5 Ways to Practice Radical Self Love

by Jen Zmurchyk – Prairie Sky Wellness


Who is the most important person in the world?

You.

Period.

I had a recent health scare which further drove this point home for me. Of course my children are a top priority, but if their mother doesn’t take care of herself and love herself, then what good am I to them?

Ultimately we walk this world alone living in our own individual and unique universe’s. Yes we have important people around us that we love, but our lives are our own. Our life is gifted to us for the precious and small amount of time we spend on this earth. What would be the point of living that life choosing to be unhappy?

Self love is the most important thing we can do to improve our own lives, which in turn ripples outward affecting many people.

Radical self love

Here are 5 things any of us can do in everyday life to begin having a beautiful love affair with ourselves:

A New Beginning 10/10/2019

by Jen Zmurchyk – Prairie Sky Wellness

Rising from the ashes

On September 21/2019, I had a brain hemorrhage out of the blue in the middle of the night. That experience was likely the most frightening, yet incredible experience of my life.

Why would this be one of the most incredible experiences of my life and not one of the worst?

Having to go through something harrowing like that where I thought I might die has completely changed my outlook on life. I was already a very happy person and my life seemed to be going pretty good. I have done a lot of work on self growth and improvement over the last three years or so, and as a result of that I was feeling great in all aspects of my life.

However, there were still few small things that I didn’t even realize I needed to take care of in life until I had my brain hemorrhage.

A Story of a Girl Born in Sweden 1897-1994; Part 1

by Jen Zmurchyk – Prairie Sky Wellness

As my grandmother was going through some old family things she happened upon an amazing treasure; my great grandmother Hilda (Helda) Johnson’s diary. It contains lot of very incredible and often humorous stories from a time long gone. My great grandma Johnson was born in Tollarp, Kristianstad, Sk√•ne County, Sweden in 1897, and I’ve decided to share this beautiful gift that she left for us. The following are the exact and unaltered words straight from her.


Mom Johnson’s Life Story (In Her Own Words)

A Story of a Girl Born in Sweden, by Hilda Johnson


My name is Hilda Johnson (Malmberg). My Dad’s father was Carl Nilson. That was my Dad’s name too. When Dad became a soldier and went into the army, he had to change his name from Nilson to Frisk. That was his first soldier name. My Dad did not like that name, so he asked for a new name.

The officer said ‘No, you keep that name’.

My Dad took the officer by the neck of his shirt and seat of his pants and threw the officer on his bunk bed.

Dad said ‘Now will you give me my new name?’

The officer said ‘Yes, yes, yes’

That is how my Dad got his new name Malmberg. My Dad could have gotten into jail for doing that. Dad was not a common soldier for he was an officer. This all happened before Dad was married.

A Skunk Brought Me The Message Today Of Setting Gentle Boundaries

By Jen Zmurchyk – Prairie Sky Wellness

A baby skunk – what a cute little stinker!!!

I often go for nature walks and when I do, I usually ask for spirit to bring me messages. Sometimes it will come in the form of an odd animal sighting or seeing something out of place in the natural world. Today was no exception.

As I was walking around the lake this morning, three skunks came waddling out of the trees and walked right in front of me on the path. Fortunately the little stinkers never saw me, so I was saved from possibly getting sprayed.

How to Manifest a Relationship?

By Jen Zmurchyk – Prairie Sky Wellness

The reason I have put the question mark at the end of the title of this post is that I have no clue how to manifest a relationship. I am not an expert at relationships in any way; in fact I have one failed marriage and a failed long term relationship after my marriage ended. I do not wish to throw shade on either of my two ex-partners, we just were not meant to be. So because of this, I am adding a disclaimer that I am not a professional at giving relationship advice to anyone.

However, I have been single now for almost 6 years, I am in my mid 40’s, and I am feeling that I would like to try again.

Maybe.

A Rude Awakening – My Experience Having a Brain Hemorrhage

By Jennifer Zmurchyk – Prairie Sky Wellness

On September 21/2019 at 2:30 am, I woke up in incredible pain; I felt like someone had cracked me in the back of the skull with a baseball bat.

Searing pain. I tried to get out of bed, however, I fell on the floor instead unable to get my bearings. ‘What is going on?’ Blurred vision, extreme vertigo, words not coming out of my mouth properly, unable to walk, severe vomiting, completely delirious, and incoherent.

My children ended up needing to call an ambulance for me, and they had to watch from inside the house as their mother was taken away to the hospital with them having no clue as to what was wrong with me.
