Loving Yourself Enough!

I am back from a yearly vacation to the beach! We had a great time, once I reminded myself to love "moi!"

When we got to our roomy condo, everyone started to relax. There were eleven of us who took this trip! Our three girls, their families and my husband and myself.

I had set some core values before we arrived. I set the intention for:

1. Fun

2. Harmony between all

3. A connection with nature

4. Deeper spiritual connection

The second day we were there, I found myself in the kitchen most of the afternoon. I cooked the evening meal, cleaned the kitchen twice and made a breakfast casserole that needed to be refrigerated overnight. I also had put three loads of towels (mostly beach towels) in to wash, dried them, folded them & put them away.

While I was toiling away, everyone else was on vacation!!!! They were at the beach, reading a book, watching a movie, etc....

The thought came to my mind "Hey, Teena I love you too much to let you do ALL the work!" So....I took a long, hot bath, checked my e-mail and began a new book that I really wanted to read. I began to recognize things about me that I loved (some I already knew, but I began to add to that list). I took some deep breaths and decided the next day would be much different!

When I awoke the following morning, my oldest daughter announced that they had talked and I was not going to do any cooking that day! She had set up a schedule for who would cook which meals and everyone took turns! She said "that way, we will all get beach time & have time to relax!"
Thank you, Sweetie! and.....thank you, Teena, for loving yourself enough to let the 'good stuff' in!

One of our son-in-laws took care of the laundry that day, while the other one tidied up the condo! Hubby was the overseer and did a variety of things himself!

From that time on.....we all had a lot of time to relax, go to the beach & enjoy our vacation!

Wow! Things open up when we are being good to ourselves, no doubt.

Louise L. Hay says "Loving yourself is the most powerful thing you can do, then everything else flows!"

Loving yourself is simply respecting and appreciating "YOU!"

Are you being really good to yourself? Hope so! That's when the 'good stuff' flows right to you!

Santa Fe (pictured).....Such an awesome place to go! Full of ART...all kinds. I have a friend/family member who loves Santa Fe! She and her hubby frequent this 'piece of heaven' often.

She is a very talented Artist. She makes jewelry, belts, and one of a kind AWESOME furniture. In fact, my living room is full of it and there isn't a person who walks in who isn't in awe of it's beauty! She designed every piece of it.

Awhile back, she went to Santa Fe to check into putting her work in some of the high end shops. They were not receptive to her at all, even though her talented work speaks for itself. That didn't stop her. She went home and began to visualize, write about, think about her work being in just the right place to sell. This was not an overnight process (but not far from it), so in the meantime, she began loving everything and everyone, especially herself. She became busy conversing with silence, which then took her to creating, just the right place for her work. All the while, she was enjoying life and the little things took on a deeper meaning (in extremis.....watering her flowers, taking time to notice the birds, the butterflies, breath, smile, ice cream, naps, reading, painting & sipping tea on her Santa Fe-style porch......). She then began to visualize her shaking the hand of the owner of the perfect store, looking them in the eye, being confident, etc. So, is it any wonder when she went back this past weekend, one of the highest end shops of Santa Fe, accepted her work and were very receptive to her? This is a shop who takes on Shirley McClain's chakra healing jewelry. She left the shop an inch taller, with a new spring in her step, thanking the Universe for matching her vibe.

This did not happen by chance. It played out just as she planned, just as she created! She is in the flow....I'll say!

We can all be where Jude is.

Have you ever heard of Pray Rain Journaling? My friend Jeannette Maw has an e-book that she wrote and it is worth checking out!!! It brings awesome results. I could go on and on and tell you success stories that I have had with it, but I will save that for next time! Check it out

Until then....Namaste!
