How do you treat your best friend? Do you check in regularly? Do you give your best friend gifts, and nice little surprises? Of course you do. What if you were your own best friend, and checked in with yourself? What if you listened to your inner voice, telling you what you need. If you were your own best friend, you would not shrug off that inner urging to get rest, to relax more, or to rev yourself up, by going dancing or walking. Your body is constantly sending you messages. It is when you do not listen to them, that you get yourself in trouble.
If you were your own best friend, you would take yourself to nice places. You would take yourself to lunch at a café by the beach, or go to the latest movie. You would be eager to please yourself, and pat yourself on you head, for doing all the hard work you do in life. A best friend is eager to share a good time, and revel in the enjoyment of life.
If you were your best friend, you would pamper yourself. You would have a spa treatment, go to the gym, and take a sauna. You want your friend to stay healthy and happy. Instead of giving your best friend gift certificates for pampering services, you will take your best friend in person! You care about your best friend. You want your best friend, to be around for a long while. You love yourself.
You tell your best friend nice things. You remind your best friend, of his or her, beauty, generosity, intelligence, and charm. You like to build your best friend up, and show appreciation, to your best friend. You enjoy the warmth and happiness you give your best friend. . When you talk to yourself, and remind yourself of your special qualities, you heighten your wellbeing, and increase your confidence. You deserve to be recognized for the wonderful person you are.
You like to surprise your best friend. You buy tickets for a play, or plan a day of shopping and lunch. When you get paid, you do not mind putting a little aside, for that special time with your best friend. Put a little aside for yourself, and buy yourself a new outfit, or a new CD to go home to listen to, with a glass of wine or a cup of tea.
You can be your own best friend. No one will value you as much as you do. In fact, others will take a cue from how you treat yourself, to how you should be treated by them. If you are your own best friend, you do not let others trample on you. You are special and you know it. Yes, you are a work in progress, and you are not perfect, but you are darn close to it.
You are an amazing person, who has greatness to give the world. You are here for a special reason, so watch out world. You are a burning star, ready to accomplish your dreams! With that said, celebrate yourself. Take yourself out for a nice lunch, and catch that movie you have been wanting to see. You are your own best friend, and you do not wait for the good things, you want and deserve in life. You go out and make them happen!
