“At the heart of every flower
are nurturing elements that help make it so beautiful,
our souls are like that, I think!” Penny L Howe
How we feel about ourselves – how we feel about each other. There is a direct correlation, you know. We ALL need to feel needed, cherished, important, of value. And the less we feel this way about ourselves, the less apt we are to reach out to others, to share and shore up their weakness and needs through love and care … even as they do for us.
At the heart of the matter is – the heart. All our hearts, the universal symbol of love. And our heart needs constant attention and nourishment in the form of love. So where to begin?
Well, I’d say with love of self, only as it relates to you deciding you are a good and capable human being. Start there. Then begin to reach out to others. You’ll find your own self worth grows in direct proportion.
Remember we all need nourishment – not just from food and drink, also in the form of emotional love and caring to insure our well-being!
Happy beginning of your New Year ~ and do take care of you! 🙂
