It is officially over. The Pillars of Transformation course has wrapped up and I'm going to review what I learned over the past 6 weeks.
I have been lucky. I personally went through many of these steps years ago when I began my self-love journey. However, there have been moments in my life when I have lost focus and fell back into my old habits. This course was a way for me to regain control of those parts of my life.
6 WEEK COURSE: PILLARS OF TRANSFORMATION
I love that this course started out with a focus on gratitude. Gratitude can change your life in so many ways. I have restarted my gratitude list daily. Every morning I wake up, meditate, prepare my kids' lunches, and sit down with my journal. I write 5 things over the past 24 hours that I am grateful for. It reminds me daily that even if I wake up in a bad mood, there is so much in my life to be thankful for. It changes the outlook of my day.
Week 2 covered boundaries. This is something that I am still working on and will be for a while. There are certain boundaries that I am great with and then others where I completely fail at. I know that having strong boundaries will mean that I can accomplish more in a day and feel more appreciated but they are still something I struggle with daily.
Week 3 covered food. This is such a big topic for women. I just had this conversation with a couple of my friends on how what we are eating and how people around us (even those we don’t know) judge us. I want to teach my children that food isn’t the enemy. We can enjoy sweets and healthy food without feeling guilty. I believe that there is a guilt that comes with eating both foods and I want to help alleviate that.
There have been moments over the past 6 weeks that we ate out more than we should have but it is all about recognizing our patterns. I find that if I don’t feel well or if I am swamped with work, I don’t want to cook. There are times that I have to remind myself how much I love to be in the kitchen and to just get in there and cook. Reminding myself that I love to create meals that my family enjoys makes me feel good. It is a stress reliever for me and an activity in my life that brings me joy.
Week 4 covered movement. My intention with this week was to add intentional movement daily. For me, that meant bringing back yoga into my life. I have started doing a 30-day yoga challenge on YouTube. I have also downloaded an app to my phone called, FitOn. I haven’t done a workout on it yet but the choices of different types of workouts are amazing. I will be trying it out today. I love the feeling that yoga has brought back into my life. It has helped to bring more calmness into my life.
Week 5 was decluttering. Since we moved in September, I have been working on decluttering my home. It is not easy with 3 kids and a husband who wants to keep everything “just in case”. I am finding my rhythm and flow of getting rid of things. My anxiety levels go down when there is less clutter. I feel like I can concentrate on my business and on my kids when stuff doesn’t feel like it is taking over. The best reminder for this week was that clutter is more than things in your physical world. It includes your mental world as well as your social media world.
