Showering Kindness: yesterday’s post. I needed to hear that and it helped greatly. It helped me feel better throughout the day, be interested in doing more, including back in my studio, walking, though I cut it short by 2 laps due to thunder, just sitting out on the patio and front porch too as the sun went down, and eating right…for a change. Not sure if it has been the blog mix up or what, but I’ve beat myself mercilessly, eating it out. I kept wondering, where has my winter resolve gone, where I eat my egg whites, bran for lunch then main meal? It supplied all the nutrients I needed, left the afternoon meal something to plan and look forward to, and filled me with satisfaction.

Well, yesterday, with my reminder to shower my own self with kindness, I had a very good day. It’s hard, takes work and focus, being retired doesn’t mean giving up. And spring or summer, doesn’t mean everything is suddenly a breeze. I still need to work at maintaining myself in all ways, and that takes work. It does take work to keep a positive mind set, that I’m OK. That I don’t need to be out changing the world, to change my world. That’s enough, and that’s OK.



  1. Thanks for the blog. I am sort of tin the same place. I am realizing I don’t need to change the world and that working on my own world is gift enough. I too am focusing on what is the next thing that would nourish me in my day. It is about a lot more than food but certain takes in nutrition. I have lots of ideas on what would nourish me but still have difficulty doing these things at times. The question am I worthy keeps popping up.

    1. Nourish. I just love that word as it’s used for oh so many things besides food. Food is a poor substitute for the variety of human needs craving satisfaction.
      And that’s the very root of all of it, “Am I worthy?” The answer is always, YES! Unfortunately, years going as far back as childhood pound the opposite answer into me and I too easily forget and get off-track. Maybe I’ll carry a sign around my neck? I AM WORTHY
