You set new goals for the year, for your life. Where are you now in those goals? This is not a time to chastise yourself. Nor is it a time to give up. Now is the time to press forward, more diligently and more focused. Do so in an intentional way, but not in a burdensome way that brings grief to your soul when imperfection arises. This journey is just that – a journey of growth in love. And that journey includes learning to love yourself. For you cannot truly love your fellow man and the creatures of the Earth unless you first love yourself. Remember, self-care is very important. Not in an egotistical way, but in a way that nurtures you completely – mind, body, soul, and spirit. Love your neighbor as yourself. Seek to love and care for yourself, and your outpouring to others will come without effort.
