Have You Ever Fallen in Love?
If so, then you're well aware of those high flying feelings of a new relationship, and all the excitement that comes along with it. You can't stop thinking about them, you love spending time with them, and you basically can't find a fault within them.
Could you imagine what life might be like if you loved yourself in this way?
If you were totally excited to spend some QT with yourself: maybe rent your favorite movie, have a bubble bath and order in your favorite dinner. If you treated yourself like the love of your life, and were your own biggest cheerleader.
How might your life change?
Sure, every relationship has it's ups and downs, and your relationship with yourself will be no exception. But I'm asking you to think about how much love you truly show yourself each day? In what ways to you invest in yourself and connect to yourself?
At the end of the day people will let you down, but you can choose to not let yourself down. People around you can hurt you, but you won't hurt yourself. People can leave you heart broken, but you will never abandon yourself.
The possibilities in life are endless when you truly love and support yourself unconditionally. No one can hurt you, because you've always got your own back. You're in your own corner saying "you can do this kid, I believe in you!"
Does this sound like something you might be interested in?
The first step in cultivating a loving relationship with yourself is recognizing you want one. Second, you'll need to analyze how you DO feel about yourself, before you can create any kind of change.
Where would you rate yourself on a scale of 1-10 with how much you love yourself unconditionally?
No matter where you are on that scale, everyone can always use a little more self-love. Here are five practises for starting a more loving relationship with yourself today:
We can create massive changes to the quality of our lives, but that massive change comes from a lot of little "right actions". So be patient and kind with yourself, and if you slip up and your self talk gets a little negative, remember you can always choose again.
Each moment is an opportunity to start over. So if you choose something not in alignment with empowering self-love, simply choose again. You have that freedom to choose better.
Sending you love & light on your self-love journey,
