Life is a Special Occasion!
Madly In Love With Me Day is held on February 13th, the day before Valentines Day. This one holiday I’d never heard of before. The philosophy is that to truly be able to show love to others, we must first be empowered to love ourself without apology so it’s a good day to treat yourself to your favorite lunch in the company of people you know love and respect you as you are today. You deserve every bit as much of your love as do the objects of your affection! Today, give yourself the consideration and kindness you'd extend to the people you love.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
We must be our own before we can be another's.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I have always believed that if you want to be good for others you do have to be good to yourself first. You have to treat yourself kindly by getting enough rest, enough play, and enough hugs and smiles. Helping your self to be better is only going to make what you do for others better. I know I’m not much good at all when I’m tired out and frustrated.
On the bright side here at my house the weather forecast says that temps will be on the rise for the next 7 days here. By next Thursday we may get up close to 50 degrees. It’ll feel like a taste summer for us up here in the north. A heat wave for sure. We won’t stay that way but it’ll be a welcome break for sure.
Hope you all have great Thursday!
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for this past year and have now reached my 1000 gifts. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
