Loving Yourself

Posted by Mrs. W. on Feb 25, 2011

Love yourself…

The first and most important person to love is yourself or else you cannot truly love others. You practice loving yourself by taking care of your mind, body and spirit.
Take care of your mind:

  • go to school where there are many things to learn
  • complete your work and do it to the best of your ability
  • ask questions when you don’t understand something
  • read on  a ‘daily’ basis => this is HUGELY important
  • learn new things; take risks and believe that you can learn new things
  • discuss things with adults you trust, have interesting  conversations
  • learn about the things that interest you, be curious about many things
  • be aware of your thoughts… listen to the positive ones

Take care of your body:

  • eat healthy foods from all the four food groups; remember to include fresh fruits and vegetables every day
  • decrease the number of foods that contain large amounts of sugar, preservatives and additives
  • drink 8-10 glasses of water a day
  • exercise regularly => walk, run, take part in sports, dance
  • take vitamins and minerals or anything your parent/guardian feels is best for you; research what you out into your body
  • rest: you need 9-11 hours of sleep every night for your body and mind to restore themselves

Take care of yourself spiritually:

  • practice your religion if you/your family have one
  • make time daily for stillness, for ‘quiet time’
  • take time to reflect and pray
  • show compassion, forgive others
  • keep a journal to record your thoughts and feelings, dreams and wishes
  • discover what brings you joy and take part in it
  • surround yourself with inspiring quotes, pictures, music
  • read books by spiritual leaders you find interesting
  • spend as much time out in nature as you can
  • count your blessings; show gratitude; say ‘thank you’

Hope you enjoyed this.

Love

Posted by Mrs. W. on Feb 13, 2011

Love is a special feeling, the goodness in your heart. It’s a constant in all that changes in life. We are united through its power, and its energy moves us to reach out to one another. When we practice love, we overcome hatred, fear and suffering and create peace, joy and harmony. When you are being loving, you help other to feel important.

THAT’S the kind of world we want to create and live in!!!


You are practicing love when you:

  • treat others the way you want to be treated
  • say loving and kind things
  • share your things and your time with others
  • show affection
  • think loving thoughts
  • take care of the things you love

Questions to think about/journal about:

  • What are 3 ways you can show love for people (family and friends)?
  • What are 3 ways you can show love for animals?
  • List some things that you love other than people and animals.
  • How do you wish/want people to treat you?

And, since it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow, remember to tell the people you love that you love and appreciate them: your family, your friends and others. This kind of love is the one that connects all human beings to each other in a special way, which is different from romantic love.

Have a blessed day!


Connect to Your Dreams

Posted by Mrs. W. on Jan 16, 2011

To see within your heart is to understand what it is that you dream. Go as deep as you need too, to discover all that you are meant to be. Within you is the beginning of your journey. Go deep and catch a falling star, to discover where you are, as to where you desire to be. ~Gigi Galluzzo~

When you go within it gives you the opportunity to be still and quiet, to connect with your heart and your inner wise voice. This special place is where you can find the answers to questions you may have. It is a place to connect with the wonder of who you really are…. a magnificent, wonderful human being.

Go within. You will find all that you were ever seeking. You will find a fountain filled with life force forever flowing. You will discover who you really are and what you came here to do. We are all unique & here to bring our specialty to the world. What is it that is so unique about you that nobody ever had or ever will posses. ~Monika Burwise~
