Making time for ourselves
In order to invest in ourselves, we have to make time for US! Proper time to get to know ourselves. Today I did just that.
I made time to write 27 qualities, yes 27 qualities, that I possess. It's something I did a few years ago, which was actually an initiative given to us in the Godllywood, which is a group at my church which works exclusively with women.
I was getting ready this morning and it came to my mind to do it again, so on my commute to work l, started my list.
At the beginning, I found it quite hard (ironic how we can quickly find faults but not good points), but after number 8, qualities were popping up like popcorn lol.
By knowing my qualities, I know myself and can work on developing them to become better.
I decided to take time out at lunchtime and have a good walk along the canal to reflect on my qualities and think of ways to develop them further.
Rather than just always looking at other people or looking at ourselves through their eyes, dwelling on our flaws, what we don't have or who we haven't yet become, we should focus on and nurture the good qualities we already have, which will inevitably help us to grow and eventually we'll acquire more qualities and become the person we've always wanted to be.
