Harvesting Self-Love

Harvest Photo

During the month of August we focused on loving our body by being mindful of our body as an instrument vs. an ornament. We appreciated what our body does for us and expressed our gratitude.

The month of September is a month of harvesting. We are entering autumn and leaving summer behind. We will focus on leaving behind those beliefs, qualities and actions that interfere with our goal of Self-Love. Instead we will harvest those inner qualities that we want to “put on our table of life.” When you think of a Harvest Banquet of self-loving qualities, which inner qualities will you place on your table of life?

Here is a sample menu:

appetizer: forgiveness
salad: acceptance
soup: self-soothing
entree: love
side dish: mindfulness
dessert: patience

For the month of September you are invited to pick one or more inner quality that you want to release and/or develop. Share your progress with us at www.selflovewarrior.com by submitting your self-love post here, or post your progress on our Facebook page.

Blessings on your Self-Love Diet,

    A smart work ethic is my main dish. Sides would be conscious growth, balance, and of course love. Love can be my dessert.
