DAILY LOVE TIP – Saturday September 17, 2011

Hello Lovelies,

Today I am sharing some very poignant pieces. My request is that after you look at them you find someone to share with about the impact for you.

MIRRORING PRACTICE: share with someone about the impact of these pieces for you and have them MIRROR you. Look at it both from the perspective of being an adult and/or parent as well as what was true from these for you as a child... What stands out for you♥ Have them include VALIDATION and EMPATHY.

With what is your child living♥.....

Children Learn What They Live
By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

Todays’ Addition to Shelton’s list of ♥favourite things is……marzipan - a ritual/routine that Shelton has very soon after we arrive in a new city is to search for the chocolate shop so he can check out=taste=eat the local brand of marzipan with dark chocolate. He is a connoisseur! Recently he has become very creative and is making his own raw version....... :O)

sending much LOVE and tenderness and softness to you as you reflect, Susie.

Hello Eliza♥, Welcome to my blog. Thanks for visiting and for your delight. As I said to Cathy from Canada yesterday I love the sense of our blog community being around the world. I presume by moving to East Kilbride you are still in Scotland. I had a quick walk around your blog – http://feodoraslane.wordpress.com/ and was also delighted by your poems and your wordplay – especially ‘Do Not’ and ‘I Met The Spring’ and ‘No More’…. Please visit often. Love, Susie♥
