Sometimes you just need a moment


If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.

Hey, Lovelies.

I needed a moment yesterday.

I felt overwhelmed. I felt turbulent. I felt… too many things swirling around inside me.

Plus I was tired after a couple of anxious nights and not enough sleep.

I knew I needed a moment. A moment to regroup. A moment to fall apart and then gather myself back together.

It sounds dramatic, but it wasn’t. This has been an ongoing process over many years. My health status sometimes gets the better of me for a moment, so I need another moment to pause and reflect, feel my feelings, and then get my head back in the game.

I am much more gentle and non-judgmental with myself about needing a moment these days. I no longer see it as a sign of weakness. Instead, I see it as allowing myself a period of adjustment.

So, I made myself a cup of tea, and I sat for a while in the quiet.

It was actually a ‘two cups of tea’ sit.

After which I sat a bit longer.

I still feel a little melancholy, but I’ve got this. More tea, a nap, some journalling and a good walk on the beach should put me right.

What do you do when you need a moment?

  1. A walk at the beach for sure, time in nature, listening to the birds chirping, deep breaths for me and sometimes a quiet coffee out by myself at a friendly local cafe

  2. Thinking of you Nicole❤️‍🩹I am similar to you…cups of tea and often a potter in the garden to see what is going on in there. Sometimes I take myself out to a cafe on my own and really enjoy a coffee that someone else has made for me. Smile at the barista’s artwork on the creamy froth…often a love heart to remind me of how much I am loved and how much love there is in the world when you look for it and open yourself to seeing it and receiving it. Sending my love in a cup to you🤎
