Someone told me this awhile ago and it always stuck with me… “Pay yourself a tithe”. When I first began personal trainer (getting paid for it, that is), a friend on mine that I really looked up to said, “Girl, give yourself 20% of everything you make.” My first thought was “It’s all mine anyhow.” But then it sunk in. Once it did, I found myself with $200 and $300 dollars in a jar not realizing it was accumulating so much. I must honestly say, I’ve strayed away from this wonderful concept… BUT I’m getting back to it. :0)
So what does this have to do with it being a cold and wet Wednesday? Glad you asked. Two things: 1. I feel it very important to HONOR ourselves. It seems to me that we are not praising ourselves, yes I said Praising… ourselves enough. Do we really realize who we are? I think not. We are literally walking miracles (think about that)… there will never be and has never been another YOU. 2. This “tithe money” is only for you! Not the kids, the bills, the whatever (yes even in this recession). This money is for an hour massage, a mani-pedi, a session with your therapist, an acupuncture session… the things that we all need to keep us aligned with our purpose.
This tithe is to help the temple of God function at its highest level. Doesn’t that sound familiar?
Start today, even if it’s just $1. Set aside for your praise and worship. I know I’m stretching the perimeters of our minds… but just go with me here.
MUAH! It's HUMP DAY … let’s push through! :0)
