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.....
