The Most Beautiful Thing We Can Do for Ourselves.

The most beautiful thing we can do for ourselves

Is to be true to ourselves

To what we like

To what we want

To how we feel

To who we are

To do what feels good

And right

And important to us.

To connect to our hearts

And what we love

To seek understanding

Self-understanding

An inner understanding

Of ourselves.

It’s to build awareness

Self-awareness

Awareness of ourselves.

It’s to sit with ourselves

And be present

Soft

Gentle

Warm

Loving

And present.

Aware

Self-aware

It’s to seek understanding

Self-understanding

A better understanding of ourselves.

It’s to be tender with ourselves

When we feel tender,

Or ache

Or feel sad

Or afraid.

The most beautiful thing we can do for ourselves

Is to be present

And loving

To hold space for ourselves—

For all of ourselves

Including the parts that don’t feel so nice

Or warm

Or loving.

It’s to sit with ourselves

And learn from our fears

The inner beliefs that don’t serve us,

That filter and tinge and taint

The world we see.

It’s to understand our triggers

Our lessons

The places where we struggle

And the spaces where we feel warm

Soft

Loving

And settled.

The places that feel like home

It’s to connect with ourselves

With what we like

With what we want

With what we love

With what makes us feel alive

Connected.

The most beautiful thing we can do for ourselves is to be true to ourselves,

Always.

To be present

And aware

Self-aware.
