Every now and then I gently remind myself where my focus should be. I'm lucky to have wonderful friends and family and I like to think I've equipped myself with the tools I need to be able to self-nurture. When I'm in doubt about which path to take, a few favourite quotes are usually the perfect medicine to send me in the right direction.
Right now I'm taking inspiration from the following:
Mind your own business
And watch your business bloom
If it doesn't feel good, that's your instinct telling you to put your energy elsewhere
Never make someone a priority if they consider you an option
The only thing that can grow is the thing that you give your energy to
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It's important to remember that whether you focus on negative or positive, the result will be the same - what you are focussing on grows. When we choose not to indulge in negativity, judgment and criticism, but instead to look inside and self nurture, we become more vibrant, self loving and ultimately able to offer far more goodness to others.
Have yourself a joyous weekend and give yourself a little verbal hug with some good quotes.
