I have been focused on self care this month.
Self care is about being grateful and appreciative
for yourSelf, yourself, your body and the ones you
love. We have an easy time thanking others, but
How often do you thank yourself for all the things
you do every day?
I have just started to do this, and it feels pretty amazing.
I have started to love up my little girl in me, and
thank her for all her support and efforts. I do this
by journaling back and forth – with her and I speaking
to one another.
Here is part of an article that I found in Energy Medicine
Magazine, I wanted to share this exercise with you.
“Consider the following exercise for putting gratitude
into action with people close to you, whether they be
spouse, children, friends, or business partners:
• Pick at least three people you want to
• Ask yourself these questions in advance:

times–that you’ve had together?
~ What specific qualities do you admire about
~ What efforts by this person have helped you
make it through difficult times?
• Find five minutes to sincerely share the results
with the person. Ask them to do their best to
please receive and really take in your
This simple exercise helps us stop taking people for
granted and can effectively reawaken awareness of
the abundant gifts of life.
Now try it on yourself!”
I encourage you to try it with yourself FIRST.
Have fun with this, as women we are all learning
to care for ourselves more, first and always!
