Love Yourself Properly

My dear friend, Beth, passed this along to me. I wanted to share it with you.

Love Ourselves Properly
Thomas Mertonn

"We do not exist for ourselves alone, and it is only when we are fully convinced of this fact that we begin to love ourselves properly and thus also love others. What do I mean by loving ourselves properly? I mean, first of all, desiring to live, accepting life as a very great gift and a great good not because of what it gives us, but because of what it enables us to give others."

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. Beth
2. New confidants
3. the journey
4. an unexpected "soak" at the springs
5. the sound of running water
