Self Love & Winter
Hibernating during the Winter isn’t just for bears…
One of my teachers, Joanna Lindenbaum, taught me the importance of properly going through the Winter phases of your life.
Most cultures glorify the SPRING.
SPRING is a time of starting new projects and when the breath of new love is in the air. It’s a time of taking action, planting seeds, and making things happen.
But we can’t forget that we must go through WINTER to get to SPRING.
Going through the WINTER means:
Letting Go & Releasing
Rest & Rejuvenation
Going inward & Reflecting
All of this is necessary to go through at various times in our lives so we can come out on the other side fully ready for SPRING again.
We want to be able to release ourselves and our work back out into the world full of energy, hope, and excitement.
But, we can’t do that if we don’t properly go through the WINTER.
After learning this concept at one of Joanna’s retreats,
I decided that spending a few months at home would be just what I needed to create some deep healing, rest, and rejuvenation.
I’m here in New York right now with the sole purpose of hibernating for WINTER. Bears do it all the time so, why can’t I?
Today, my man was helping me do some deep Shadow work and Sister-wound healing today on Facetime....
During a moment of profound breakthrough and vulnerability, he broke into song and started singing Shallow from A Star is Born... (i know, right!!??).
What is my life right now?
I'm working through a lot of Grief and difficult feelings most people would rather process with drugs, booze, and sex. (TBH, the thought has crossed my mind a few times)....
Yet, here I am... swimming in it, riding the waves, and bathing in the stench of my own shit.
What did I do to deserve a life and partnership like this?
What did I do to create the privilege of being able to travel home, hibernate for winter, and work through things?
I know what I did.
I worked really fucking hard.
I walked away.
I told the Truth.
I called myself out.
I cried my eyes out instead of numbing out at bars.
I faced my demons (and won).
THIS IS WHAT SELF-LOVE IS ALL ABOUT.
This is the part of growing most people don't like to talk about... but I find it my duty to shed light on these things to help more people come out of hiding and release shame.
I'm writing my #SelfLoveStory every day.
In the process, I’m helping others do the same and I'm creating amazing content I can't wait to have you devour.
Thank you for being here.
I love you.
