In a Moment – Nurturing Thurs


Someone shared this with me during the week —


Can you see where it could be
considered an “Ah Hah” moment?

Although, not a follower of TD Jakes – I thought this is an amazing, nurturing and releasing message …  too good not to share with you.  I trust it will be a blessing to someone.

Are YOU stuck in a moment
because of something
said to you …
in a moment …
years and years ago?

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 … a spin-off of the suspended Occupy Blogosphere started by Amy of SoulDipper.

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

    Aw, when I started looking inside and healing deeply, I used to watch different teachers and catch a bit of truth from each..I remember watching this man. 🙂 I like the message very much. I love finding truth in different forms. Much truth here!

    Yes, it’s all too easy to get stuck pointlessly ruminating about things that happened years ago, even though the other people involved have forgotten about it and moved on. So true.

    I like the way you’ve rearranged the list of contributors with the most recent posts at the top. 🙂 Here’s the link to mine:

      The kicker of this — “we” may be stuck for year and years, and more than likely, “they” didn’t give it a second thought at that moment! 😀 For some reason, hearing it the way he presented was an “AH HAH” for me. Thank you for linking.
