Self-care, self-love

Self-Care & Making Moments That Matter

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time: for that’s the stuff life is made of.

2020 a brand new decade! A brand new play ground for YOU!

I hope 2020 encourages you to get crystal clear on what makes you happy and what you enJOY doing and to do more of that!

Each day includes 24 hours and so much of that is used for sleeping and working and hopefully loving what you do. But what about the rest of the time? Are you filling those moments with the things that really matter to you?

The moments in between the structure are truly golden moments and we must seize the golden opportunities! The beauty in these moments that please us might even be the simple ones to plan like just stopping to enJOY a cup of tea, or taking a 5 to 10 minute delicious nap, or reading to a child, reading a book, trying a new recipe… the list is endless but the point is that we MAKE these precious moments a priority in our lives….. that we recognize that we matter and the moments that matter to us most matter! 🙂

We hear the word self-care used a lot and for good reason. It is a real priority and should be always. The happier and more fulfilled we feel in life, the more we enJOY it the journey, and the more everyone around us benefits. Self-love is an energy that spreads to others and makes them feel better too! It is a beautiful thing. So the more you can do the things that bring you the greatest pleasure or that give you peace of mind, the more you have a cosmic affect on the whole. What you do for yourself you also do for others. With this in mind it might encourage you even more to honor and love yourself. In fact why not love yourself all up? 🙂

So here is an idea: Take a piece of paper out right now or grab your phone and start making a list of the more’s, or the enhancements that you are going to add into your life to increase your JOY factor.

For example:

. reading more good books

. listening to more music that makes you happy

. trying new recipes

. more walks

. more laughter

. more quite time

. more organization

. more simplicity

….. etc. etc. As always the list is endless. Get creative, honor yourself and most of all have fun with this!

Happy New Year my friends!
