Honor Yourself

If someone else does not give us the appreciation we deserve it does not mean we are unworthy.  Do not let your self value depend on the actions or inaction's of others.

Love yourself first.  Treat yourself with attentiveness that your spirit may thrive.  Do you wait for someone else to cook your meals or do your laundry?

If your partner is having a bad day, or week, or month don't let their issues become your issues.  You cannot handle their life for them.

Light some candles, put on your favorite music, fill up the tub with scent and bubbles, bring a good book and go soak for awhile.

Paint your toe nails.  Have a glass of wine.  Let your partner know you're taking time out from their personal crisis and that your own self needs attention.

Do not expect anything from them.  Have a self-appreciation party for one.  You deserve it.  Invite the angels.  They love a party of the spirit.

When you do interact with your partner treat them with the kindness of self, but let them know this is a day of self-recognition not resolution.

They can schedule an appointment another day, another time.  This time is your time.  Too often in a relationship we put the needs of another ahead of ourselves and we become a sounding board, a dart board, or a pin cushion.

We feel that what they repress elsewhere is expressed to us.  Or they become moody and we become the dentist, trying to pry the problem out.  Not today!  Today is your time to recharge your love energy.  To reconnect with your spirit of self discovery and self-indulgence.

We are not defined by the conditions of others or our experiences.  To take time to know yourself puts you in touch with your true feelings.

It releases the resentments that have been building up.  It puts things in perspective.  You need to honor the child of God that you are.  That is enough truth for today.
