Get in a comfortable sitting or laying down position and close your eyes. Take calm even breaths, listening to your breath as it enters and exits. Once you are reasonably relaxed and clear minded, envision a vase. You can put whatever design on it you like, something that makes you happy! You are going to put one flower in this vase now for each time you did any of these things today:
Each time you made someone smile or laugh today, even yourself.
Each time you’ve overcome a challenge, even things like getting something you needed while staying in your comfy spot on the couch through ingenuity.
Each task you completed today.
Each time you didn’t spend your energy on something it would have been wasted on.
Each time you complimented someone.
Each time you celebrated yourself or gave your self credit.
Each time you showed yourself or anyone else love.
Each time you received a compliment simply by saying thank you.
Each time you had a bad moment in your day and managed to pull yourself out of it.
Each time you practiced self care, even if it was just saying no to something you couldn’t do or making a healthy choice for yourself.
Now appreciate the beauty of the flowers, their rich colors, the beautiful fragrances they emit, the soft velvety petals on each one. As you do realize that each one represents a positive impact you made on the world today. See the full glory of just one days effort. Know that tomorrow it will be even more full and beautiful. In fact, put this intention on the bouquet you created and watch as the flowers transform into butterflies. Know that each one is carrying your love out into the world. Know that each one will be a moment of magic and joy for someone in the world. Imagine the smiles that appear on all the faces who see those butterflies and know that all that joy and magic originated from you, that it has always and is always within you and never diminishes. When you are finished enjoying this visual representation of your positive impact on the world, ask that the feelings you experienced stay with you, that you stay conscious of the joy and love you bring through the world.
