I’ve been feeling calmer and more settled this week. When memories of past difficulties randomly wander into my thoughts, I am taking a moment to ask myself, “Okay, how is this relevant to what is happening right now?” My internal voice does not ask this in a snarky or critical way, but with a more accepting mindset, like I am kindly opening a door to give my subconscious a fresh view and more choices. Maybe there’s no answer—but good things can come from just being open to listening.

Nurturing Thursday was started by Becca Givens and seeks to encourage self-nurturing and to “give the planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy.”


  1. Hi Meg, I love this post! I’m copying the question in my journal. Some thought is being persistent in my mind these days, they don’t have any relevance right now. Thanks so much! Have a lovely weekend!

    • Wishing you a wonderful weekend too, Elizabeth! I believe we need to be persistent also, in asking those thoughts why they feel they are relevant. 🙂
