Pause, Reflect And Realign - Journal Prompts For Midlife Mums.

Updated: Jun 15

Tomato seeds come with instructions.

I love growing vegetables, and there is something deeply satisfying about planting seeds in March and watching them sprout on my dining table. I regularly go and check on them, ensuring they have enough water, and light. As they outgrow their seed tray I pot them on to larger pots until they are ready to go into their final position in the greenhouse. From here, I support them with canes as they grow taller and stronger. When the fruit starts to show, I feed them regularly, hoping to gain a good crop of juicy tomatoes.

Sometimes, however, life gets busy, and I forget about my seedlings. When I remember and check on them, they look sorry for themselves, I regret not consistently caring for them, I try and take remedial action to repair the damage, and watch with bated breath to see if I acted in time.

As Mums, We Often Put Our Own Needs Last

When I was in full mum mode, I focused on everyone else’s needs and inadvertently put my own emotional well-being on the back burner. Ignoring my feelings and neglecting self-care left me feeling depleted and wondering how I got there.

Discovering EFT tapping transformed my approach. Now, I'm better at recognising my emotions and self-talk, addressing issues promptly before they escalate.

Yet, this journey required practice and focus to turn it into a healthy habit. Like all skills, it takes time to pause and tune into ourselves, asking, "What do I need right now?"

So, Where Are You On This Journey?

Do you regularly check in with yourself, acknowledging your feelings and worries? Are past experiences still weighing you down? Perhaps you ask yourself what is holding you back from being your best self right now?

Once you have the answers, EFT tapping is an amazing tool to clear the emotions and beliefs that aren’t serving you, making your future seem a bit easier to handle.
