Weed out those relationships
and “things” that do not bring you
truth, nurturing and peace

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-kindess in my life.

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I am dubbing 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!!

  5. OK, sign me up! It has taken me a long time to rid myself of toxic relationships. And now I’m sure I annoy people just like a reformed alcoholic in a crowd of ex-drinking buddies. I am always telling my friends to get rid of the relationship even if it is their mother who is toxic. That has not gone over well but is something I struggled with for years. I am a much happier man now and my mother- rest her soul- finally realized what she was doing to me and my sister.

  7. A very true statement on toxic relationships. All of us have them. The difficult part
    is figuring how to avoid them. We tend to overlook rather than offend. Good advice
    in this one, Becca.
    Namaste …

    “Truth, nurturing and peace” … Finding those things makes letting go of the other stuff much easier. I’m always amazed that there is more to let go of.. but these treasures are worth it.
    Happy Thursday, Becca. Thank you for being you…and for being here. 🙂
