Someone special

Make it a point to do something today for someone special, someone whom you often take for granted, someone who deserves your full and complete support -- yourself!

Being good to yourself is not being selfish. It doesn’t mean you must ignore others. Rather, it makes you able to offer more value to the other people in your world when you take good care of yourself. Putting yourself down is of no benefit to anyone. Helping yourself to grow and build will provide you with more to give.

Be positive with yourself. Be kind and generous with yourself. When was the last time you did something nice for yourself? You deserve some special attention. Be good to yourself and that goodness will overflow into the world and the people around you.

— Ralph Marston
