I was listening to Deepak Chopra on Day 8 of the 21 Day Meditation Challenge today. He said to think of the qualities of a good friend. Then be that good friend to oneself. That made me teared up as I realised how poorly I had been treating myself. Self-neglect at its worst. I make myself available to everyone around me but least of all to me and there are serious repercussions, namely health and well-being. Which is why this meditation challenge is timely.
I permit myself to heal and regain my true sense of self. I will be to me, the person I have always strived to be for others. Dependable, kind, nurturing, loving, giving, supportive.
I have the loveliest friend – a kindred spirit if you like.
She is fiercely protective of me, backs me up, keeps me grounded when I needed to be brought down a notch or two, loving, kind, sincere and remembers me in her daily prayers.
Because I am worthy.
