Nurturing Thurs – Empty Cup

216th Nurturing Thursday

1-12-2017

Even though life gets crazy-busy, and you feel you are juggling 100 different things at the same time, don’t forget to take care of yourself.  It is easy to focus on all the tasks needing attention, but unless you focus on you — you won’t have the energy to take care of your “to-do-list”!

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

Think about it … In our amazing but highly competitive and aggressive society:

  • 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 bestow a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

With the ongoing intention to accept myself with an open heart rather than label myself as “good” or “bad” OR a “success” or “failure” … I challenge myself, and I challenge YOU to  treat ourselves with the same kindness, caring, and compassion we show a good friend.  My goal for this year continues with striving and thriving in an atmosphere of self-compassion and self-kindness in my life.  What about you?

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I dub 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, first the energy goes, and then after a while the focus goes too… an overlarge to-do list is just not sustainable.
