When you speak with Spirit frequently, you are constantly surrounded by love. I talk with Angels on a daily basis. I know what unconditional love is and yet I don't practice it whole-heartedly on myself! This was brought home to me this week when I received a monetary gift from my Mom. I got to thinking about what I would really like that I don't spend money on. People, it was towels! Yes, towels! My towels are so old that I am embarrassed to tell you!
We have now decided to use her gift to replace every towel in our house, EVERY towel! I am so excited! We bought a set to try and love them. It blew my mind when I reached into the dryer to retrieve them. They weren't laying there....tired. In fact, they filled the dryer with their soft fluffiness! Why had I been settling for old tired towels all these years?
That got me to thinking. Why do I have beautiful sheets for my spare bedroom? My guests feel loved and luxurious when they are with us. Why wouldn't I want that same feeling for us??? My sheets are old and, you guessed it, tired. Are we not enough to justify the best?
My whole family claims I am hard to buy for. I truly don't feel that way but they all claim I am. My daughter asked me what I would really want to receive this year. It took me a long time to think of something then I remembered that my iPhone cord is frayed. I've tried cheaper versions but they don't work well. I asked her for a new cord and a new case because mine is cracking. Really? I live in a beautiful home. We drive nice cars. Why on earth hadn't I bought myself a better cord for my phone that I use all day long. Why hadn't I bought a new case for my phone that keeps me connected to the world? I have become cheap on taking care of necessities for myself.
Truly, Spirit constantly affirms to me that I am enough. Why haven't I applied it in such a tangible way in my daily life? Self-care is another form of self-love. Why aren't I practicing it better?
Is there something that you have been shorting yourself on? What is it that is holding you back from the self-care and self-love that you so desperately need and are worthy of? I challenge you to think about this. You may be on a tight budget but you could still plan something each paycheck to help you accomplish your goal or you may get lucky and be able to accomplish it quickly. Treat yourself while knowing that you are enough and that you deserve the very best! You.are.worthy!
Until next time....
