Be kind to yourself

21 Apr

Part 1:

Yesterday I got a text from a dear friend.

“Be kind to yourself. You have a lot on your plate. x”

That thought lingered on…

Part 2 of the story:

I love stationery and I recently bought this little note-book I just loved.

I had no purpose for it until yesterday.

So, the happy ending to part 1 & part 2 of this story, is the following:

I plan to write little notes to myself of the many ways in which I can and have been kind to myself on a given day.

I do know that I should be more kind as I can be extremely tough on myself….but I tend to forget.

So I will write down when I did myself a favour by going to bed early….by taking my vitamins…by being happy with myself that I actually used the leftovers from last night for tonight’s dinner instead of chucking them in the bin after a week in the fridge – I am not such a bad housewife after all. I should pat myself on the back !

Starting today !

We need reminders…. we need friends….and we need to be kind to ourselves.
