Love and happiness begins and ends with YOU.
You, as much as anyone else, deserves your love and affection…if not more. Without self-love, it becomes difficult to receive love from others, and we start searching for it in all the wrong places. We put ourselves in stressful relationships and situations which keep pushing genuine love and happiness further from our lives. But when we show ourselves love and affection, we find ourselves overflowing with love, and we can’t help but share it unconditionally. And this in turn attracts more of this genuine love into our lives. Loving ourselves reinforces our worth and makes sure that our needs are met, making self-love a vital practice for happiness.
It’s time to nourish the most important relationship in your life: the one with yourself. Raise your self-awareness and be present for YOU today (and beyond!). What do you love about yourself? How can you treat yourself with love and kindness for being the amazing being of divine love that you are?
- Do something you really enjoy.
- Clean out your closet of things that don’t make you feel good.
- Splurge on that item.
- Take a long bath.
- Get a manicure.
- Whatever your heart desires.
Just relax, feel good, and be grateful about being you.
Be sure to:
See love when you see your reflection. Speak love and tell yourself ‘I love you.’ Hear love in your thoughts about yourself.
Be gentle, be patient and be kind with yourself. #breatheandbelove.
Taking this time to direct love towards ourselves daily not only allows us to reconnect with ourselves and recharges us, but it also improves our relationships. It is not selfish; it’s probably one of the most unselfish things we can do.
You will be with you longer than anyone else in this journey through life…you might as well cultivate your relationship with yourself and make it a tale of endless love.
