You can only do your best

RockSometimes life is hard, and you don’t know what to do to change things. This is when you need to be good to yourself and cut yourself some slack! You can only do so much and that is good enough. Don’t let anyone tell you, you ‘should’ do more than you can, because there is no love in that. Should is a dirty word that we don’t need, because it always contains guilt, and when things are rough; guilt is the last thing we need!

When times are hard

Lately things have been very demanding in my life so this post is just as much for me as it is for anyone else. Some friends have passed away very unexpectedly, and one friend is laying on her deathbed. I do all I can to be there for her family and to help as much as possible and sometimes I beat myself up for not being able to do enough, but then I have to take a step back and give myself some credit. If I keep doing that I will be of no help to anyone, and I’m doing the best I can!

Giving, loving, supporting, protecting is something we want to do for others, but we need to do it in equal measures for ourselves. If we just give and give and give, there is nothing left for ourselves and then we can’t give anymore. We just can’t give what we don’t have!

Keeping friends close

My friends and family are my support system, and without their help, love and support I would have crumbled by now. A big hug, or a shoulder to cry on is worth more than anything, when times are bad. People who care and just listen are more valuable than all the gold in the world. My wish for everyone is to have friends like mine. I don’t have many really close friends, but those I have I treasure and love to the moon and back, and my family is always there for me too.

Back to natureCrocus

Nature is another way to find energy and peace for me, and I believe that we all need to connect with nature, because we are all a part of it. Modern life in many ways separates us from nature and that might be a part of why so many people feel disconnected and have a hard time grounding themselves. Living in urban areas in many ways makes it hard to connect with nature, but we all need to try, or we will miss out on so much wonderful energy. We all really need that energy to fill ourselves up so we can be of service, because we are here to serve and help, others and ourselves. Mother earth made this system and we have messed it up, but we will get back there if we all work on it, the best we can.

  1. Kristina you are such a wonderful soul and light to many others.

    Your friends are so fortunate to have your support, love and caring.

    But as you stated there is so much you can give and so much you can do at the time.

    Yes, many times we forgot that we also need to step back and if anything to re-charge the batteries strengthen the energy within us.

    If we cannot strengthen ourselves from within then there would be nothing further to give to others either. It is not being selfish to take some time out for yourself but more of a need that will benefit all in the long term.

    Thank you for sharing what is close to the heart with your friends and yourself.

    You are an awesome soul and wonderful person.

    I for one am glad and honored to call you as a great and close friend. One that has become so proud of your talents and skills as seen here many times within your website but also as a fellow soul of the light.

    I am sending much light and love to you Kristina, your immediate family and your friends that are around you.
    You know how to connect and know that I am around should you need some timeout for yourself and re-charge.

    Namaste my friend love and light

    1. Hi Andre, thank you for your lovely comment. As always you know exactly what to say to make me feel better. We just came home after saying goodbye to my friend who passed this evening and I am exhausted but calm, as I know she is not gone. She has just left this earthly realm and gone to the light. Now we have to live without her and take care of those she left behind.

      You are such an inspiration with all the love that you are sending out into this world; always loving and supporting.
      It is my pleasure and honor to call you my lovely friend and to get to receive your help and support.

      I’m so proud of you and all you do all the time, and for the wonderful person that you are.

      Love and light always, dear friend
      Namaste, Kristina
