“Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you” – Robin Sharma
We are always rushing to do one thing or another – rarely making time to pause, reflect and contemplate. There’s chores to be done, work to be completed, deadlines to meet, bills to pay, friends to catch up with and family to take care of. This list is endless. As we focus on these things – you’ll soon realise that most of the tasks within our day doesn’t focus on ourselves and our needs. We’re usually meeting someone else’s needs. Someone else’s expectations.
With all these daily tasks, it’s easy to lose a sense of ourselves and the divine within us. We forget that we are soul beings and our soul needs to be tended to as well as our body, our mind, our financial situation, our family and our external environment.
Some may think that to make time for your soul you need to fit a certain stereotype or dedicate so many hours per day to be spiritual or soul centred. But that’s where you’re wrong. Every single person on this planet is a soul centred being and all it takes is a moment of stillness to reconnect with that divine within us. That connection is to remind us that we are eternally good. That we are made of love. And that others around us are exactly the same.
In this fast paced environment, it is ever so urgent that we now take the time to turn inwards and take that time for reflection. I’ve said it so many times, but a simple, yet powerful way to create that soul connection is through a regular practice of meditation. Take the time to pause, truly sense your emotions and embrace the power within.
When you invest in yourself, it does not just have to be financially. It can also be by investing your time and energy on yourself to create a beautiful present moment. If you’re ready to dabble in some meditation, I want you to listen to this meditation. Take the time to meditate in the morning either sitting in bed or perhaps in nature. Trust me, you will be so happy that you started this practice.
