Give to Yourself.
Who has ever heard of "extreme self-care" on a Monday? Shouldn't that be reserved for the weekend or for a much-needed vacation in your distant future? The greatest responsibility that we have is to ourselves. There is merit to that which we often label as "selfishness." If you have a desire to be a giving person--to be loving, compassionate and empathetic--you must give to yourself FIRST, so that you will have more to give. You cannot give from an empty vessel. You must first fill yourself so that you are overflowing, rich in abundance, love, and passion. Go withIN or go withOUT.
Today is about you. Despite the chaos, frustration, and stress that often arises on the first day of a new work week, take time to "fill yourself." Do something for yourself today that is out of the ordinary. Take a hot bath by candlelight. Go out for an expensive lunch. Buy yourself some flowers. Get a manicure or a massage. Eat some expensive chocolate. Step out of your comfort zone and become your own best medicine. Follow your inner voice and intuition about what you have been denying and deny it no longer!
Success or sabotage? You can either live or exist. Every moment you are making a choice. Why not choose to make this an exceptional week by beginning with a different intention?
Is this going to be an incredible day? The day is ripe with possibility; are you willing to create opportunities where they already exist?
