We have plenty of time to ourselves and to explore thoughts in our head. Today, I welcome you to explore those thoughts with kindness, fairness, compassion and forgiveness. If you are like me, this can come quite naturally on some days and a daunting task on others. So let’s make it simple.
Todays’ message can be profound and simple.
Give me something to believe in. Today, I believe in myself.
That’s right. Believe in yourself. Then once you have that belief, then take a step towards your best self.
I believe in myself – to be healthy – Result: take a small or smaller step in that direction.
I believe in myself – to be a good parent – Call one of your kids and listen to them.
I believe in myself – to be a better spouse – Take one action towards a genuine action of affirmation and attention (bringing coffee works wonders in my house)
I believe in myself – to build a better future for myself – Believe that your ideas are truly divine, inspired and have a purpose. Ideas like those need action. And you are exactly the person to take that action.
I think you get the point. Having time to yourself can be a profoundly great and enriching thing. But just like anything, if not used properly it can weaken our spirit. So today, believe in yourself as I and others around you believe in you.
Wishing you fun and joy with today’s simple message.
