ON THE BRIGHT SIDE
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13TH, 2016
35 DAYS UNTIL SPRING
Sunrise: 7:28 am
Sunset: 6:00 pm
Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Madly in Love with Me Day. It's a great day to celebrate everything that you don't hate about yourself. Conspicuously placed on the calendar, this is a day that makes literal the idea that you must love yourself before you can love another.
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
I have always thought that if you want to be good for others, you first have to be good to yourself. If you are not getting enough rest and are tired and cranky, you can’t do your best. Making sure you take care of yourself is one way to insure that you will be able to take care of others.
The problem is that if we don’t love ourselves, this leads to problems: a lack of self confidence, insecurities and jealousies, self dislike, and unhappiness. If we allow this cycle of negativity to continue, we might behave in ways that push others away
When we love someone, we are kind to them. We respect them. We act with patience, compassion, and adoration. We encourage and support them. We don’t tear them down or speak negatively of them. We care about their needs. We believe they are valuable. The way we treat other people is a clear reflection of how we treat ourselves and we are, more times than not, harder on ourselves.
It’s sad but many people have very low self esteem and struggle with loving themselves. We need to remember we are all uniquely made, one of a kind, and are all very special. Pride like self esteem, is healthy when it includes others. The measure of pride remains the Great Commandment: to love others as self, not more, not less.
We have a little more snow on the ground this morning and it’s very cold. We’re to have a high of 14 degrees today and they say we’ll go below zero tonight. Take good care everyone and stay warm!
I hope you all have a SUPER Saturday !
Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners.

Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
