I started a wonderful course called BLOOM this week, and today’s post is dedicated to just sharing some wisdom that I found out on the first week, because I feel like it’s really invaluable!
This is life advice, this isn’t stuff you hear at school. This is experience. I love you all so much, and I believe that every single one of you deserves to live your best life, and I want to do anything I can to help with that!
The course runs for eight weeks and was created by the wonderful Kaitlin Howitt.
It’s quite popular.. I think there’s about 23 of us BLOOM girls all up. Apparently, in the first ever intake, there were around 100 girls, which is just massive. It’s definitely going to be a great opportunity to make like minded friends, and I just find that so exciting.
Kaitlin is a gorgeous soul and I’m so lucky to have this opportunity to benefit from what she’s learnt. The course is paid, so I can’t share any video from it, but I took the time to write down lots of notes, which is what you’ll be seeing here, except in a shorter and more succinct form!
The way I’m thinking of doing these posts is going to look something like this: One post for topics I relate to more and have longer notes on, and maybe a combined post for topics I have less notes on 🙂
let’s get into it!
+ what self love really is
Self love is a lot more than a hot bath or an early bedtime.
It’s a commitment to self.
It’s something deeper.
Self love is something that we are born with, in fact.
When we’re little, we adore ourselves. We look at our reflections with curiosity, not hate and negativity.
So what happened?
As we grow older, that’s when we forget what self love feels like. We lose our self honour and self nurture. We think we never had self love when in reality it is so deeply ingrained within us.
Deep down though, we know self love and the places it resides, especially on our good days. We need to do everything we can to hold onto that.
The truth is that we are love. We are already that pure love. But do we show up and be that every single day? do we actively choose it?
It isn’t the love that’s lacking, but more so the actions that show it.
+ deep seated belief systems
+ women as role models
+ the miracle of our being
The whole process of pregnancy, the fact that YOU were created. Every single part of you is the way it is.. that’s not by chance. It was meant to be.
+ your truth- this is what you owe yourself!
+ obligation & alignment
+ conscious living
And that doesn’t mean being selfish.
+ checking in
Questions to ask yourself when in situations:
+ what to expect
+ your journey in relation to others
+ the difference between alignment and disalignment
The way we apply this to life:
+ morning momentum
When you fall asleep at night, everything freezes.
When you wake up, it restarts.
