She is still in there, that same woman who laughed until she cried, shopped until she dropped and had a lot of fun during the things that brought her joy.
Fun like dancing, singing and visiting the local boutiques. Designing, decorating, and going to the coffee house to have a cup of coffee or tea.
Spending all day at the bookstores checking out the latest must reads, magazines, and journals.
Hanging out with her friends and catching up on the latest what’s going on in everyone’s life.
Finding new recipes and trying them out. Having potlucks so everyone can try each other dishes and just enjoying life! She is still there.
She just got buried, under all the responsibilities she had on her plate. She just got buried, with the cares of her life.
She just got buried under the negative chatter that fed her thoughts with lies, telling her that she had lost it, her beauty, her charm, her charisma, the romance, connection, communication and the attention in her marriage.
She just got buried, under her superwoman exterior that she puts on everyday. She just got buried, under hormonal imbalance.
She just got buried, under emotional eating to numb the pain of her dreams laying dormant inside her. She just got buried, under going to the same unfulfilling job that she goes to everyday.
She just got buried, under the same old routine that does not have spontaneity in it. She just got buried, under giving to everybody else and not giving back to herself.
She just got buried, with the grief of a loved one passing, she just got buried, under living with a sickness or disease in her body. She just got buried, under going through a divorce. She just got buried, under living with loneliness, envy, bitterness, unforgiveness and rejection.
She just got buried, under being a wife, mom, caretaker, boss, homeschool moma, leader and an influencer. She just got buried.
But she is still there!
She is still vibrant and alive. She still have that twinkle in her step and sparkle in her eyes.
She is just as attractive, sexy, alluring and confident as she was when she was in her 20s’.
She still have that same laugh, you know that laugh when your belly tightens and tears rolls down your face.
Give her a reason to have joy again. Give her permission to live again. Take your mind back from anyone and anything that is making you feel like you can’t breathe.
Here are 5 things you can do to make her feel alive again.
1. Make yourself first priority! Invest in you again. Love on you again! Stop those sabotaging thoughts that you take on everyday and give them back to the devil! No more having self-pity and feeling sorry for yourself.
Girl, you have got to get up and live again. You stopped caring about what makes you truly happy! Pick back up those things that once brought you joy! Take care of yourself.
2. Start with a simply spa treatment, in your own bath tub. Buy you a big luxury bar of moisturizing body soap, and click this link to get a spa treatment formula.
3. Set a schedule for yourself and include you as top priority, right under spending time with God. Write out a list of all the things you love doing and include those things in your schedule.
I hear you saying, “I don’t have enough time to do that.” That is why you are creating a schedule for yourself, because you get to choose what you want to do and how you want your day to go.
Yes, schedule your responsibilities in your schedule as well, but if something comes up that conflicts with your me time, say no to it.
In fact, I want you to cut the phone off when you are doing something for yourself. You are in an important meeting and will not be able to answer the phone.
Let your family know that you have decided to start taking care of yourself properly and you would not be available to answer the phone until you are done with your appointment. They would love you more for taking care of yourself. They will have a new happier and healthy woman in their life.
4. To find yourself again requires you to pour your heart out to God and be transparent. Prayer and writing in a journal is a good place to do that.
Sometimes women are feeling guilty for having strong emotions about a certain situation, but God already knows how you feel, so do not hide it from him, and do not hide it from yourself. Try and get clear as to why you are feeling this way.
After you have explored what is causing you stress, unhappiness, lost of joy, not feeling alive in your life and discontentment, I want you to answer these questions;
What do I need to do to feel better about this situation?
What do I really want?
How do I really want to feel?
When the answers comes to you, work towards implementing the answers you receive right away.
5. Research areas in your life that you want to improve in, for example, if you want to start back looking and dressing fashionable, go on Pinterest.com and look at pictures of fashion that ladies your age are wearing.
You can go to your local book store and buy fashion magazines, or you can check out fashion magazines and books at your local library.
You can also go on Youtube.com and type in the search button the topic you are interested in.
You can do this for any area of your life you want to improve in.
I would advise you to go to the Bible first and see what Gods word says about the subject and then look at other sources that are Biblically sound.
You can do this to improve your communication, sex life, attractiveness and connection with your husband.
You can read books about marriage, how to forgive, your appearance, how to put yourself first, healthy eating, natural things you can do to cure certain diseases, pray, fasting and working out ect.
The goal here is for you to get your sparkle back and for you to truly feel alive in your life.
