Quote Challenge - Day 3 of 3

This post is written for the 3-Day Quote challenge

I was wondering what to post for today; there are so many quotes, which I have used; and also for one A-Z challenge I used so many quotes.  While my mind was busy with these thoughts, I got a lovely message on whatsapp from one of my classmate that said: 

I felt very happy and joyful when I read this statement, not that I did not know or heard about this; but because so often I forget this aspect and don’t give myself enough attention.  Isn’t it Good news for all of us here on this planet.

So often we forget this aspect of our lives and take ourselves for granted; we give priority to others, their needs, their view points; their feedback considering others as very important and under valuing our own needs and sense of worth.

I am glad for this reminder once again to relook at myself with kindness and compassion and take initiative to exercise daily, go for nutritious food only, spend time with family; make time for what gives me joy and constantly be patient and kind to myself.

This quote also fills me with gratitude - encouraging me to observe my total myself every part of my being is working for me.  I take a look at myself in the mirror; look at my eyes and smile… affirm the goodness in me, pat myself for all that I was able to accomplish in the last 3 decades and say “ I am Once in a Life Time “

  4. Thanks for being here and adding some more quotes to inspire ..

  5. Dearest Angela, I am so pleased with your description of initiatives for once in a lifetime, so nicely detailed.
    At nearly age 84, I have been trying to put such thoughts into words, but you have helped be less speechless.
    A subsidiary comment that I feel I need to make, like a senile old professor, is that the older you get you are challenged to pay attention to all the beginning failings of the body, and it leaves less energy to pay attention to the initiatives that begin to feel like impractical theories.
    Therefore, I would like to offer my special advice to pay special attention to once in a lifetime when you are young and care-free about your health. With Gratitude.

  6. Dear Mr Joseph Rubin ! Its a pleasure to hear from you, and I appreciate you at your age to take this effort to not only read my post but also comment on it... thank you for being here, I feel honoured and I would definitely would like to take your special advice to pay attention to to once a lifetime at the moment... glad to connect with you..

  7. Beautiful reminder that we have one life thank you Genevive. Yes, we can take care of others willingly and joyfully but not neglect ourselves in the process.

  8. Thanks Susan for being here; I was thinking as my website is not operational, whether we will connect ? I spoke to one of my friends to help to get it operational again. I thank God I can still access and connect with you through http//livealifeofgratitude.blogspot.com. there is so much to learn... now I feel I must show a little more love to my blog and go for a simple design at least.. Even though writing has never been my priority; as I work full time at a university campus, I post whenever I can and want to...now I have started enjoying relating to interesting persons like you having meaningful conversation... I feel I should commit myself to write regularly... I have enjoyed almost all your posts Susan and I look forward to read your posts, thanks for inspiring, and thanks again for being here..
