Life can be pretty uncomfortable at times.
Do you ever feel like there’s no place for you? Not just you, but all of the other versions of you…at the same time. Maybe you like the outdoors, but like me you wouldn’t dare to step outside in the winter.
Who needs below freezing when you can hibernate…right?
Or maybe you’re more of a homebody, but home just isn’t as homey as you’d like it to be? Especially if you’re now working from home!
Where do you go when you need space for only you? No pets, no work, kids, lovers, bills, so on so forth.
Allow me to say that there is nothing wrong with needing space from everything. Life gets pretty overwhelming when you’re always on the run. You should never give up on your personal marathon. Yet, you will need to stop by your favorite caves alongs your path, because you deserve to build yourself even when no one is looking.
It’s about time you make a safe space for yourself.
Find an area that makes you feel comfortable:
Go to your favorite park, room, cafe, or other quiet place that gives you time to be yourself. It can be outside of your home. If you have multiple places, that’s even better! If you can not find a place that makes you feel comfy, know that you are your own space as well. The way you perceive comfort, is uniquely designed for a unique YOU.
Personalize your Space:
Do something that makes your chosen space, a place for you, even if you share it. Bring your favorite items, and dress up the area while you’re there. Play some music or don’t. And a little aromatherapy can’t hurt. My safe space is my own living room. Even though I may share this space, I personalized a large part of this room to make it my personal dojo. There I set my altar, my candles in every corner of the room, aroma tools all over the house, and crystals in every facet of my home, especially the living room.
Make time regularly to self-care:
Don’t just think of your safe space. Go there…often! 2020 taught most of us the importance of taking care of ourselves while dealing with a sky full of problems. Exploding with anger, stress, frustration, even depression isn’t worth the energy it takes to rebuild your wall of sanity if you could help to maintain your holistic health in the first place.
Now I know you have a lot of things on your plate, but you can’t do them all at the same time. Take it one step at a time, and not only make time for yourself, but also make that sacred space for your time to be worth it.
