This quote grabbed my attention the first time I saw it. I just love it!
Right now in my life, I feel like my purpose is to experience myself fully, in every way that I can. What does that mean? For me, it means treating myself the way a best friend would treat me; with love, kindness, patience, acceptance, etc. It also means to go out on a limb and treat myself to a weekend get-a-way, a nice walk in the park, a movie and dinner, time with horses, or anything that may excite me or bring me back to my heart center.
I know that there are MANY distractions in life, whether it be raising children, working 40 + hours a week, the one too many obligations and commitments, or one of the other 100 distractions that make us feel like there isn’t enough time in a day. However, if we don’t take time for ourselves, we begin to lose the spark that makes us feel ALIVE and HAPPY. If we don’t take care of ourselves, there is NO WAY that we can take care of others to our best of ability. By giving ourselves the time and attention we deserve, we somehow make more time for others and by doing so we live a happier and more fulfilling life.
Experience yourself today! Do something that makes your heart dance, I don’t care if it’s only for 15 minutes. Give yourself a present today: your OWN PRESENCE.
Be true, Be wild, Be You!
