In the first quarter of this year, I set up a plan to love myself in three ways. The plan is as simple as one, two, three; I will take good care of myself, I will read, I will write. That’s it.
As always, a simple plan does not equal simple execution.
I translate the “take good care of oneself, read and write” as three things that I should do daily.
Three (new) things that I should do in a daily manner, that was the plan, and of course, I failed, or at the very least I failed to achieve by the standard That I set myself. To add three new habits in a day is a very pompous attitude, I neglected the fact that it’s very difficult for me to stick to one good habit for more than 3 consecutive days.
But the willingness to do this “self-love project” was not passing by, the “take good care of oneself, read and write” new habits are not strictly limited to one or two activities, I then realized that they may come in many forms and manifestations.
at the beginning of April 2021, I started to do meditation, I also started to run; these activities are my “take good care of oneself” routine, I read and I write daily in this blog… And the last five months has been a colorful journey of this self love project. There was countless ups and downs. Have I succeed to install these three new habits? Hmm…. It’s safe when I say.. I can’t pass a day without thinking about them… It’s permanently on my mind now.
Cheers, may you be content with yourself.
