I have declared today as Self-Appreciation day

We have called today Self-Appreciation day. We have been sharing posts on our Facebook fan page (https://www.facebook.com/JoanMarieFanPage).

smile graphicIsn't it time to be the "STAR OF YOUR LIFE?" We have declared today to be -'Self-Appreciation Day'. I hope you are taking the time today to just breathe in the freshness of being you! This is a great day to honor you- and cherish who you are and what you hope to become. I am sure there is a piece inside of you that longs to have you connect with her or him. That piece is your soul. Do not be too busy to enjoy being you! Maybe it is time for you to recognize that caring about yourself is not only important but vital for your health and well-being. That is why, today we are suggesting that you occasionally pause and appreciate yourself.

I have had several people say: I prefer to have others appreciate me...I know who I am. My comments are--that is not the point! If you do not express appreciation to self, I believe you cannot expect others to appreciate you. This is not being vain, but rather acknowledging to self how you feel.Everything starts from the inside of you and works its way out. We all want to be appreciated by others but the most important person in your world is YOU and it is time to tell yourself that you are worthy and okay being whom ever you are at this moment. I am always telling my body how grateful I am to have it and my body responds to me in like kind and remains healthy flexible and vital. That is how I want to live my life- feeling alive!

So if you do nothing else today Send some loving thoughts to yourself and watch your energy shift feel a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face because you love and appreciate yourself for all that you are. Share appreciation with others and make someone else's day too. That simple gesture change a life and heal a relationship. Your willingness to make it happen is all that is needed. And remember, when you love yourself completely, nothing is impossible.
