As the months have progressed I have just got stuck in and it has become a routine now that I make sure that I do. There have been some weeks when I haven't got my act together and just moved it to the next week. I have had to remind myself that the only pressure I will be under is the one that I set for myself, and so I have tried to remain flexible, preparing where possible the background pages, but trying to think about that week and where and what I need to be thinking about.
I am not always kind to myself and have at times been quite harsh, and I ask myself would I treat a friend the way that I treat myself. We talk about treating others the way we treat ourselves, and sometimes even the dog or cat is treated better and we put ourselves down or devalue our self-worth.
You have to treat yourself the way you want others to treat you, that means to respect and value your worth. You were brought into this world for a purpose (yes I will continue to say it if I have to in each post), you might not know that or feel that, and I can say that there are times I wonder if I have got anywhere near my purpose cause everything just hit the fan!
At the end of the day you have to be able to nurture yourself the way you would nurture a child, be gentle to your dreams and treat yourself with kindness being patient and loving to your heart. Do something nice just for you, find some encouraging and inspiring words that you can say to yourself on waking up and going to bed. If you are stuck check out my Word for the week and Quote Wednesday for inspiration, but do something positive.
As I go and take my own advice, I am grateful and celebrate today, a day that I have the opportunity to do something kind to myself and extend that to someone else.
