Nurt Thurs – Inner Peace

158th Nurturing Thursday


 No time is better than the present to make a
conscious decision to release the negative influences that disrupt
our inner peace. It is important to do this so that, we can enjoy life
as it unfolds its precious moments each and every day.
We do not want to miss any of them!

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!!

    Lovely. We need to combat the evil forces at work in the world with unified humanitarianism toward all regardless of race, culture or religion. Bless you…

    Sometimes, understanding how problems happened in the past can help with feeling more confident that they will not happen again; but certainly there is no need to rehash the negative details. If something is not easily understood, then we probably have much more to learn before it will make sense, and there’s no reason to worry about it in the present.

  6. Becca,
    I agree with this weeks nurturing very much. We tend to hold onto things that are best left where they belong …. behind. Excess baggage has to be let go.
