Focus on Self Acceptance
How many funky, weird or quirky aspects of your personality are you comfortable totally ‘owning’? I have found that the longer I live the more I see how easy it is to just relax and be me. By letting my real self shine through I’ve made some amazing, genuine connections with people that I’m certain wouldn’t have been possible if I were trying to be some ‘perfect’ version of myself.
Rather than second guessing yourself, or trying to fit into some imaginary mold of perfection, just get to know and love your true self and share it with the world!
My greatest joy in life is getting to know my true self better and better each day. Today I look for unique ways to accept my quirks and idiosyncrasies–my wonderful weirdness!
Set your intention
Before getting out of bed, take a few minutes to fill yourself with positive emotions by taking five deep, slow breaths. As you inhale, feel the oxygen lovingly filling your lungs. Accept and receive the air with an attitude of gratitude for your precious body.
After connecting with your body and breath, set your intention for the day by stating the energy or emotion you wish to feel today.
Finally, end the morning ritual by saying out loud today’s affirmation.
Focus on Your Sense of Smell.
Take a break around lunchtime to become quiet, still and centered for a few minutes. Take five deep cleansing breaths, once again connecting with your body, filling your lungs with life-giving oxygen. Actually sense and feel gratitude for your lungs’ ability to welcome the oxygen and feel grateful for your heart pumping the oxygen-rich blood throughout your beautiful body.
This afternoon find an object that is very pungent, fragrant or otherwise odorous and really take in its scents. If you are able to be in a natural setting outdoors, take in the smell of Mother Nature herself. Smell the soil, the air, the leaves. Imagine that each scent brings you closer to the source—rain water, clouds, volcanoes…smell the connection to the Earth.
Enjoy Some ME Time.
Tonight you will take five to ten minutes to do deep breathing as your transition from workday to rest time. Then spend 15 or more minutes reading erotic literature.
