I often think of generosity as something that requires giving to another. However this morning during my meditation I was invited to consider how I could be more generous to myself. That was a real mind shift for me. I do often take time to care for myself, physically, mentally and emotionally, but being generous to myself was a concept that I have never really considered. So that is what I decided to do today. I am attempting to be mindful of the fact that I need to be generous with myself. What this looks like today is allowing myself a little more time to get things done. Drink my tea a little slower, take more time to write, take time to plant healthy seeds in my mind. Spend a little longer visualizing my dreams, I do all this often but not through the filter of generosity.
So I now invite you to go out and be generous with yourself today. Spoil yourself, read the book, have the coffee, phone a friend, buy the sports car, go and book that exotic island holiday, compliment yourself on something. Whatever works for you, just be sure to be generous to yourself for a moment today. Tonight have a check-in and see if being generous to yourself has had an impact on how you feel.
