Your Most Important Relationship

Who is the one person you can name with certainty will be the longest relationship you’ll ever have? The answer of course is – YOU!

If you are going to be spending more time in this life with yourself, aren’t you worth time and effort to discover, celebrate, improve, and enjoy?

Self love and self care is one of the most unselfish actions you can express for yourself and others. Why? Because when you are your best, everyone around you is inspired to be their best as well.

You can only give away the love, happiness, peace and joy in porportion to the amount you posess. You must first own in this life whatever you want to give a way, spiritual gifts included.

You can throw perfume or throw manure, but whatever you throw at someone else has to stick to you first.

It sticks to you first.

Exercise:

What do you want more of in your life? How do you want to feel? Write it down now.

Now write down one simple action you can take today to give this away in your life.
Maybe if you want more understanding you can give away listening to someone with patience and non-judgement. If you want more appreciation, maybe you can send an unexpected thank you card to someone who has been kind to you. If you want more spontaneous happiness, maybe you can surprise someone with a colorful bouquet of balloons. Be creative. Be sincere. Be you.

When you enjoy your own company, others will follow. Don’t expect from someone else what you first can’t do for yourself. Know your strengths, weaknesses, dreams and desires. Learn from others, because you will never live long enough to experience it all yourself.

The seeds you plant today, will be the flowers which bloom in the garden of your life tomorrow. Plant seeds of kindness and you will grow love.

The world needs you. Share your shine. Invest in yourself. Be the best person you were created to be. You’re worth it.

    I love the three questions to ask yourself, Deb.

    Plus, the importance of loving yourself so much all you have to give back to people is love.

    I welcome this type of guidance. Sometimes we don’t slow down until our body demands it and then on reflection we wonder what happened to all the time that has flown by. I think what you offer is the path to a richer, more fulfilling life experience. Thank you.

  4. Yes, like the official 2012 Olympic film “Sport at Heart” says in their theme song: “What have you done today to make yourself feel proud??” This remains true long after the Olympics are over, and for all of us.

    Very apt advice, we spend far too little time on ourselves.

    Very correct! I think that there are many people who has yet to realize this. ~Thanks for sharing!

  7. Oh, I’m always so busy to stop and think about myself, my life, my place in the universe. Thank you very much for pointing this out. It is exactly what I needed today. You accomplished your mission with me — I am slowing down today and being present and grateful. Warmly, Nancy
