Happy Thoughts – Looking After #1!

image

Today let’s talk about looking after number one.

Some people think that’s a bad thing.  That it means we are self centred ..
selfish ..don’t care about anyone else.

  But actually that’s not true.  Looking after number one – yourself – shows that you do care about others because you want to give them the best of yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself and your abilities,  who will?  We don’t have to get permission… to have someone tell us …that we are worthy, that we have a talent, skills for example, positive helpful energy to share with the world.

We must nurture  our own selves. We must take good care of our health so that we have the energy to do what we need to do … so that we have the energy to believe that we can do what we need to do,  and to have the energy and will to accomplish it.

If we are looking to others for this core support, it’s not going to happen.

If we don’t have that deep down ‘I am worthy’, ‘I am taking care of myself’ energy; if we look to others to provide it for us, it can be taken away.

Because other people have their own needs,  their own lives,  their own priorities their own agendas.

Some of those agendas may not be  in our highest good,  because they may feel in competition with us, or they may just have their own concerns to address.

Yes we have to be open to people wanting to help us, wanting to love us, wanting to care for us, and we do the same to others; But we have to have a deep, as unshakeable as possible,  believe in ourselves and love for ourselves.

That’s my interpretation of looking out for number one… self preservation,  self love self belief, self confidence,  and then that flows out from us  to care for and nurture them.

So how do we get there? Maybe with affirmations, by reading  books and things that lift us up.  By  having a little think about what are we good at.  What are our  talents?  What  valuable thing do we have to share with the world?  Develop that skill.  Grow confident in it, and then  share it with others as a means of financially supporting you self and as one channel of support for your own  self & growth.

Here’s a podcast version of today’s blog, along with an affirmation:

So, let’s share! How do you define taking care if yourself, and how do you make sure to do this daily, while still being aware of the needs of other people in your life? Feel free to leave a comment. Let’s all help each other!
