Reminder to you, Love yourself instead of loving the idea of other people loving you.
It starts within. When you think about it, loving ourself should be the easiest thing for us as humans to do. I mean, we’re with ourself 24/7. We know our ins and outs, what makes us tick and what brings us joy…
So why is it that self love seems to come last now? Why is it so easy for us to pick apart every little bit of ourselves day in and day out?
Is it because other people do it so easily that we feel we need to jump on that bandwagon? Is it from the constant comparison we do everyday because of social media? Where did the love go? We were born into this one body, this one mind, this one life. It was not meant for us to bash and malnourish.
When you think of our bodies and mind as a seed that grows into a flower, what are the necessities to grow the flower and to keep it big and beautiful? Water, food, sunshine and warmth. We must nurture the flower and be gentle with it through the seasons to keep it blooming. As do our bodies.
The more we put ourselves down, the more opportunity we give for other people to do it as well. This then leads us into the true belief that we aren’t worthy, that we aren’t beautiful, that all the critics are right.
But honey, THEY’RE WRONG!
You love yourself. You give your self the warmth and nourishment you need. Because once you start to shine and blossom again, you’ll be amazed at what else follows. Love yourself. Be your true self. Life is much more fun when you’re happy and confident.
I challenge you:
You are not flawed, you’re fabulous!
