Was listening to Oprah's interview with author Laura Day on XM radio the other day. I barely caught any of it, but Oprah mentioned a suggestion in one of Day's books (I think the book is called Welcome to Your Crises) that said, every time you pass your reflection in a mirror greet her and say, "Hello Sweetie!"
Imagine greeting yourself with the same warmth and love and enthusiasm you would your little ones?
I've been doing this as I plow in and out of every room, unpacking. Most of the closets in this old house have full length mirrors behind the doors.
I gotta say....it takes me back a little, and then puts a little spring in my step.
I think we could all use a little more self love.
