That is not to say though that you should not take care of yourself, your body.I am just pointing out that, in a time when external appearance has become an issue of primary importance, we have completely neglected our inner world, our spirituality, our soul.Yes, we should take care of our body in every possible way, mind our health and well-being.Our body is the vessel,the vehicle if you will, that will assist us in our goals,to live our life optimally.The healthier it is, the more we can accomplish, the more we can contribute.
I am a firm supporter of the belief that women should take care of themselves and their feminine nature.It had been quite a while since I started doing it again.Nutritious food to give energy and glow to the skin.Lots of exercise to keep the body strong and push it beyond its limits.Relaxing baths to relax body and mind from every day concerns.Pampering yourself with body lotions.Wear something beautiful to enhance the feminine within.And most importantly, don't forget to play.Play is the spice of life.It keeps you young, curious and in that way you have to smile.With a smile you can deal with every obstacle more positively.Naturally, as I don't want to sound sexist, the same applies for men.
But please, let's not forget that true beauty lies within.In our heart.Our soul.The child within that we suppress for fear we don't appear adult and responsible enough.Everything we need is already ours.Beauty, wisdom, knowledge, love.It's all there.The light of our soul shines brighter than every other superficial beauty and appearance.The brighter it shines the more beautiful we become.So, tomorrow when you wake up, stretch generously and smile at the sunlit sky.Listen to the music of the birds.Smell the flowers.Allow yourself the luxury of enjoying the beauty of the day to come.Offer your thanks to the power that woke you yet another day and gave you the chance to live. Then, get up and look at yourself in the mirror.I have a feeling you will look at yourself differently.Your stride will be lighter,you stance more confident.Your smile will light up your image-from within.And then, go out and do something,anything that will add value to somebody else's life and give yourself yet another reason to smile.
P.S. What gives me another reason to smile these days, are the English lessons I started with my daughter.She's so great at it,so smart and it is such a pleasure to give her something else apart from being a mother to her.Now I can get to be a teacher to her as well.She has taught me so much already...time to give something back.We started with the alphabet.....so far we got to I,J,K,L.Going strong!
With love to you all,
