Loving yourself....




I came across a quote by Jack Kornfield and if you believe in the power of self-talk,
Mr Kornfield has this to share..

"Begin to recite the following phrases directed to yourself.
You begin with yourself because without loving yourself it is almost
impossible to love others.
May I be filled with loving-kindness.
May I be well.
May I be peaceful and at ease.
May I be happy."


be good to yourself.....

What a stunning collage you have created to compliment the words. Both the quote and the collage are very powerful. And of course, you have included a bird in the mix.
