What Time is Check-In? We usually ask this question when we’re checking in for a hotel stay. You know? Vacation me please! Literally, I need a vacation (that’s on God). However, many of us take a vacation and never check-in. Our mental and emotional states are hanging on by a thread. And because we are fragmented individuals we do what we were taught – to continue to be fragmented. Broken individuals do not create healthy homes but perpetuate broken systems. We lack the understanding of the fundamental need to check in with ourselves, others, and a divine source (which is my Lord and Savior Jesus for me).
Quick lesson. You are made up of a body, soul, and spirit. Your soul is your mind, will, and emotions. Many of us are keen on making sure our intellect is superb. We want to ensure that we are the genius in the room. But at what expense? Our desire to live wholly suffers because emotionally we are drained. Vacations and ‘me time’ has become a show for the gram. But if you never check in with how you are truly feeling you can expect depression, anxiety, isolation, and more to rule your life. So I ask, what time is check in?
People were meant to grow. You see this drastically in younger children but as you get older it becomes more and more subtle. It is kinda like fashion. You are supposed to change your undergarments typically when the season changes, no less than twice a year. Many people do not do this because, one, they do not know, and two, because of the elasticity of the undergarments. The purpose of changing them is due to the growth of the individual. You may have gained or lost weight. So to ensure that your undergarments are flattering your body or sculpting you correctly, you must check in. If this is true with fashion, how much more with your mental and emotional health? Life changes a person and to make certain that it is for the better, you want to acknowledge every feeling and every thought. Why am I feeling thi way? Why am I thinking this? What am I believing about myself? What has been said about me that I have come into agreement me that is causing me to be sick and drained? What is sucking my life support?
Checking in is true self care. Getting to a place where acknowledging the broken pieces in you cannot be mended by itself brings about great freedom and healing. Once you check in with yourself your life will truly change. Once the check in is complete you must have a system in place for maximum healing and growth. Consider therapy and group support (true genuine group support).
