How well are you treating yourself?

During those times when our lives are filled with what seems to be constant change and growth, it is important to remember that we need to be gentle with ourselves.  Since it can be easy to use our energy to keep up with the momentum of our lives, we may not be aware of the fat that we are much more likely to run ourselves down.  When things seem to be moving quickly, it is especially essential that we make a point to slow down and be gentle with ourselves.

It might be difficult to notice what is happening to us for we may be so caught up in the whirlwind of our lives that we lost sight of the direction in which things are heading.  Being gentle with ourselves doesn’t mean that we don’t accomplish things.  Instead it means that we honor ourselves on an ongoing basis and take care of the needs of our bodies.

This means different things to different people.  For instance, it could mean having a session with a healer; taking remedy, herb or vitamins or getting some extra sleep.  Putting our energy into ourselves in this way helps create space for a more positive, loving and accepting view of our lives.  By setting the intention to do so, we will be more cognizant of our energy levels on a daily basis and more able to replenish them as needed.

The more we are able to treat our bodies with gentleness, the more tenderness and compassion we will call forth into our lives.  Learning to understand and pay attention to what our self needs will in turn allow us to fill our lives with unlimited loving and healing energy and model this behavior to others….

So, folks, take care of yourself… be gentle with yourself…

My gentleness certainly includes some hot coffee, yes?

  1. What? You mean I’m not supposed to burn the candle at both ends, then for good measure chip away at the center and light that too? Seriously??? In truth, today I am going to the Conservatory to see the winter flower show. Como is calling my name…

  2. I had to chuckle at today’s topic. In the last two days I have had to tell two people I know the very same thing. Both are under a lot of stress and seem to forget they get to be human and take time for themselves. I know I am not always good at remembering that myself but am actively working on it. Thanks for the reminder. Hugs on this cold, cold morning–at least I don’t have quite the snow they do north of me!
