Skating on Thin Ice? Let’s Get You Back to Solid Ground Today

Reconnect with yourself and thrive.

What do I mean by “skating on thin ice”?

Well, when you were growing up, did you occasionally hear an adult in your life say, “Careful, you’re skating on thin ice”?

I know I did.

And I bet quite a few of you did, too. 

And I’m sure that we all had a pretty good idea of where we were headed when we heard that phrase.

Are you skating on thin ice now?

So, do you ever feel like you are skating on thin ice now?

Not that you’re going to get into trouble with an adult who’s in charge. But do you ever feel like you’re on a slippery or not-so-trustworthy surface?

It’s not a good feeling. And, in fact, it can be downright dangerous.

And the root of the feeling lies in losing touch with yourself.  It’s a familiar feeling.

You get busy.  Lots of different tasks, people and interests clamor for our attention. And you find yourself going through your days, hardly pausing for a breath.

And it isn’t just being busy…

The longer you go on like that, the more likely you are to experience frustration, overwhelm, and feelings of victimization.  Rather than leading your life, you are being led by commitments and events.  You feel out of control, as your nerves get frayed, your temper gets short, and your tolerance for frustration melts away. 

Yes, you are skating on thin ice.

And the thing is, it’s not because you’re busy that you are experiencing these feelings.  You’re always going to be busy; that’s not the problem.  The problem is that you’ve let yourself get lost in the process.

So what that “thin ice” feeling offers us is an important wake-up call.

Take time to reconnect.

It’s telling you that it’s time to stop what you’re doing and reconnect with yourself. Make time to tap back into your warm, human heart. 

It doesn’t have to take a lot of time.  But what it does take is a commitment and a willingness to open and explore and, most importantly LISTEN.  Listen to what your heart has to say.

Reconnecting with your core, your wellspring, puts your feet back under you on solid ground. You’ve stepped off that treacherous, thin ice and reconnected with yourself.

Skating on thin ice? This helps:

Do you ever feel like you’re running on empty and there are no gas stations anywhere to be found? That’s what it’s like when you aren’t taking care of yourself.

It’s an awful feeling, and one that’s all too familiar for many of us. In fact, if I had to guess, I’d say that finding time for self-care is one of the biggest challenges going. And I’ve created an E-Guide that addresses this challenge and offers you a path to creating your own, rejuvenating self-care routines and rituals. It’s titled “Self-Criticism or Self-Care? How Your Choices Define You, Your Time, and Your Life.”

This E-Guide gets right down to business as it offers questions, insights and exercises aimed at helping you come to a deeper understanding of:

  • What gets in your way when it comes to taking care of yourself.
  • How your capacity for compassion is connected to self-care.
  • The activities that are most nurturing for you, and how to include them in your schedule, EVERY day.
