I'd love to share some profound wisdom as a new year is fast approaching. But today, I needed to do something simple to take care of myself.
However, lately it seems that I put the key in my car, get on the freeway to go to work each day as I pray that it won't break down despite the brake light being on for some time now.
I'm happy to report that during my two weeks off from work, I got new brakes and four new tires! I know my work partner Heidi will be happy to hear this news. :)
Many years ago I read a book called "One Minute For Yourself". I remembered that one of the questions in the book was to ask yourself the question "what is one simple thing you could do right this minute to help you feel better?" The author gave an example of getting his car washed.
So on this December 31, 2011 morning I took my car to the car wash. Not a big deal but ...check this out!
And since I've changed my perspective as I've been counting my everyday blessings, I even noticed the beautiful waterfall at the car wash. Go figure ...
Let me ask you the question.
What one simple thing could you do right now to take care of yourself?
Blessings and love,
