Sometimes, the best way forward means taking a look back.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“Here’s to Loving on yourself today
Paying attention to your inner child
Looking deeply at him/her
Forgiving the parts that hurt you
Honoring your truth
Having grace with yourself
Here’s to loving on yourself today
We won’t let nothin’
Take this sweet somethin’
I don’t want nothin’
Only YOU!” — Alicia Keys
Hard truth? Adults don’t have all the answers. On the quest to grow older (and hopefully wiser), Alicia wants you to embrace this fact by tapping into your inner child.
In a melodic post, Alicia shares a whimsical reminder to honor the kid within, celebrating their presence and vulnerability. Through this connection comes a deep sense of play and healing that nourishes you. By listening to that little voice inside you, the root of your intuitive desire to create, love, fear, and observe the world around you will be revealed. This insight is empowering — offering another chance to care for yourself in ways that may have been missed in your earlier years.
As you continue to grow through what you go through, that child remains. So, as Alicia said, pay attention. Give your inner child the affection, recognition, and tenderness they deserve — then watch them thank you (and heal you) along the way.
