Buy Yourself Flowers

The power of flowers comes from something in addition to their beauty, scent and esthetic. The power of buying yourself flowers comes from believing you deserve them. That word, “deserve,” is so often given negative meaning as in “she’s selfish.” But we think there’s another way to look at this. The act of giving ourselves small gifts that serve no purpose other than to bring joy is important. Practicing nurturing ourselves is a step toward believing we are worthy of joy, beauty, kindness and pleasure. It’s along the same line as stopping ourselves from negative self talk. Giving ourselves small gifts is a way of speaking positively to ourselves with actions rather than words. And flowers aren’t the only way to do this. Giving ourselves the gift of a quiet moment, a walk, a rest or simply a pause in our daily activity for no other reason than “I want to give you this gift,” is similar. If the pause is accompanied by the thought “I’m so stressed,” that doesn’t have the same impact as “you deserve a little break.” So what will you give yourself today just because you deserve to be nurtured by you? Remember, the power of buying yourself flowers comes from believing you deserve them.
