If I Could Choose

banquet-table

I got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and I had this blog in my mind!  The thought occurred to me, “If I could choose a banquet of inner qualities, what would my menu consist of?”

I wrote them out on a piece of paper before going back to bed. Here is my menu which will guide me this day.

Appetizer: Playfulness

Side dish: Laughter

Entree: Joy

Dessert: Contentment

I can easily fall into unconsciousness and forget that I do get to choose. I am remembering this morning, and I choose the above Harvest of inner qualities for this day. What will you choose today?

I invite you to share what inner qualities you are choosing to bring to your table in a comment to this post, in a self-love post or on the Self-Love Diet Facebook page.

Blessings on your Self-Love Diet Journey,

Michelle E. Minero MFT
