The ABC's of Life...N is for Nurture

"Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think" ~Benjamin Disraeli

"First you need only look; notice and honor the radiance of Everything about you...Play in this universe. Tend all these shining things around you; the smallest plant, the creatures and objects in your care. Be gentle and nurture. Listen..."
~Anne Hillman

"Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opporunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream." ~Lau Tzu

Nurture your body...get plenty of sleep, eat fresh fruits & veggies, exercise, floss, drink water

Nurture your soul...do yoga, take a soaking bath, drink hot tea, listen to music, seek solitude

Nurture your mind...read, do puzzles, listen to podcasts, learn something new

Nurture your talent...take classes, spend time being creative, practice your craft

Nurture your dreams...take a chance, daydream, believe, take action, have faith

Nurture your friendships...call, write, email, text, send flowers, listen, meet for lunch

Nurture your family...fix healthy meals, be spontaneous, have fun, read together, give hugs

What are some other things that you nurture in your life? What do you do to nurture your body...your soul...your mind...your talent...your dreams...your friendships...your family???
