Do you say ‘no’ to your own good? Deny yourself simple pleasures? Yesterday I spent the majority of the day in a spiritual retreat facilitated by Mark Silver of Heart of Business (http://heartofbusiness.com). At one point, I knew it was important for me to rest a bit, and I started to lie down in my little bedroom nest…ignoring my inner pleading to go out into my backyard and soak in the beauty of nature on a glorious late spring afternoon.
Lying on the bed, I was roused by a clear, strong voice, “Are you going to DENY yourself the blessings of being in your beautiful backyard? Of soaking in the incredible beauty of nature, of the blessings you’ve been given?”
THAT was a message I couldn’t refuse! I got up, took my prayer beads, relaxed on a chaise lounge, and spent an hour soaking in the abundance, beauty, and blessings in my life. I am rich in love and well-being!
Do you deny yourself some of the good things in life? What are some of the simple things you don’t allow yourself to receive or enjoy?
The more I love being me, the more goodness I am able to accept with joy and appreciation!
