Can I tell you a secret? There’s a little game I’ve been playing with myself.
I give myself points every time I do a good thing, a mitzvah, a thing I’m proud of.
And those points are redeemable in acts of self-love.
I treated myself to a healthy homemade lunch and also a fancy dinner with lots of sauces.
I ate 3 mini brownies on Thursday.
I told a guy I liked that I liked him.
I painted my nails.
I took myself to yoga.
When I do things I respect I think I’m worthy of love. And then I give that love to myself.
When other people do things I respect I think they’re worthy of my love. And similarly deliver. Easy simple rules.
