Daily Reminder # 173

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
  • cheese
  • pumpkin pie
  • crows
  • birds
  • my Tibetan salt lamps
  • indoor plumbing
  • my camera
  • electricity
  • music
  • water
  • "silverware" (forks, spoons, etc)
  • coconut oil
  • gogi berry juice
  • sam-e
  • dreams
  • angels
  • reiki
  • friends
  • hope
  • possibilities
  • Jon Stewart
  • laughter
  • all the amazing wonders of the world
  • Life

Have a Great Day
Crow a Little
