"do 3 things you love today": day #9

 I've been reading this book right here (Beautiful You: A Daily Guide To Radical Self Acceptance) for the past month or so. It's a book of daily affirmations that has been oh! so good for me! While I don't read an affirmation every single day...if I find one that really speaks to me...I try to use it every single day (hope that makes sense!). So...when I came across this one right here "do 3 things you love today"...I loved the simplicity and wisdom of it!!! Imagine if...every single day...we could do just 3 things for ourSELVES that we completely loved!!! They don't have to be expensive, complicated or time consuming...they just have to be things that make your heart sing.



 I'm finding that the key lies in really savoring the moment...opening my heart to gratitude and love. In knowing that I'm worthy of asking for what I need and then...kicking guilt to the curb and claiming the time to do things I love. My days were usually so filled with mommy duties that I often neglected myself. So this practice has really (radically, friends...radically!) changed my life.



And now...because I take the time to fill mySELF up...I can show up wholehearted in my life.
And that, my friends...is pretty  fabulous!

Great post! I am going to follow your advice today, and do 3 things I love! As I'm trying to create a new habit - I find it helpful to schedule a reminder into my calendar. So, the #1 item on my to-do list each day for the next week is to 1) have lunch on the deck, 2) walk among the flowers, 3) open to a new experience! Thanks for the inspiration!
