(I haven’t signed up for the diet, by the way, just like reading the free email newsletters.)
The topic was learning to love yourself, and one of the tips was:
Be careful of what you say to yourself and try not to say anything you wouldn’t say to
your dearest friend or most loved family member
This is so true!! It made me think of the piece of paper I carry with me every day in my purse. The whole story can be read here.
And I think this really relates very strongly to the topic of ‘kindness’ on Maxabella’s 52 Weeks of Grateful over at Kidspot.
Our inner voices can make a huge difference to how we feel each day.
Are you speaking kindly to yourself?
Are you loving, encouraging, warm, caring when you talk to yourself?
And being kind to ourselves doesn’t mean indulging too much in stuff that makes us unwell, sluggish, sick. It means having balance.
It means heaps of veggies!!
It means being gentle, persistent, respectful, thoughtful in our actions towards ourselves and in the words we say only to ourselves.
Be kind to yourself. Others might follow your example.
So, tonight I’m grateful for the reminder that I deserve a kind inner voice, and for the piece of paper in my handbag.
Are you kind to yourself?
