This is an ongoing challenge for me … what about you? 
I realize it is necessary in order to uncover our true power!

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, and often they’re more interconnected then we may know at the time. The changes we make in our individual lives, however small, may end up having a significant impact on things that seem beyond our control.

  4. Always glad and happy to participate in these Thankful, Thoughtful Thriving Thursdays. One of my best coping mechanisms which is also a Creative Outlet for me is Photography. When I first created my Photography Blog Roaming Urban Gypsy in 2012 I founded it on the premise that once I retired I would travel the world and take photos in the great urban centers of the world. However in 2015 a light bulb went on in my head/mind. I live and work in New York City and the World is here right at my fingertips only a click away. Every culture, tradition, ethnic groups, food, etc.. is often only a subway ride away some even closer within walking distance. When a subject, topic, person, place or thing calls my name my camera (right now my Samsung cell phone) answer. Photography is self expression as my genre is Street/Urban photography. For me it is a calling, passion, plus pure Joy. Photography has given me the courage to meet, greet, stop and speak with street/subway performers & vendors. It has and does give me a strategic way to deal with anxiety and depression I’ve been battling for most of my adult life.
    So now I present for your viewing pleasure some delicious, delectable and delightful slices of the Big Apple aka New York City.
