3 Minute Retreat: Sacredness
/ˈseɪ.krɪd.nəs/ the quality of being considered holy and deserving respect, especially because of a connection with a god: I believe in the sacredness of all life.
“Whenever I'm faced with a vulnerable situation, I get deliberate with my intentions by repeating this to myself: "Don't shrink. Don't puff up. stand your sacred ground." Saying this little mantra helps me remember not to get too small so other people are comfortable and not throw up my armor as a way to protect myself.”
― Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection
Her words embody the posture of wholeheartedness that I long to cultivate in myself. I want to be humble, I want to be honest. I want to stand my sacred ground.
How do you stand in your sacredness daily?
Do you find it challenging?
Do you sacrifice yourself to fit into others opinions of you?
How can you embrace self respect to stand in the wholeheartedness that your journey deserves?

As women we are taught to make ourselves small, don’t argue, keep your opinion to yourself. But thankfully it is a new day!! I love this !! I have a tendency to throw up my armor now. I will try to stand my sacred ground without coming on too strong.

Thank you so much for sharing this awareness my friend! We all struggle to pause and look at ourselves honestly long enough to own our journey. But, when we do...we are blessed with gifts beyond measure along our personal journey.
