Being your own best friend


Maria’s Midweek Mindfulness 


The Wednesday Whisper



How would you like to treat yourself?

Many people I speak to find it really easy to be in service of others and find it very difficult to be in service of their self. The most obvious example of this is the personal ‘to do’ list. I can easily foil a person’s unconscious plan to make their own life less wonderful by asking a really simple question:

‘Would you give that ‘to do’ list to anyone else and expect them to feel it is a reasonable ask?’ Not surprisingly the answer is usually ‘No’.

And then, as January seems to have slipped away, I ask myself the same question.

Some time ago, Marshall Rosenberg said ‘Only do something if you can do it with the joy of a small child feeding a hungry duck’. This is the most important measurement I use in my life. Remembering to use it always changes the landscape.

What does your ‘to do’ list look like and can you do each task with the joy of a small child feeding a hungry duck?
