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, the upside of uncertainty is there’s no need to worry, because whatever we’re worrying about probably won’t happen anyway!

    Congrats on the 200th NT post! Wow! Quite a lot of Thursday’s ! The hale quote is a good one – although sometimes hard to live out – whew – uncertain times and waiting can be so unnerving!
    And the flower photo is rich and texture alive! Nice pairing 😉

      Thank you — 200 is a LOT (almost 4 years) — time passes quickly!!
      The quote is a challenge, but there is freedom within its words — something to strive towards. Some people have it coded in their DNA but most of us have a struggle or two of letting go to see what happens! Thank you for sharing and visiting.
