Life is not going to pamper us. But we can choose to pamper and love ourselves, for example; living that life with passion, drive, admiration – to admire yourself and let others to admire you.
It knocks you down, and you get up and walk, creep, limp, but walk. To nature, to guests, to the cinema, to the gym, to the psychologist’s office, to the cats’ shelter, to your inside, wherever you want, but move.
Even sharks die if they stop moving, and if we move forward without spiritual development, love, feeling and compassion, we die too – emotionally, even though we are physically living for a long time to come.
You do not blame anyone and anything, do not cry, but you go and go, seeking a way out and a light. Even where it looks, they can’t be.
After all, you are emitting the light that always burns within us, if we cherish it and not let the winds of emotion, ego or circumstance quench it.

Do you pamper yourself sometimes?
Are you spiritually developing with the years?
That’s good, dear, I am glad to hear that you learned to live alone and to be friends with yourself. I guess, it is not an easy task.
we have to take care of ourselves!
Correct. Who will do it better than we would do? We know themselves better than anyone else.
that is very true! we know us!
I love your last two lines.. be the light to the nations.. the scriptures say We can only be the light to the world if we can master over ego , our emotions and rise above our circumstances.
The light is the way in this cruel world.
No one can pamper us as well as ourselves, what needs to be considered is how and what the benefits are.
It is said that we must care about ourselves for the sake of our loved ones. If we love them, we cannot disappoint them with our illnesses, bad mood, depression and so on.
Your words remind me of flight attendants’ announcement before flying.?
Great post! I am happy to hear that everyone has answered yes so far.
Thank you. I am writing mostly for myself, to release myself from accumulated emotions, but if someone read and comments – I feel happy.
We all deserve to be pampered and I am always learning.
Having such a nice garden like yours, it’s easy to pamper yourself. There are many ways how to do it but not all of them fits us.
I do the best I can being on my own and take everything at its own pace. I start the day and end the day with prayer and I know the Lord guides me through my days. Me, myself, and I have become pretty good friends,
