I think many of us, if not most, have a list of things we’d really like to do, but don’t, because we think we’re undeserving.
Do you have such a list?
It might not be something you’re even aware of. But it might linger in the back of your mind.
You might get hints of it when you hear a friend mention something they’re doing, and you think, “hmm…that might be nice.”
Well, today, let’s support each other in writing those things down, and actually doing them.
What self-care practices would you like to adopt? What activities would you like to do?
Whenever the negative, you-don’t-have-permission-to-do-that, who-do-you-think-you-are thoughts start whispering (or roaring), keep writing, and keep doing, anyway.
These thoughts will be aplenty or loud at first. But they’ll simmer down over time. You have important things to do, and these thoughts won’t be standing in your way.
Here are some ideas for practices or activities to put on your list:
“Where do I feel deprived?
What do I need more of right now?
What do I need less of?
What do I want right now?
What am I yearning for?
Who or what is causing me to feel resentful and why?
What am I starving for?”
What’s on your ultimate self-care list? What will you be doing today?
