Note to Self

Dear Self,

Hello, lovely. I've been neglecting you. Sometimes with all the bustle and stress of everyday life, I forget that you are the very most important thing, and for this I am deeply sorry. You deserve so much better than that.

I take you for granted all too often, and I desperately want to change this. I promise that I will try harder to treat you the way you deserve to be treated. I will allow you the sleep you need. I will feed you well. I will give you more time to be creative and I will I will allow you to fear and dream and hope and to be sad; I won't pretend that those feelings don't exist. I will tell you that I love you - often. I will dance with you and sing with you and I will do my best to make you feel beautiful and enchanting.

You deserve that.
We deserve that.

With so much love,

It's so easy to forget how much nurturing we need just from ourselves. I've been demanding time when I can, finding bits and pieces around to take moments to indulge and trying to eat right and exercise. In the middle of all I'm doing, I started writing a novel. I'm not forcing myself to accomplish lots, but the space to get my thoughts down means so much.
Hope you find time like that too, Ingrid.

true words you wrote here. we use to forget to think about ourselves. It's necessary to take a step back and ti find time for yourself.

thank you for this beautiful post and your comment, dearest.
