This is a good time to look at just how much time you spend nourishing and loving yourself. Sometimes with all the hectic, crazy things that happen we can forget all about ourselves.
This is a great exercise to remind you just how wonderful you are!!
Be patient and wait until you have completed all your tasks for the day and you are ready to give the time to yourself. Once you have found a safe and quiet place light some incense and sit in a comfortable position with your back straight. Close your eyes and become aware of your body.
Relax your entire body starting with the top of your head, face, neck, throat, shoulders, back, arms, hands, fingers, upper body, hip, pelvis, thighs, legs, feet, and toes. Inhale all your stresses and release all your frustrations, just breathe them right out your body, repeat this three times. Now hug yourself long and deep.
Pick up a piece of paper, or your journal, and write down all the things you have ACHIEVED this year. Don't be mean with yourself. Really acknowledge all the things you have done, however small, for every action has an impact. Read over what you have written and absorb it, allowing the words to flow around you.
Now write a third-person testimonial about yourself.
How do you see yourself?
What will you be remembered for so far this year?
What service have you done?
Who have you helped?
Where do you want to be in six months?
Try not to think too much, as it may restrict what you write. Let your heart speak through the writing. These are your private thoughts for you alone so don't be shy or modest. The more truthful you are the more empowering this exercise becomes (the divine paradox)…..
