No matter who you are, no matter how strong, there are times even the fiercest parts of you need to take rest.
Know that retreating to give yourself time takes courage in itself.
Any who push or scorn you for your absence are not your tribe.
Fix your oxygen mask first.
Own and champion your life my friend.
It’s called a ‘feed’ make sure you are fuelled by it instead of becoming the ‘feed’ and sacrificing your wellbeing to project an image that isn’t aligned with your current needs or truth.
It’s not a race, don’t compete, CREATE.
Sometimes what you need to create is space so you can fill again.
Take care of your amazing, unique self.
– Dr Lynika Cruz
So don’t beat yourself up when you’re going through some of the less enjoyable bits…
Life is a medley.
No matter what you do there will be easier and not so easier times.
What matters is that you back yourself.
24/7 you have your human self to care for.
Treat that being with integrity and respect.
Your self care impacts the whole world for the greater good.
It makes you a whole being who by proxy gives permission and inspiration for others to do the same.
Take care of yourself and shine on my friend
Dr Lynika Cruz
“Acceptance will free you.
You don’t have to like something to accept it… but make no mistake, it WILL free you.
Break away from anything that ties a noose and grab your life in both hands. No matter what shape it’s in now, honour it for sticking by you.
Now go out there with all that you have, the good, the sad, the difficult, the glad… it’s brought you to this exact place on the map where you stand now.
Take the steps and keep walking.
Do it in honour of what you’ve lost, in respect for what you’ll become.
Live it W I D E and deep.” ~ Lynika
