What advice would I share with another on taking care of yourself first? Sustainability begins with you. Here’s what you said…

Slide 32: 

Everything that is meant to be will happen, love (live?) without regret, and never ignore the butterflies. Be whole, holy & healthy – live authentically, love deeply, dance & sing. Be peaceful within and allow that peace to radiate outwardly to others. A man must always try to exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for.” ~Robert Browning Enjoy every moment in life whether good or bad. 3 L’s…Live, love, laugh Treat yourself to the nicer things in life every once in a while before giving others nice things. See to your own happiness, so you can bring positive energy to another! Do something you love to do every day. If at first you don’t succeed, try again. Take time to reflect what your passion is! Meditate - Make time in your day to slow down, take a step back and breathe. Be open and ready for all “opportunities.” With God all things are possible. Don’t judge a book by its cover. Go outside with a clear mind. (Pictures of flowers decorated it.) Winners never quit; quitters never win! Your first commitment in life is to yourself. Love yourself, take care of your body. Be true to yourself. Live, laugh, learn. Jump on it. Don’t forget to ask for help! People, Families, The Universe Believe in yourself, stay the course with your core values—keep the “garbage” and “clutter” cleared out. “Be who you are, & say what you feel. Because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” ~Dr. Seuss Breathe deeply…Listen…Speak your truth! Love yourself and give of yourself, openly and freely. Positive thoughts & energy are multiplicative. One person can change the world, that person can be You. If your heart is always open LOVE will always find its way in. Be truthful to yourself always and to others! Being selfish is the highest form of honor & respect for the Divine Being you are. Take responsibility to be filled with Love and then give of the overflow. Fortitude & drive to never give up. The organization must be the reason –not personal ego. Get off the dance floor when the action is taking place and & get up on the balcony to understand the dynamics of what is going on. Courage is not the absence of fear but the triumph over it! +Fail, know how you failed, then take action not to ever do it again. Smile, you’re beautiful, love yourself the way you are. YOUR Self-Sustaining Words of Wisdom

Slide 33: 

Have the courage to make a difference & Be willing to try new things that may be beneficial in your life. Live Your Life. Be accountable to your actions and everything you say. “If you want to make the world a better place, you need to look at yourself and make a change.” ~Michael Jackson Do not procrastinate. Be kind to yourself and others. ~Love yourself before you can love others. ~Know your goals in life. Exercise and quit the junk food! Believe in yourself. I need to love myself first. Be kind each day in gratitude and peace. Find joy in each moment. Always strive to do your best in life. Do your best. Be your best. Look your best. Relax, it doesn’t matter that much. Find a physical activity you like and do it! I ride a bike/run/swim. Sleep! Dare to dream Live in the now Yesterday is gone--tomorrow may not be Give up thinking it is all about you. Don’t take it personally. Really look or listen, seeking to understand the other side. Make time to build Trust. You give yourself your best advice. When in doubt, seek moderation. Find time for yourself. More Advice from YOU to OTHERS
