Love of Thy Self...

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Those who love a neighbor
more than themselves are torn
into strips divided into modes
of a determined lifestyle - thus,
Where is the love for thy self,
the caring with a strong heart
of unselfishness to promote
one’s own well being of
nurturing care for thy own
self esteem and emotional
confidence for wellness?
It was hidden deep within
one’s own loving soul that
was busily caring for others
and their ailing needs…

- Rhoda Galgiani

    We truly need to turn that care and positive thinking we use with others toward ourselves. I have learned - over time - to do that and realize that I have value. It still needs work - we can't all be perfect - but it can be done. If we could only be the good friend to ourselves that we are to others - our world would be a much happier place.

    Caring for others can be a distraction to taking care of our own needs though it is still a good pursuit. However, I do get your point and I am trying to do exactly that today! Yay!

Hope you are having a relaxing, peace filled Sunday and are nurturing yourself!

Love and hugs, Karen
