Self love is vital to living a fulfilling, wonderful life. Whenever I need a pick me up, I go to Gala's blog for inspiration. "I believe in searching for the magic in every day. Once you've trained your eye, you can’t help but delight in seeing the small & extraordinary things that surround us." In her blog, Gala advocates for self love with a rarely unique voice.
I'm going to start off by making a list of things that make me smile. I won't commit to doing this every week because that probably won't happen.
Drinking a cup of coffee, when I am in no rush, let's me plan for the future. Not 5 years into the future but what I'm cooking for dinner or my plans for the weekend. I do a lot more planning and a lot less doing which is pretty frustrating. It's a habit I'm trying to dispel.
Reading a new magazine floods my brain with outfit ideas and blog post discussions. Again, I plan but don't execute. I guess it's a work in progress.
Even when things get overwhelming, I know C is there for me with a listening ear and words of encouragement.
Nature. Trees, especially during Autumn, make me feel a sense of calm and wonder.
My curiosity constantly challenges my surroundings and makes me want to see what else the world has to offer. In return, how I can contribute to make this life better for myself as well as others.
Opportunities. I've been fortunate to have opportunities presented to me. It's always been a matter of deciding what's right for myself.
I challenge you to create a list of things, large or small, you are grateful for. Don't let anyone determine the definition of importance. It's your list!
