Just because I don’t live in the US doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t nurture myself.
Everyday provides the opportunity to do something that demonstrates kindness and compassion towards myself. How easy it is to demonstrate those qualities towards others, and how challenging to practice self care.
I brought some flowers yesterday as a prop for a photography exercise. They were good enough for the photo shoot as they were laying flat, but they were too limp for a vase.
When I meditated this morning I decided to buy myself a bunch of flowers, however why buy one bunch when you can treat yourself to two.
Neither bunch had the right colour balance on their own, and that’s the reason for getting them both.
When I write my gratitude list tonight it will include – I am grateful that I treated myself kindly today.
