Recipe for a Mini Retreat
Can you remember the last time you did something for yourself?
I don’t believe in making New Year’s Resolutions. I’ve felt the stress and disappointment when I failed to keep my resolutions too many times. It’s like a diet – knowing I can’t eat something makes me want it even more! I allow myself to eat what I want and my intention each and every year is to treat myself with the love, respect and compassion I deserve. Life is too short to start the New Year any other way.
By intentionally vowing to be good to myself, I’ve found acceptance for who I am in this moment and where I am in my life. By finding acceptance, I’ve discovered peace, contentment and joy.
My practice of being good to myself has allowed the life I’ve envisioned for myself to fall into place.
It’s as if once I believe I’m worthy of living my dream, my dream comes true.
Begin this year with a vow to be good to yourself. Start by joining us for a retreat.
And remember, you really are doing the best you can.
The present moment is a beautiful thing, allow yourself to stay there.
Letting go allows space in your life for new possibilities and opportunities.
It may be difficult at first, but know that, yes, there are 20 positive things about you!
I did this exercise several years ago and it was incredibly difficult at first. But once I started, it seemed there were many many positive things to list. Now I remind myself to do this exercise every few months. It makes all the difference in the world to my sense of self and my self worth.
Happy New Year to You! Make this year the year of “Being Good to Yourself.”
