There are many obstacles that prevent us from making positive changes. Lack of time. An unsupportive environment. Unsupportive others.
You want to make a positive change. You want to stop drinking. You want to start sleeping better. You want to set healthier boundaries. You want to carve out time to work on your novel. You want to get up earlier. You want to change jobs. You want to start your own business.
It's hard enough to practice self-compassion when life is a hum of usual activity. When our world explodes, it feels impossible.
Sometimes, we don't want to talk about how we're feeling. Maybe we can't find the words to express our emotions. Maybe they're too overwhelming. Maybe we're too exhausted. Maybe we just can't pinpoint what's really going on.
An excellent way to nourish ourselves is to connect to our creativity, to follow what we're curious about, to use our hands (and hearts), to let our imagination run wild and free.
