I Love Me

Yesterday (Wednesday, 19th June 2024), I spent the afternoon with my niece Rosie, 3 and 3/4 (the 3/4 matters – ALOT!) and Nephew Leo (18 months). They had stuffed me into their little playhouse in the garden (see pic), and out of nowhere, Rosie grabbed Leo, hugged him and gave him a big kiss. SO CUTE!

“Ah, that’s lovely, Rosie. Do you love Leo?” I said.

“Yes,” she said emphatically.

“Who else do you love?” I asked.

Rosie started to reel off all of the members of our family, including Uncle Paul, Uncle Matt, Nanny, Mummy, Daddy and so on.

“Ah, that’s so lovely, and we all love you!” I said, thinking that she had finished. What happened next made my heart swell.

“And I love me as well!” Said Rosie with great pride.

“Oh, WOW, brilliant, I am so pleased to hear you say that! It’s really important to love yourself. Well done you, you are so clever!”

It’s easy to think it’s just cute coming from an almost 4-year-old, and the cynic in us could say it won’t last. But, it reminds me that at any time, we can choose to shift or renew the relationship we have with ourselves. We can choose to love ourselves, be kinder to ourselves and treat ourselves with care and compassion.

Let’s all be more like Rosie.

 

 

My Loves, it has been so long since I have written anything that is not masters related; it feels rather lovely. I feel like Lady Whistledown lol. This blog is designed to give you quick little doses of inspiration.

The other evening, the words of one of the wisest people of our time, Dolly Parton, came to my mind…

“I always say I’m made of music” – “I’m made of dreams. I’m made of love” 

What are you made of?

Give yourself a minute to feel into that question…

Right now, do you feel like you are made of stress, confusion, wonder, calm, and so on?

If you don’t like what you’re made of right now, you have the power to shift it to what you’re really made of. Love, joy, peace, wisdom, compassion, resourcefulness…

It might be that you need to take some positive steps to shift into what you’re truly made of, but you will get there.

Big Love
