gratitude, thanking yourself

Thanking yourself

It was a balmy Friday evening, I was out walking the dog. Bundled in a coat we walked in the silence. It was not as cold as I expected it to be.
‘Thank you ‘ I whispered.
Deeper inside me I also thanked myself.

For staying home after a long day at work, for putting myself first and getting some rest.
‘Thank you, for looking after yourself’ I whispered again.
It felt good.

Whisper a thank you for little things you do for yourself. A little pat on your back for putting in an effort to look after yourself.

Thank you, for taking out the trash otherwise my place would smell.
Thank you, for going to bed early you need it.
Thank you, for taking care of your health by getting some exercise.
Thank you, for working hard on the job.
Thank you, for always trying even when it seems hard.

Remember to sometimes dish out the kudos to yourself.

You deserve appreciation too.

    Inspirational – to thank yourself for the ordinary things you do. Sometimes it’s not always obvious that you’re actually doing it for your own benefit, like taking out the trash!

    I liked this.
