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!!

    Easy to forget that we do make a difference and it was brought home to me after having my surgery that so many care that you would never think it to be so. Thank You!

  6. A wonderful reminder of how special we are and at times forget it. Fantastic words, Becca.
    I was feeling well enough from my back surgery today to put together a post for nurturing today.
    I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for hosting this wonderful challenge of introspection.
    Namaste,
    Izzy 🙏🏻

    Yes, we never know how many lives we may have touched, and probably many more than we think! Always good to keep in mind that we have more personal power than we realize. 🙂

    I SO want to believe this, Becca… I’m trying… But after a lifetime of being told the opposite, it’s hard, it’s VERY hard to hear, let alone believe…
    Here’s my offering 🙂
