I was thinking this morning that in order to nurture myself, I need to know what that means specifically for me. What nurtures me might not be nurturing to someone else. I started thinking about the pressure to come up with something every day for another 28 days, knowing that not every day in September has been a good clear thinking day in the past. So, I decided that I needed to make a list for myself to have and use as needed.
I'll share mine. What things nurture you?
Are you joining me yet? Even if you missed the first day, consider joining me for this challenge for the next 28!
What nurtures me (in no particular order):
Going for a walk outside (which I did this morning)
Painting my toe nails bright colors (painted them bright purple again yesterday)
Taking a bath
Buying flowers for myself
Getting together with friends
Going to the beach
Sitting on the front porch swing with my husband and talking about our dreams
Writing Down My Soul (from the book Writing Down Your Soul by Janet Conner)
Reading a good book
Looking at pictures or old photo albums
Reading books to my children when we're all excited about a particular book
Those are just a few of the ideas I've come up with. What ideas come to your mind? I'd love to hear! And please let me know what you're doing to join in.
