The quiet of mornings, the smell of coffee, my friend's laughter, cooking with my mom, the WCC, showering at the end of the day listening to music, car rides, the sun.
Imagine yourself as a friend or someone you deeply love, what are some actions and practices of care and love that you would want them to show you, and how can you do that for yourself?
I would want me to be listened to. I would want me to take breaks and find happiness. I would want me to eat food and get rest. I would want understanding for myself. I would want love. I would want closeness & comfy blankets & warmth. I would want safety and moments of peace. I would wish success upon myself in only the general sense that I wish I would be proud of myself. I would grant myself hope and confidence and optimism and belief. I would grant myself forgiveness for the past and in the present moment. I would separate my mistakes from myself. I would see the best in me. I would allow myself to be, alongside my faults and failings that I would see as only another part of me.
