A Time for Extreme Self-Love

This is a time for extreme self-love and self-care, and I like all of us, need some extra special love right now.  I’m trying to be strong for my kids so they don’t worry about me, but the truth is  that I’m a bundle of emotions.  I have moments where I’m totally stressed out, on edge, anxious and then I have moments where I’m feeling calm and joyful and I know everything will be all right.

I think that practicing self-love & self-care right now is more important than ever.  Loving ourselves and caring for ourself has to be an essential part of our daily routine. It’s not a luxury, it’s an essential part in keeping ourselves healthy, strong, and maintaining a healthy immune system.

hello self

One of my self-love practices is, I write myself a ‘love note’ and I like to place it on the end table in my hanging out room so I can see it throughout the day.  Every time my eyes land on – hello self I love you – it makes me smile, uplifts me and fills me with joy.  I wrote this a couple of months ago, and I’m still looking at it every day, and it’s still nourishing me.

If you need some extra special love right now, try this – write yourself a love note – place it someplace where you’ll see it throughout the day, it can be anything that makes you feel good.  Your own words, a phrase from a book, lyrics from a song…anything that will elevate your spirit, make you smile, feel good, feel happy and fill you with joy.

Buddha said “You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

And now more than ever we all need to do whatever we can to empower ourselves and give ourselves self-love & self-care to get us through this time.  And let’s remember that this will pass and – Everything will be alright.

What I’m Reading

I hope you’re all well, I’m at home and hanging out with my books over here, although I have to admit that my concentration right now is very low and there are days I can’t read anything, and days where I flip from one book to the next, but reading is a part of me and I have to at least have the books, if for nothing else but the comfort they give me.

Here are 6 books I’m reading right now 🙂

I’m re-reading “A Return to Love” I read this book a few years ago, I have the physical book but I love to read on my iPad and I finally got it from the library.   Love the library.

“Your Spacious Self” I’ve had for a year but never got around to it, so now is perfect timing.

“Dwelling”, I love Melissa Michaels blog and so of course I had to get her book, and when the book first came out everyone was gifted a journal along with it, which made me happy.  I started reading the book but for some reason got side tracked, and now I’m back to it.

I’ve been listening to Melanie Beckler on and off for a while now, and I’ve been interested in channeling, so I can’t wait to start reading  Channeling the Guides and Angels of Light,  it was being offered for free when I got it last week and I think right now it still is free on Amazon, but don’t hold me to it.

The rest of the books I found through recommendations and can’t wait to dig in.

I’m finding myself drawn to read books that evoke the feeling of home, calm and a connection to universal truths.

Love to know what you’re reading, I’d love any recommendations.

A Little Beauty for the Heart

Sunday blessings friends.

During this trying time, I like most all of us, am trying to stay calm, be aware of what’s going on, stay home, which I’m actually quite happy to do, since I’m a homebody at heart, and dealing with the situation the best I can.

They say that looking at beautiful things can improve the quality of your life and create happiness within.  I think that we should give ourselves something beautiful to look at every day and especially now, reflect on the beauty around you and nourish your heart.

Yesterday I spent time looking through some of my recent photos I don’t think I’ve shared, and found these that made me feel good, happy and smile.  I think that flowers have that affect on most of us.  A connection with nature that uplifts our spirit.  And strangely enough I feel a connection to the entire universe, a oneness.

I hope these photos brought you a moment of calm, beauty and joy.

Love, prayers and many blessings!

Ways to Simplify

Slow down.

Declutter.

Set boundaries.  Say yes, only to what you really mean yes to.

Accept to love yourself without guilt or shame.

Let go of what doesn’t matter.

Let go of what’s not yours to worry over.

Let go of other people’s drama.

simplify

Liberate yourself and let go of limiting beliefs.  Weed them out and let go of them, and  take that first step towards freedom.

You choose – decide to be healthy, happy, prosperous, worthy, deserving, loving…

Have gratitude for the little things, even the ones you think are meaningless.

You cannot get to your true self while you’re covered up with overwhelm.

Live consciously.

Create an easy morning routine that supports you.

When you simplify your life you’ll gain more energy, you’ll remove extra mental and physical clutter, you’ll feel lighter, you’ll gain space and time.  You’ll be opening doors to your own inner self.

Simplify your days, simplify your life.  Make room for your true self to shine.

Love to hear your thoughts.

A Sunday Love Note

Hello everyone,

How are you now a couple of weeks into the new year?  I feel really excited and ready to create new content and move into a new direction.  I’ll be sharing ways to “Love Yourself” and “How to Manifest Your Desires” to live a Sweeter Life.  So psyched!!!  🙂

And talking about self-love, here’s a little Sunday love note reminding you to –

pink flower

Go gently with yourself today.

Ask yourself how you want to feel.  What would make you feel pampered today?

Put away your to-do list and give yourself a little rest, it’s OK to do nothing sometime. 🙂

I was inspired by the lovely Sarah Jensen today, I’m doing a journaling course with her, you can find her over here.

I’d love to hear from you, how are you pampering yourself today?

Blessings
