Have you fallen in love with yourself yet? I don’t mean like Narcissus in Greek mythology. Rather, love in the sense of full acceptance and appreciation of who you are.
It’s my perspective that the most important relationship we’ll ever have is the one with ourself. By loving and caring for ourself, we’re able to give our best to others. That’s why I carefully tend my inner-landscape; why I nurture my inner-ecology.
Gardening from the inside out — a few of my tips:
- Focus on my strengths
- Don’t compare myself to others
- Cultivate an attitude of gratitude
- Treat myself with respect — body, mind, and spirit
- Accentuate the positive
- Be myself
How do you tend your inner garden?
