To Salute Oneself

Today in yoga we looked at how do you salute yourself in the quiet of your own mind?

First off I wanted to really understand what salute means. By definition "a gesture of respect, homage, or acknowledgement". How often do we salute ourselves? Ever? And in the quiet of our own mind?

So in contemplating this I came to recognize how often I put myself down in my own mind (which is A LOT) so I take this statement from yoga as a reminder to at least in my mind catch myself when I have negative self talk going on and make a gesture of respect and acknowledgement about something about me that is awesome - recognize myself! Recognize what I accomplish. Recognize my cool traits. Recognize me for just being me.
