Today is Summer Solstice, the first official day of Summer 2018. It is a good time to check in with yourself and see how you are doing this year. Are you living your life with Intention? The definition of intention is an “aim or a plan”. What are you planning for yourself to feel or experience for the final half of 2018?
I love the 80/20 rule. If I exercise, eat and drink right, give myself self-care, and continue to pursue my passions 80% of the time, then I will feel good 80% of the time. That gives me 20% of the time to be my flawed human self and not exercise, eat and drink too much, and ignore my self-care which makes me feel bad. We have to experience good and bad to understand and appreciate their differences, but I will keep trying to feel good most of the time.
I dare you to look yourself in the mirror and speak kindly to yourself like you would any other person you love. Speak of the grand plans you have for finishing off 2018 with beautiful memories. I double dare you to touch yourself gently when you bathe or apply oils to your body, YOU are worth it! The words that you speak or don’t speak to yourself matter. I believe the thoughts that you have or the thoughts that you forget to have about gratefulness matter.
Every moment we have the choice of choosing Love or Fear. Try to make Love your 80%.
