We all know a kind word can provide a happy spot in a day - for the giver and the recipient. But do you ever think to be kind to yourself or is self-care always last on your to-do list?
1. Appreciate what you haveHow often do we focus on what is NOT in our lives? All around us we see people who own more stuff, make more money, have more friends and look more beautiful than we do. We compare ourselves to them, without knowing the true stories of their lives. Don't do it.
Instead, look at your own life. What do you have that makes you happy? Is it a beautiful flower, a child's smile, a smoochy kiss from someone special or a comfy bed with freshly-laundered sheets? How fortunate you are! Appreciate what you have.
