Within every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with instinct, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. However, sometimes she neglects the need to take the time to reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of the instinctual nature.
Women Reclaiming Their Right to Restore, Renew and Rejuvenate
As Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D. so aptly says in her critically acclaimed book, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype, “Much of modern woman’s premenstrual crankiness is not just a physical syndrome but is equally attributable to her being thwarted in her need to take enough time away to revivify and renew herself.”
Taking time to replenish, restore and renew is a matter of giving oneself permission, claiming this necessary respite to refuel. Running on empty serves no one and the engine will stop completely if the vessel is not maintained.
Rejuvenation has Powerful Effects for Everyone in Your Life
Do what sparks joy in you at best and what brings satisfaction at minimum.
Do this often and with no apologies.
Claiming the right to restore will not only increase your well-being, but also help those closest to you. Not only will they be the recipient of your calm and centered countenance, but the example you set is a teaching opportunity for those you love. Taking time to pursue interests shows others that they, too, need to do the same.
