Give yourself the gift of time
When you hear the words "Take Time", What do you think of? Do you think “Ugh, I don't want to take time to meditate or go for a walk!” If you listen to the voice in your head, you can almost hear the 6 year old child inside of your head wining.
Do you say to yourself, “As soon as I am done doing the laundry, I will take time.”
What is about those two little words that bring up such dread from the pit of our tummies? When you think about it, we associate those words with chores, so why wouldn't we look at taking time for ourselves as a chore? I will take time for the kids homework, I will take time for the lawn work.,I will take time for dishes…and the list goes on.
So I submit this change of thought with your approval. “I am giving myself the time to read, or meditate.” Yes that is much better. To give yourself something is to gift yourself every day.
A wise person I know once said to me “I love me some me” with a Cheshire cat smile on her face. I can remember hearing those words for the first time. I had to ask, how do you do love you some you ? I know --sounds hard, right? With her eyes bright with joy and excitement, she explained, “Whether it's walking, running, writing, reading, whatever your passion is, or wherever your spirit wants to go, give it to yourself every day. Gift yourself, with the gift of you.”
Wow, that is a great way to put it, “Gift yourself the gift of you.” When you lend yourself to this way of thinking, you can't help but feel at peace with yourself and the world around you.
So give yourself and the world around you a gift, by giving yourself the time and “loving you some you.”.
