It’s one thing to find motivation through another person’s ideas. It’s another thing to create our own “Train of Thought”, linking together the pieces of your life in a way that propels you forward. What pieces are these? Your own examples of self loving: your thoughts, memories, experiences, knowledge, wisdom, ideas, passions, abilities and opportunities. Put them all together, do they connect, or does your own train of thought “derail” you?
Creating Our Own Self Loving
We’re all creative being, living in a world of ups and downs. The nature of this world is to grow, like a garden, but also to break down the old into something that may someday serve in the next season.
It’s difficult to have only one side of the equation and ignore or disregard the other. Both sides do serve a purpose, and both can be rejuvenating and fulfilling. For today’s Self Love Tip let’s focus on creating your own Self Loving viewpoints to help instill a sense of satisfaction for your lives.
Self Love Tip #1: Whether you are building or breaking down those things that no longer serve, you can add the ingredient of value to the mix. As you create, remember your goals, and focus on how the work you do today will serve you in the long run.
If you are tasked with letting go of the old, remember to honor those who have been a part of your life, and the experience you’ve gained. Being grateful is the first step to being great-full.
Self Love Tip #2: Value isn’t just in the things you can count or own. Some of the greatest gifts we have are the ones beyond measure: our time; our energy; love and connectivity; and last but not least, the space for something new to come into our lives. In those times when you do not know what’s next, be grateful for the space, knowing that it is there for your greatest good.
Creating your own self loving thoughts and ideas isn’t about being selfish, in fact it’s a key ingredient to creating a caring, supporting environment for others to be a part of your live.
