Safe Harbour

Picture credit to Dirk Verschure

This picture may resonate deeply with you however it doesn't have to be this way. No matter how much you have happening in your life. As a mum of 4 who has had to dance with children with disabilities and special needs, chronic illness and a myriad of sometimes crazy circumstances, I understand the complexities that life brings. And I completely understand how easy it is to slip into overwhelm when life is being relentless. I used to struggle to find my equilibrium in amongst the chaos of merely surviving which is how I felt I was living at times. I can honestly say I don't feel that way anymore. I am no longer simply surviving. I have tough days and sometimes tough weeks, however, I am the captain of my mind and steer it to calmer waters when life's waves are coming in thick and fast. Mindfulness is a gift I will be forever grateful for. Without mindfulness I would not have had the space to discover self-compassion in its fullness. Mindful self-compassion is an expansive oasis where I am able to find safe harbour from the storms of life and the battering from the deceptive winds of self-doubt and judgement. It clears and calms the waters so I am able to see my true reflection. Mindfulness is not an overnight or an easy fix. It is discipline and choice daily. Self-compassion is courageous work and sometimes confronting. It is an honest internal yet liberating voyage of self-discovery. I invite you to come along.
