Let's talk rose petals, right? Hmmmm, I think the saying really goes like this, "Let's talk turkey!" Since I don't know where that cliché comes from, I co-opted it, for my own use. Besides that, rose petals are much prettier, much softer, and much more fragrant.
Roses are such a beautiful flower. There are national parks & gardens and week(s) long celebrations dedicated to the rose. I live near Portland, OR, where we have a Grand Floral (Rose) Festival every June. Don't forget the Pasadena, CA, Tournament of Roses Parade and football game on every First of January, either.
I want to propose a Self empowerment Strategy for you to consider implementing.
Think about how you take care of your roses (or other favorite blossom/plants). You keep them watered, and fertilized, if necessary. You place them in a beautiful container that enhances their presence. You showcase them in a special room, on a special surface, in special light. You admire them, everytime you see them. You want them to last forever because of the joy they bring to you.
What would your world be like if you showed as much care and concern for yourself? Can you love yourself in the same way you love your flowers? Because, it really is important you DO love yourself. Also, it is important that you love yourself First!
Loving yourself first - that is what I call a "Self Empowerment Strategy." When you choose to love yourself, you are taking the MOST important and empowering step you could ever take. Only you can do that. Only you can love yourself first! When you make YOU the first priority, you will become a better friend, a better family member, a better co-worker, a better Human Being.
Isn't that what we all want? Let's all choose to love ourselves first, right now!
