Daily Dose of Sunshine, Day 8: Love Yourself First

Before you fall in love with anyone else, take a moment and tell yourself, ‘I love myself’. Love yourself first today. Shower yourself with self-care, self-love and gratitude. Tell yourself and believe, with conviction, that your self-love comes above your love for everyone else.
You may think that loving yourself is selfish, but its not. Always remember, that you cannot water from an empty glass; so fill yourself up to the brim and overflow with self-love. Because you can only give and receive love from others, when you have enough love for yourself.

Daily Dose of Sunshine, Day 6: Rest, But Don’t Quit

We often let our work, home, families, dreams, aspirations, responsibilities get the better of us. We let ourselves believe that the only way to success is to be absolutely exhausted and burnt out. I think that’s going to get us nowhere. Of course, we can only achieve our goals and dreams and fulfill our responsibilities by working diligently, but we must also learn to rest and breathe once a while.
Inhale, exhale.
Inhale, exhale.
Consciously focus on just breathing sometimes. Only for a minute or two a day. And in that moment, think of nothing else.
And when all else fails and your path looks bleak, read a book, take a nap, wake up next morning and find the will within yourself to start over.
