Loved these...

I really want this and this.  How cool is that?  a daily, weekly etc. checklist for self-care.  and a deck of cards with the same sort of idea.  Things to brighten the day.  When I have income again, I'm totally going to order at least one, if not both of these.  And, for the list, read the blurb about how she came up with it.  So similar in concept to the reason I make a daily 5 list every day.

And, I totally identified with Susan in this post.  A couple years back, a dear friend of mine gave me some homework.  The job was to make a list of 25 things I loved about myself.  It took me nearly 10 months, and I finally finished it in part because she told me that every birthday that passed before I gave her the list would add an item to the list, and I was already finding it extremely difficult and couldn't imagine having to add extras to my list.  In any case, I loved what Susan had to say, and I loved the thing she likes about herself.  I think it's really cool when we get to see tangible growth in ourselves, since it's so often so intangible, and that's what Susan's words made me think of tonight.
