Be Nice To Yourself
Today’s Inner Beauty Thought is……….Be Nice to Yourself.
I just love this thought because it is all about giving. Yep, giving to yourself the love and respect you most certainly need. And if you can’t afford the time right now…….who will?
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I never really paid much mind to it in the past. I know that is awful to say, I’m a Mom, but it is true. Now that my mother has passed, I have to ask myself, “Does that day now have new meaning ?” The gut reaction or is it the mental reaction says, “YES OF COURSE!”
Now that I’ve settled that question, I’m going to ask why? I’m not going to list all the obvious reasons, I’ll let you fill in that blank.
The thought that I want to follow is the one about self or is it selflessness, because isn’t that one of the dilemmas as Mothers, Wives, Daughters, Women, Girls, that we all face? Who comes first Husband, Boyfriend, Lover, Significant Other, Children, Pets…….You?
Well I’m going to share one of the secrets to Inner Beauty, and that is, that, it is YOU. You must come first, just like what the flight attendant tells you “In case of an emergency, place your oxygen mask on first and then assist your loved one.” Funny how something so simple can change whether you are in a place of fragility or a place strength.
I believe as a Beings, we always want to give to others and so often we forget to give to ourselves, and be nice to ourselves. We work too hard, we forget to eat, we forget to play, we end up forgetting ourselves……..so remember, it is important to “Be Nice to Yourself” so you can breath, because it is no fun to be out of air.
Sending You Lots of Love
