Do me a favour: the next time you catch yourself being needlessly hard on yourself – for whatever reason – tell yourself to shut up. Literally, tell yourself out loud to shut the hell up. Cut yourself some slack.
Do me a favour: the next time you’re out by the clothesline hanging clothes or taking them down, close your eyes and breathe in. Savour the moment. Free your mind. Hell, become one with yourself: I’m not kidding – slip off your top. Slip out of your panties or your pair of pants. Unless there are certain circumstances, expose that beautiful self of yours to the world because you know what? You’re magical and unique.
Do me a favour: every once in a while – treat yourself to the pleasures of life. Have a coffee. Sneak some chocolate. Talk to a stranger. Buy that dress. Buy that expensive item you’ve been mulling over. Just do it. You’ve earned it. Enjoy the moment. Seize it.
Do me a favour: put on some ambient noise – something that settles you – the sound of rain, say, and undress. Lie there – in your safe spot – and meditate. Forget the troubles. Think about the sounds. Think about how your sheets feel against your skin.
Do me a favour: the next time you look in the mirror, tell yourself you’re beautiful. Do it every morning and every night for a whole week.
Maybe I’m asking too much, maybe I’m stepping on toes. But I feel like writing this. So hopefully it connects with you, makes you smile. Maybe it brightens up your day or night or week. That would be nice.
