Nurturing Thurs – Empty Cup

216th Nurturing Thursday

1-12-2017

Even though life gets crazy-busy, and you feel you are juggling 100 different things at the same time, don’t forget to take care of yourself.  It is easy to focus on all the tasks needing attention, but unless you focus on you — you won’t have the energy to take care of your “to-do-list”!

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

Think about it … In our amazing but highly competitive and aggressive society:

  • How many of us truly feel good about ourselves?
  • How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we bestow a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

With the ongoing intention to accept myself with an open heart rather than label myself as “good” or “bad” OR a “success” or “failure” … I challenge myself, and I challenge YOU to  treat ourselves with the same kindness, caring, and compassion we show a good friend.  My goal for this year continues with striving and thriving in an atmosphere of self-compassion and self-kindness in my life.  What about you?

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I dub Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.

If any of my readers are interested in joining the nurturing, I applaud and welcome you to do so … the more the merrier!!

Nurt Thurs – My Journey

214th Nurturing Thursday

12-29-16

As the end of this year draws to an end — I find I instinctively carve time for contemplation —

  • what was accomplished … what wasn’t
  • which lessons were presented for growth
  • what did I learn from them — or did I?
  • what was priority versus what should have been
  • what nurtured me versus what hindered me
  • who crossed my path
  • who left to journey in another direction, or transitioned to a more peaceful realm
  • recognizing true gratitude for the simple truths in my life
  • and my list goes forth into the new year …

In the midst of this rumination —
I thank each of you for being part of my journey!

Happy New Year!

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

In this amazingly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we would a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

Our culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves. Yet, it is not possible for all of us to be above average at the same time. Don’t we usually know of someone richer, more attractive, “more together” or successful than we are? Even if we discount the material aspects and consider the more spiritual facet, don’t we know of those who seem more at peace, more aware or living in the moment. Even when we do manage to feel a strong sense of self-esteem or self-confidence, we are not able to consistently hold on to it. For most, our sense of self-worth bounces around like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling strongly tied with our latest success or failure.

In an effort to eliminate labeling ourselves as “good” or “bad”, and clearly accept ourselves with an open heart … to treat ourselves with the same kindness, caring, and compassion we would show to a good friend … I would like to incorporate more self-compassion and self-kindness in my life.

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.
