Nurt Thurs – In a Year!


148th Nurturing Thursday


When I stop and think about it …
I think …
Isn’t that the truth?

So I take a deep breath … feel the location of the stuck energy … and tell myself … “soften and flow”, and continue to do so until the stuck energy flows with ease!

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!!

    Yes, and even if something takes a bit longer than a year to get sorted, it’s still temporary.

  12. This is a great one for me today, Becca ~ building works next door are dragging on and on……today (and for a few weeks to come!) they are replacing the roof and even the poor dog is fed up with the constant banging coming through the adjoining walls! But a few days after they’ve finished we will have forgotten they were ever here! 🙂
