Self Love and Self Esteem
Posted June 20, 2009on:
Today started at 4:15 a.m. with plans to attend the NSAVirginia meeting in Chesapeake, VA. I just arrived home an hour or so ago (around 8 15 pm) and I am happy to be here. This was a good day! Two of my friends (Debbie Bowie and Coleen Kenny) won top honors at the NSA Virginia speaking competition. They were great! There were six other participants who had gone through almost a year’s training for this day. We learned a lot from having one of NSA’s success stories in the person of Darren LaCroix to come and work with us to “improve our speaking skills.” Again it was a very good day.
I am practicing a little self love right now by starting this Blog tonight. I am keeping my word to myself. I am stepping out and expressing myself hoping to make a difference to you and me. We seem to be able to do for others so much more than we do for ourselves. I don’t consider that “loving myself or self love.”
I am challenging you and me to do one fun thing everyday; everyday! Some days for me that will be resting in my recliner. Other days it will be dancing to old school music; still other days it will be being still and listening to the silence. I call this practicing self love which I believe brings about better self esteem. We are the only one that can do this for us! No other person can do it; no matter how much we want that to be true ” that ain’t how it works.”
So I’m not going to waste another moment; I’m going to love myself a little by getting some rest. You are welcome to join me.
Love, Peace, Hope and Joy,
