One of the most profoundly rewarding acts of self-care I have ever done: Over the summer, before I would go to sleep (even for a nap if I took one), I would ask for love to be given to everyone I could think of. I spent extra time/"prayer" on loved ones and people I felt anger towards. I also made an effort to forgive myself in these moments. It gave me a sense of comfort, encouraged my mood, and improved my relationships. In fact, I will start doing this again.
Thats sooo good!!! I used to do that too, thinking of the people in my life, how grateful i am for them (even if they taught me tough lessons) and wishing them love. It was kind of like praying even though im not religious. I think i also need to start doing that again :-))
