Love yourSelf <3 We have within us an infinite eternal joyful loving Self (note capital "S") which is kind, compassionate, giving, trusting and absolutely full of love, and at the same time we have a self that can bring us down, that doubts, that mistrusts, judges and feels a sense of lack... And you can choose from which Self you can operate from and live your life =)
Our responsibility every day, is to allow out true Self to come to surface, and this starts by being kind and loving (first to ourselves), whether is through the words we speak to talk about ourselves, choosing foods that nourish us, choosing friends that have a positive influence on us, and doing anything that makes you feel good (with no bad after effect)...
When you love yourself, you won’t be judging yourself for being the way you are, wishing you were different in any way but you will accept yourself just as you are, because anything else is not worth it, and you are worth your love!!! Love can never be outside of you, it really is within you, if you cannot feel it in this moment, try to cultivate it by saying a positive thing about yourself and/or your life every single day, if this is hard for you to do, and the first thing that comes to your mind is something that is not good, try to change the same negative thought into a positive statement, for example I am not ________ (fill in the blank) into I am _______, even if you have to fake it till you make it, reprogram your brain to see the good in yourself, in others, in life =) Trust me, negative thought patterns can be changed/replaced, and when you do, you suddenly start to see the beauty in you and around you, you start to attract more things to be grateful for :-)
The more you train your brain to see the good in you, in all things and people, the brighter your life will become, the more you notice the simple things that make life great <3 I know because I’ve experienced it in myself, and it is possible even if there are days where you feel that you have to dig deep to find the good, but you will find it, it is always there <3
Love yourself and then love others <3 Direct your thoughts and hence your reality to be one of love, kindness, gratitude, compassion and joy, remember that whatever you think, you attract so if your thoughts are those of fear , worry, anxiety and negativity, then you’re wiring more of those thoughts to flourish... Sometimes to act from your highest Self, you have to conquer the mind and its identification with your little self, and as the quote say, it is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves =)
Take control of the life you are living, accept what life has given you and embrace it as it you had chosen it, be grateful for what you are, for people around you, for the opportunities you have and have had in your life, for being alive, and every single day remember to love yourSelf =)
I honour the place in you in which the whole Universe dwells, that place in you which is of love, of trust, peace and kindness, because when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are One <3
