One of the most profound questions that I’ve ever been asked was:
Are you kind to yourself?
This question has contributed significantly to my own personal development, growth and to creating boundaries for myself, which I now hold in very high regard.
At the time this question was asked I was spending a lot of time contributing to the well being of others and not so much time was being spent on my own well being.
I have to say the question stopped me in my tracks and ever since then I am consciously kinder to myself, I have become more aware when I am not being kind to myself and so for the most part I treat myself with much more love and affection.
This may sound a little odd to some or perhaps a tad egotistical but here’s what I’m thinking, if I look after myself I will be around a lot longer and have a lot more energy to continue contributing to the well being of both myself and others and who doesn’t enjoy being looked after?
Here are a few questions for you:
I am older and wiser than I look. After many years in the corporate world I decided to branch out on my own…brave eh? My tenacity, resilience and wonderful fulfilment from what I do keeps me doing.
