Have you told yourself you loved yourself today?
Years ago, when I read that question from a correspondence course, those words stopped me in my tracks.
Had I ever done that before? I couldn't remember. And yet, it made sense and touched my heart.
Do you tell yourself how wonderful you are?
When we think, speak or focus on loving ourselves, we're actually imprinting positivity into our brains. It then makes a difference in our physical well-being too.
We get to choose what we say to ourselves.
Remember: Before we can give to others, we must give to ourselves. I know it may sound unusual, but it's true. When we nurture ourselves first, then we have more to offer others.
Walking with nature is one way that I recharge my batteries. This week, in my walk with our dog, Shiloh, I happened to glance up at the tree on our front lawn. Surprise!
As I paused in the night air, the world stood still. I felt the peace of simply "being."
Can you take the time to simply "be?"
