When you reach your goals, plant a tree to honor your hard work. As you nurture the tree (and yourself) and watch the tree grow and blossom -- just as you did -- you'll have a gorgeous reminder of your own strength and determination.
If you live in an apartment or are renting a home and can't plant a tree, buy a beautiful houseplant and get the same results.
There will be times when you will feel discouraged. Be prepared for that. Tonight, I want you to make a list of all the reasons why you deserve this - and include every worthy thing you've ever done - and then carry that list with you to remind you to treat yourself lovingly.
Benefits? Where do I begin. We're taught to nurture, and then we forget to nurture ourselves. We're taught to give the benefit of the doubt, and then we second guess everything we do. We truly do need to be mindful of all the wonderful things we are, and all the wonderful things we've done.
