Just because I can’t do it today, doesn’t mean I’m not going to be able to do it some day
This film is for all of us who’ve ever had a day where doubts danced about… for all of us that have feared that we’d never move forwards from where we are, or where we were.
I fell many times… but I got back up again
As nurturing films go, I think this is my personal favourite. The quotes on this page, and the feeling behind them, have sustained me on the days when I’m feeling totally bleaaaargh.
I started to believe it could happen…
I’m not saying that belief is the only thing you need – a bit of action and practise is rather essential too. But without the belief in yourself – the motivation to take the next step, practise and do the bit you can do is oh so much harder to find.
And WITH that self belief … wow. You can find yourself gradually pootling into territory way better than you ever dreamed was possible!
Never underestimate what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself
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!
