Many of us have little idea of the good happening in our life, or we compartmentalise good things with arbitrary rules about what counts and what doesn’t. In the past we may have been told it was selfish to look after our own needs, and we had no right to ask for what we needed, wanted or desired. We may have been told to reject or minimise complements or that people wanted something from us if they acknowledged a skill or our looks.
We might think when people step in and help is a good thing, and a real way they show you they care, but when people give a compliment, you put it down or become suspicious. We all have our own love language currency, but just because the deposits are not being made in our primary currency, doesn't mean good is not happening.
We could be pushing away positive reflective self-care and not even realize.
The philosophy in ReclaimMe! is that “all things are insights and a reflection of ourselves”, and we’re going to get into the habit of tracking, appreciating and acknowledging all forms of who we are.
There are two different things to track. 1. Reflective self-care that are positive acts demonstrated by others, 2. Self-Care what we see in and do for ourselves.
Reflective self-care is all forms of actions, complements, help, support encouragement, conversations, all things done by or interactions with others.
Self Care is how we listen, nurture and care for ourselves in thought, deed and action.
This activity shows the what you are putting out there, what you are attracting, and also to increase your level of gratitude when you’re feeling less than cared for, and want you are desiring. Don’t worry if all the things don’t happen on the same day, the more you get into the rhythm of noticing, the more you will see.
