Nurturing Thursday: To Live Whole Heartedly

photo 3

 Words from Berne Brown’s TED Talk The Power of vulnerability. 

Have
Courage to be imperfect
Compassion to be kind to yourself
Enough Connection to let go of who you think you to ought be
and become who you really are.

To
Live Whole Heartedly
Believe you are worthy of Love and Belonging
Harness the power of vulnerability and live Joyfully

That is my imperfect summary of this deeply meaningful talk that I highly recommend you give the gift of 20 minutes to watch.  I would love to hear that you did watch it and how you felt about it. After three days I am still finding new meaning from her words.

Happy Nurturing Thursday From the wisdom of Becca Givens

Nurturing Thursday: Take Off on a Magic Sofa Ride

Cozy is Calling
IMG_0966

House bound, imprisoned by the weather, flu or ennui?

Take this as an opportunity to embrace cozy,

Transform loneliness into solitude.

Set off on a magic sofa ride

Dress for adventure

in flannel pajamas and fluffy robe

Sink into soft cushions wrap up in warm blankets

let your imagination take you to

far-a-way places with strange-sounding names.

Meet new people, eat exotic food that

will agree with you.

Climb to great heights and explore deepest canyons

and have enough breath to sing

all without pain.

That’s what can happen when you take

a magic sofa ride!

Brewed in Percolator

Nurture Yourself this Thursday.

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

In this amazingly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we would a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

Our culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves. Yet, it is not possible for all of us to be above average at the same time. Don’t we usually know of someone richer, more attractive, “more together” or successful than we are? Even if we discount the material aspects and consider the more spiritual facet, don’t we know of those who seem more at peace, more aware or living in the moment. Even when we do manage to feel a strong sense of self-esteem or self-confidence, we are not able to consistently hold on to it. For most, our sense of self-worth bounces around like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling strongly tied with our latest success or failure.

In an effort to eliminate labeling ourselves as “good” or “bad”, and clearly accept ourselves with an open heart … to treat ourselves with the same kindness, caring, and compassion we would show to a good friend … I would like to incorporate more self-compassion and self-kindess in my life.

To “give this planet a much-needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.

If any of my readers are interested in joining the nurturing, I applaud and welcome you to do so … the more the merrier!!

 

Blessing on this Nurturing Thursday and every day for the rest of the year.

Nurturing Thursday: Be The Light One to Another

You are my sunshine

You are my sunshine!

Dear Ones,

The days are getting shorter, by next Monday the sun will  begin to set at 5pm and earlier every days. Time to catch all the rays we can! Vitamin D. And above all be the Light one to another. Oh, and make of sun songs to whistle in the dark:  I’ll start “Here Comes the Sun”!

Other who bring light to me and can do the same for you:
