our february on the mat was filled with love,
not the love we send away,
but the love we guide to our self.
it all started with questions of inquiry and thoughts.
"and if I asked you to name all the things that you love,
how long would it take for you to name yourself?" ~anonymous
"eat like you love yourself ~ move like you love yourself
speak like you love yourself ~ act like you love yourself"
"almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you"
~ ann lamott
and then you all chimed in to collect the HOW TO, and so I encourage us all to...
~ be aware
~ ask for what you need
~ create boundaries
~ eat clean, healthy foods
~ soak in the tub
~ have time alone
~ get outside, a lot
~ reduce the chemicals you breath, eat, rub on your skin, use on your grass
~ do the things you love "3 for 5" => 3 things for 5 minutes each day
~ "leave it at the stop sign" => conserve your energy
~ meditate or just be still
~ commit to you
