in the direction you want to go is attainable, and you are worth the effort.”
~ Deborah Day
I was going to keep writing about owls and fairies and those sorts of things, but I can’t this morning. Instead I have to go to work.
Just before I woke this morning I dreamed about a client who I’ve known so long now that I consider her a dear friend. In my dream her phone accidentally speed dialled me while I was out in the paddock on the farm. I wasn’t far from the house so I ran back inside but the phone cut out before I could get to it.
I played the message back, and I knew my friend was out shopping and was having a heart attack without realising what was going on.
When I called her back the phone didn’t answer and I didn’t know where she was to send help.
This event hasn’t happened yet. But it’s about to. She’s already feeling unwell. She has already experienced some nausea and tightness in her chest. And honestly, she’s been heading this way for years, and knows she should be doing something about it, but she always tells herself she’ll get around to it just as soon as (insert anything that is vaguely about doing things for other people or meeting work deadlines first). She’s 38. That’s so young. And all of this journey was avoidable.
So this morning I need to contact my friend.
And in the meantime I have a message for YOU.
Take care of yourself. Parent yourself. Do the things you know you need to do to get your health back on track. Eat a healthier diet. Get support from health care practitioners you trust. Get your weight under control. Reduce your stress levels. Get more sleep. Address the underlying emotional issues that are causing you distress. And stop putting everyone and everything before yourself.
Life is precious. You are precious. So much magic awaits. But you have to be here, and healthy, to take advantage of that. We need you and your beautiful gifts in the world, It’s not to late to turn this around. Self care, self nurture, new priorities and some support. That’s all that’s needed. You can do this. You need to do this.
Sending much love to you, Nicole xx
