my meditation this morning :
RESPECT YOURSELF. respect yourself enough to...
> do what you say you're going to do.
> get your work done.
> not procrastinate.
> not put up walls around yourself to excuse yourself from going stuff you don't want to do.
> set goals for yourself and follow through with them.
> not waste time.
> treat yourself as well as you treat the most beloved person in your life.
it's all about loving yourself, we know this. but what about respecting yourself? what about putting yourself in a position even higher than you thought? the self that deserves to be worked hard for, and that deserves to not suffer through another day of habitual responses. today is the day. to change it up. why not try, for one day, just today, to truly respect yourself? do the work you need to do and take enough time to nurture yourself. it's funny, the things we really want and idealize, we often don't do. it's easy to lecture to someone else to do these things, but when they day arrives to live your words, i think... maybe tomorrow, maybe next week i'll have more time for that. ugh. such nonsense.
this morning i vow to respect myself enough to live the life i imagine. i'm awake, breathing, and healthy, so i absolutely deserve to be fought for. it's not easy. but we have to fight for the self that requires our utmost respect and devotion today and everyday.
