Many New Year’s Resolutions have been made and probably already broken in the past week. Resolutions to change money, dieting, and exercising habits. Promises relating to work, school, and personal changes. It seems every newspaper and magazine in December and January are filled with tips on becoming a better you.
In an article in one of those magazines, I read a simple sentence written by a contributor in which she said her resolution for 2015 was to treat herself like she treats her friends.
That one caught my attention. Not the usual learn to manage the clutter or run a marathon or pay off my credit cards. Treat ourselves like our friends, sounds simple, but what a good idea.
So how do you go about treating yourself like your friend?
Quickly forgive and make up.
A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked. ~Bernard Meltzer
Love you, no matter what.
Accept you as you are. A friend is someone who understand your past, believes in your future, and accepts you today just the way you are. Do this for yourself. ~Unknown
Remind you of your greatness.
My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
Make time for you. Make yourself a priority.
Believe in having fun.
See your positive side.
Treat yourself like your BFF.
