Happy Labor Day!

You're always doing them. Today I hope you get to take a load off & just D O   Y O U • Rest. Relax. Rejuvenate.  What if today you did even for just an hour or two something Y O U genuinely want to do? And enjoy it, be thankful for it. Soak it in. We labor and work and go go go all the time. I pray for each of you that today you breathe deeper, you get to do or better yet "not do" exactly what you want for a change AND allow yourself to enjoy it. Then I hope you get used to it and repeat often!! You will love "them" a whole lot better when you are also loving you and love is a verb just as much when it is pointed at yourself as when it is directed toward others. There is a difference in being selfish and loving yourself. I am in no way promoting selfishness but I'm dealing self love. Big difference. The Bible calls it the second most important commandment of all ! ! !


 “The second most important commandment is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭22:39‬ ‭GNT‬‬



Maybe the biggest part of your love walk you need to work on is the part toward yourself. It wasn't until I got this part right that I could begin to love others the way I longed to all along. It can be the missing ingredient in making relationships work...it's one few talk about but check this out...follow along. You're gonna love it! 

If you loved you, what would you do today? Let me know what all fun stuff y'all do or "don't do". If it's been so long since you have "done you" here are some ideas..... {I know --- may sound funny to some of you naturally relaxed people but I used to not even know what you would do if you had a lil extra time because I was so hard core work work work. For you workaholics who don't have any quittin' sense, this list is for you!}

Maybe lay in a hammock or read a book or go for a walk or play in the back yard with the fam on the trampoline or ride bikes or whatever rejuvenates you! Take a bubble bath, get a massage, give eachother manicures, play uno, clean out the junk drawer in your kitchen you have been wanting to do forever and play Fun happy music while you do it. I have a playlist just for stuff like that. Go for a swim in that pool you wanted so badly. Call a friend for coffee. There are no rules of what gives you peace. For someone a walk in the woods would terrify them thinking of all the critters and another it soothes. So do Y O U and make a list and an appointment for the next time you plan to do Y O U again! Love others as you love

Y O U R S E L F. .  


 ““Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.”

Happy Monday!
