I love this song from Barbra Streisand in which she talks about “Loving yourself is the greatest gift of all”. After yesterday’s Post, I thought, I practice some self-honoring choices. I DID!
- Slept in, thank God I didn’t have to work today!
- Made my favorite cup of coffee
- Read in one of my favorite books
- Made a delish breakfast
- Talked to my wonderful friend, Lorin, we had such a delightful talk
- Going to see a movie now:”Saving Mr. Banks”.
Life is good when I CHOOSE to make it good. Still working on mastering this skill and yet recognizing I am getting closer.
Women and Mothers do so much! Yes, of course, Dads too (:……..and yet there is often so much more on our shoulders. We can juggle and we can multi-task…….and often we are left behind with all this DOING.
In the movie “Lilo and Stitch” there is a line where Lilo says:”Ohana(?) means family and family means no-one gets left behind”. Thus I will use this as one of my mantras. No-one gets left behind. Meaning “ME”, I no longer will leave myself behind anyone, no-one. I am choosing to make self-honoring choices. Treating myself with respect and loving, just like I give to my children, my husband, my family and my friends.
Thus: Cheers all!
Loving yourself is the greatest gift of all!
