I’ve never been one to read self-help books or any type of books where folk feel like they have to give another advise on how to get where they’re at. I’ve always felt like, who are you to tell me what I should or shouldn’t be doing. I’ve always felt like, I should be doing things on my own and for the most part I’ve have. Buuutttt, I’m also they type of person who lives inside her own head too much especially when things don’t work out how I expected them to. I’ve also felt like you know just because something worked for the person who wrote that book...doesn’t mean it’s to going to work for me? What if I fudge it all up? Then I would be back where I was wondering what the hell happened.
So what changed you ask? Well, it goes back to that little thing I said earlier about me being inside my head too much and I do...still do at times. I have this very bad habit of worrying about what folk think, you know? Why didn’t that relationship work out? Why doesn’t that person like me? If I only had been this way, would it had worked out different, things like that. So I felt like I had to do something, like something for me...in me had to change.
I came across Abiola Abrams via Instagram. A co-worker of mines recommended that I follow her and I must say, it has been a wonderful experience. Abiola is a life/spirit coach and motivational speaker. Following her on Instagram and eventually Youtube, she’s very much into meditation and healing your soul and mainly getting women back to loving themselves. I came across her book The Sacred Bombshell Handbook of Self-Love while visiting her website one day. I being the skeptical person that I can be at times decided to give it a go and you know what? I’m glad I did.
This book has helped me to look inside of myself and to also get out of my head. To stop worrying so much about what others think or say for that matter and mainly that life moves along no matter what the outcome of some situations in your life may be. There's a lot of exercises in the book as well. From mediation to breathing exercises, there is a bit of it all to help you to get back to loving YOU. She also interviews many other spiritual coaches who offer some of their meditations and website links as well. We sometimes especially us women allow people into our lives who at times have good intentions and at times some who don’t...we allow people to manifest their own self loathing onto to us and if we’re dealing with our own mess, it can be catastrophic at times. Everything can and will be affected and I’m telling ya’ll that was and is sometimes me. But going through this handbook, doing the exercises has really helped me come into a different space in my life. I still have my moments of self doubt BUT I’m getting so much better at letting things go. Prayer and meditation has become a big thing in my life.
