Nurturing Thurs – Messengers


1-8-2015

It is time in my journey
to minister to my spirit
with ultimate self-kindness


time to continue healing
from within

by tending to the lessons
delivered by the messengers

Is it time for you?

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.

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

    Hi Becca, I encountered one of those “messengers” on New Year’s Eve when I was shopping in a very crowded supermarket, and a man hollered at me to get in line. I was in fact walking past the checkout line and told him I wasn’t in it, but he paid no attention and just kept on yapping about where the line was. I felt very annoyed for the rest of the day, but later realized that the incident had prompted me to reflect on bullying and our culture’s changing views of it, which helped me to better understand some things in the past.

    Here’s my post for this week: http://megevans.com/2015/01/08/not-personal-nurturing-thursday
