Thank you to everyone who’s shared ways that they’ve created a bit of nurture for themselves!
Here’s some of the nurturing that’s been happening so far…
- Taking time to enjoy flowers in the garden
- A bit of a declutter
- Cleaning that smudgey mirror you look in every day
- A walk in a place you love
- Remembering experiences and skills you haven’t consciously used in a while
- Looking at beautiful pictures
- Listening to something uplifting
- Just sitting and remembering those that help you out
- Relaxing with a jigsaw
Plus remember that bonus ball? Simply thinking about what you might do today to nurture yourself a little is itself nurturing… bargain 😀
If you’ve just joined this blog, you might be wondering why we are blethering on about nurture. It’s simply because I believe we can give more and live more when we are well nurtured – it’s a more compassionate and capable state than when we’re running on half empty … or on fumes!
P.S My moment of nurture today? Browsing through my favourite quotes… inspiration, acceptance, down to earth wisdom. More on those in the next few days.
Thank you, for shifting my focus a little everyday. This has been a tough week and smiles and nurtures desperately needed. If I’d know how to share pictures in this blog, I’d have a wonderful nurturing one that gave me the little extra smile on my way to work this week.
*hug* Thank you Melanie, those pictures sound lovely. Keep nurturing those little extra smiles *hug* And P.S. You’ve given me an idea… Would you email the photos to me? I can set up a daily nurture gallery on this website to share photos that people want to send in 🙂 xx
And watching my cat trying to catch Mosquitos with his mouth is another one…
Haha! That would make me smile lots! I wonder if he caught any??!
This is such a great idea, Sarah and it’s inspired me to look for those nurturing moments. A couple more that made me smile…
Wednesday evening, I came out of the gym just as the sun was setting in a mackerel sky. Geese were flying over – honking. I just leant on the top of the car watching for a minute or two.
Thursday morning’s moment was as simple as letting two packed trains go by and waiting for one with a seat! That felt good too!
Ahhh thank you! What lovely moments, beautiful skies – and beautiful practical nurture in rush hour! Thank you so much for sharing your smiles 🙂
