Don't hesitate to crow about yourself.
I was taught to be ashamed of my gifts or my successes. My mother felt that it was vain and wicked to like yourself and made sure I never felt good about anything I accomplished. My brother resented my successes, though he had more than enough of his own. He made sure I suffered if I succeeded at anything. So I've always had a hard time thinking or saying anything good about myself. That's a real tragedy. We should all be able to love ourselves and rejoice in our gifts - and simply in our existence. That's my thought for the day. I'd say something nice about myself but.... I still can't do it without feeling frightened.
Some things I'm grateful for today:
- Angel and Tara Grace
- pumpkin pie
- my Tibetan salt lamps
- indoor plumbing
- my camera
- "silverware" (forks, spoons, etc)
- coconut oil
- gogi berry juice
- Jon Stewart
- all the amazing wonders of the world
Have a Great Day
