“Nourishing myself is a joyful experience,
and I am worth the time spent on my healing.”
~ Louise Hay
It’s easy to loose track of our intentions that we so carefully set for ourselves when we are in the midst of all the hooohaaa of our daily messes. It’s easy to forget promises, commitments and intentions, so how do you keep them up front and center?
Create a plan that will give you guidance and support during the week and you don’t loose sight of the importance of you. Remember you are worthy of exceptional self care, that doesn’t make you a bad person. As a matter of fact it’s just the opposite, when you take great care of you, than you can also give great care to others.
Here are 3 easy and simple suggestions: Take what feels good to you and leave out the rest.
First weed out from your mind all the thoughts that are stopping you. All the reasons why you are not important enough. All the thoughts that say that you’re not deserving. All the thoughts that say that you’re a bad person for thinking of yourself as special. Think about it, are these thoughts your own or did you acquire them along the way from well meaning people in your life and you made them your own?
Write down your commitment, your intentions or any promises that you have made to yourself and read it every morning and every evening, this way you will not loose sight of what you desire for yourself. I strongly encourage you to do this, don’t leave it up to memory, I know I’ve done it, when I’ve left it to memory it never worked for me.
And lastly place sticky notes (yes, I’m really a big one on this) where you will see them to remind you throughout the day. I place them on my bathroom mirror, dashboard of my car, fridge to mention a few places. If you work place it on your computer if you can and it doesn’t have to be a long dissertation, just a word or two that will have meaning for you and will trigger your memory.
When you make self-care a priority in your life you are declaring to yourself and the universe – that you are worthy – that you are special – that you deserve – that you are important.
This is your journey, investing in yourself by honoring you and recognizing your sacred life – magic will happen.
I AM WORTHY
I AM DESERVING
I AM SPECIAL
