The Simplicity Series: Simplicity #5 – Personal Sanctuary

We build and maintain relationship with people and society all the time. For some of us, this is not only a job but also a lifestyle.

What I have realized is that I am so busy in my relationship with others that I have neglected my relationship with myself. I have always believe that what define us most is not the relationships we have with others but more our relationship with our own self.

Have a personal sanctuary and visit it deliberately, regularly. This sanctuary could be a physical space or a non-physical space or even both. Use it to build and nurture your relationship with yourself. Create practices that can support you in this.

Guard and cherish it with the fierceness of a lioness protecting her cubs. Be jealous of this sacred space of yours. Having a healthy and enriching relationship with oneself is the building block of our self power.
