Stop and consider the message of this picture. Do you agree that gratitude is a form of self-love? This is an interesting concept, but one that is important to consider. This month is commonly the month where we really focus on being grateful, however, it may not have crossed your mind to take a moment to thank yourself.
It is not uncommon to get lost in meeting the many needs of those around us, that we forget to show that same consideration to ourselves. The beginning of each year we start out with new goals and aspirations and let's be honest - most of us fall short at some point. Perhaps we are impatient with our progress. It is easy to focus on the negative aspects or shortcomings, but that is not a healthy way to look at life.
Our challenge for you this week is to give yourself a break. Focus on the amazing efforts you've made thus far and for the new things you've learned this year. Likely you have faced some difficult challenges. Celebrate the fact that you can "do hard things" and that you are still alive to tell about it.
We honor each of you for the hard work and efforts you've put forth this year. Part of taking care of ourselves includes good hygiene, adequate rest, exercise and paying attention to the messages our bodies are sending.
The end of the year is a great time to take advantage of dental benefits that have been unused. Give yourself a gift of thanks for taking care of your dental health. Your mouth will thank you!
