This Sparked Me!

I have been so used to taking care of others but I never took the time to take care of ME! Now I take time to actually PRAISE myself and get rid of the normal STINKY THINKING I have about myself. I can and will do this. And I tell myself that often. emoticon emoticon

    Not gifting myself is one of my core issues. It bleeds into relationships, work, self-esteem, being late all the time and, of course, food. (After all, overeating is like giving oneself the gift of a 'saccharine' poison pill: tastes good going down, but does the body no good long term.)

    I can certainly relate.
I, too, have devoted my life to caring and loving others. Now it's time to give the same kind of love, attention, admiration and praise to myself. I deserve it, also.
At first it felt find of odd and maybe even a little crazy. LOL
I got over that very quickly!
Changing my inner voices from negative to positive has made a tremendous difference.
I highly recommend it to everyone. emoticon
