I recently sent a holiday note to my e-mailing list. I asked that people take a moment out to appreciate their uniqueness and to become aware of the good within themselves. In addition, I asked that folks share 10 of their best qualities so that we could read and study them.
Have you ever noticed that when someone else notices what is good in themselves, it is easier for you to begin to notice what is good in you? What another notices becomes noticeable to the self. I think this is why it is inspiring for us to watch others follow their hearts and go for their dreams–we want the same for ourselves & the determination and stamina of others is hugely motivating!
Another feature of this is that as we become more aware of the good within ourselves and others, and as we appreciate this goodness more, i t e x p a n d s, becoming larger than it once was. If we take the time to remind ourselves about the good within, it usually becomes the fertile ground where our connection to our own inner guidance can grow!
I am so grateful that many of you were willing to share your lists with me so that I could share them with others. Studying this can only benefit us all.
If you happen to want to share your 10 best qualities as well, please e-mail them to me as soon as you can or comment on this blog!
Here are 2 that are quite beautiful:
Thank you for your holiday e-mail. This evening I was feeling more than a little dissappointed in myself when suddenly I knew there was some message for me in my e-mail.
There you were - and yes, I did need to remember your six facts! The one that specially struck a chord with me was ‘You will always be there for yourself’. Just at the moment I still do not know why it resonates with me at this time, but it does, so I am just feeling grateful for that at the moment.
Here’s my list of 10 things that I really love about me..
1) I’m super smart (no, really!). My brain makes things work for me.
