The Pink Lily

Shining bright against the window

Stealing a glimpse in your direction

Pink and loud

Peace for my overwhelmed mind.

*******************************

Busy bee, working Mama

Forgot about herself

Rushing at work for her existence

Caring of needs of others.

*******************************

Pink and dominant

Holding its ground

Bringing me back to reality

Mama breath and be present.

*******************************

The pink lily

Joy sparked in an instant

Catching the glare of the sun

To connect with my heart

*******************************

Be present.

Healing Journey

Every human being is the author of their own health or decease. Budha

I have been suffering from Chronic High Blood Pressure for the last 15 years, a lifetime, RIGHT! All these years I just surrendered to what the Dr’s prescribed or suggested, never taking responsibility for my own health. I can’t change the past now but my future is mine now. My slogan ” I Am Taking Power Back” has been my motivation.

Anxieties and feelings of overwhelm cause by my high blood pressure has been my friends for so long. I finally have these under control through Meditation, Tapping, Reiki and being mindful. It’s a continued journey of learning and adapting. Some days are easier than others but I have taken power back. This in itself is a victory.

I am actively taking care of myself, balancing family, work, social and spiritual foundations in my life. Making sure I am happy, time alone and I try not to overthink. I am still struggling with this, my mind is alway busy. Never resting. Study shows that we have 50 000 – 70 000 thoughts a day. Crazy! I

t has been 4 months of diet change, salt intake management, rest, exercise, homeopathy and consultations with an alternative medicine Dr. It does feel great to be in control. Knowing the plan and my expectations helps me to stay focused.

My biggest supporter is my husband, Graham. Honestly without him I don’t think I would have gone this far. Words of encouragement, praise and my voice of reason when I try to over achieve. I love you babe, for always being there. Looking at my babies is all the motivation I need to preserve their mother till old age.

It is a journey, a lifestyle change to have healthy and long lasting effects. Just live!
