I wasn’t really sure what to write tonight, since it’s going to be a pretty uneventful evening for myself. I’ve been craving a night in for a looooong time. It’s hard to say no for the reason of “I need to stay home by myself tonight”. Fun times. Sounds kinda lame, but it’s one of the big ways that I show love to myself. I need it!! And my friends understand. Who isn’t pooped after a long week??!!
I went searching into some of my favourite books for some words of inspiration and here’s what popped out for April 8th from the book ‘The Language of Letting Go’ by Melody Beattie (a good book that helped me through my break- up last summer!):
“Rest when you’re tired. Take a drink of cold water when you’re thirsty. Call a friend when you’re lonely. Many of us are afraid the work won’t get done if we rest when we’re tired. The work will get done; it will be done better than work that emerges from tiredness of soul and spirit. Nurtured, nourished people, who love themselves and care for themselves, are the delight of the Universe. :) They are well-timed, efficient, and Devinely led”.
Well said! In order to do what we love, we have to feel recharged! So I choose to do what I love tonight so that I can continue doing what I love tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that. One of my favourite things to do on a Sunday is get up when the sun wakes me up and go for a long run around Stanley Park. I love this. I crave it. It’s my meditation. It’s my zen. So tonight, it’s me and my healthy dinner, a few chick flicks and a whole bunch of magazines getting ready to inspire the wall around my workspace. I’m feeling inspired by doing what my body needs.
Do what you love. “Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life” (Thanks Mr. Dyer!). Re-charge your batteries. Fill your love tank up so that you can spread it everywhere you go, doing what you love, EN-JOYing LIFE!
Smile with your heart!
