It’s been a minute but I am back with another PBS Blog Podcast. Today we are talking about the language of love. The language you use when you speak about yourself is what is eventually manifested in your life.
I AM a PUBLISHER. I WILL publish books. I CAN publish books. I MUST publish books.
I AM paying this bill. I WILL pay this bill. I CAN pay this bill. I MUST pay this bill.
See how powerful these statements are as compared to: I want to publish books, I wish I could publish books….? Sounds kinda weak now right? Right.
When we start to infuse this kind of language into our lives we take back control of how we feel.
Listen to Language of Love now on Soundcloud and don’t forget to subscribe for notification of new episodes.
So, as promised before I went on break, Throwback Thursday is going to now be split between 90s Throwback Jams and Throwbacks that go way back. 90s Throwbacks for those of you new to this blog will be headlined “90s Throwback Thursday Jam”. Jams going back prior to the 90s will just be headlined Throwback Thursday Jams. AND as much as I LOOVVEEE 90s love songs and as tempted as I was to post one its not really fair since it is 80s on back week lol. So without further ado, enjoy a Throwback into the days of Cooley High with The Four Tops Reach Out, I’ll Be There. I find this song really uplifting.
Be good to yourself.
It’s easier said than done, but extremely important to remember. Humility does not ask that we think less of ourselves, just that we think of ourselves less. Many of us spend our days constantly looking out for others and it is a great work. We encourage, inspire, share, and overall put others above ourselves. But we have to remember to give this same kind of love to our own selves too. People who are good to themselves are strong enough to be good to others. On the other hand, there’s a saying that says to beware when a naked person offers you a shirt. What kindness can I offer you if I don’t first have the same kindness for myself? We have to learn to humbly accept compliments, rest when we need to, and treat ourselves every now and again. It’s not asking too much to implement some kind of exercise routine for your physical body, reading for your mind and prayer and reflection for your spirit. Our worlds can be so chaotic at times that we may even need to pull away for a while to tend to ourselves. This is not just a suggestion, but we need this. If you can’t function you can’t perform. We need to take care of ourselves so that we can continue to be of service to others. So take some time today and be wonderful to yourself this Wednesday.
