If you aren't good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you'll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren't even giving to yourself.
-Barbara De Angelis
Happy Day 29 everyone!
Day 29…my, my, my! How far we have come…yet we are not done yet! How did Day 28 go…and all of those hugs? I watched the videos again that I included in the e-mail and was inspired to make my own “FREE HUGS” sign. It allowed me to gather over 30 hugs in very little time – and I had a lot of fun doing it. What was your experience like? Please share with the community!
Day 29: It’s All Good!Today, your activity is to turn your hug inward – and love yourself! Take some nice reflection and listening time today – and then list all of the things you are grateful for in your life – RIGHT NOW! Make the list as long as you can – and try not to leave anything out – even the small things! If you are having a hard time thinking of things…what?...what have you been doing for the past 29 days? Think of all the experiences over the last month – and think about what you are grateful for. Remember, no one else did these things for you – it was you!
Gratitude List: Once you have made your list – take a few moments to post one or two things in the blog thread!
Competition vs. Cooperation: Last week as I was talking about living Yes and…I spoke about the model of competition vs. cooperation. In December, before coming up with the idea for 30 Days of YES – I posted a vlog talking further about this model – and how we really want to pay attention to our relationships and see if we show up in a competitive or cooperative mindset. Here is the link to the vlog: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TvfoBx0QzDc
YES and: Keep those e-mails coming! If you want to continue on after 30 days – please let me know so that I can put you on the new e-mail list. I will probably send one group e-mail inviting people to attend, but if I don’t hear from you after that – I will assume you don’t want to continue receiving e-mails. So, if you want to keep saying YES – let me know!
Overwhelmed: Phew! Who knew this simple idea of 30 Days of YES could be so complicated? As I allow this idea to grow, and start to put the framework of a business model around it – it doesn’t feel so simple anymore. It is all exciting – all invigorating – but after another brainstorming lunch – my head is still spinning! (Thanks Pete)
Not so fast: Once the 30 days is over – I will be soliciting you all for as much feedback as possible. This idea moving forward is going to build on the ideas you all share – and the value you received from taking on this challenge. I am so grateful for each of you – even if you have never shared or posted anything – I know you are out there! So thanks again!
Have a wonderful YES day!
