“Our first order of business
is the development of self-love”
and I couldn’t agree more!
It all begins with the individual. With me...and with you.
Maybe you’ve heard something like
“You have to love yourself before you can truly love anyone else.”
Many of us set out on this journey looking for love in all the wrong places.
We cannot attract what we are not. In other words, we must create the necessary changes in ourselves in order to attract that which we are seeking. Personal experience has proved this to be so.
We are all looking for another version of ourselves in our partner - maybe this confirms that what we really want is self-love. We want *them* to enjoy the same types of conversations, like the same music & movies, enjoy the same type of social events, food, sexual activities, values, goals...the list goes on. But only you like that particular combination of things - that's what makes you "special."
Everyone else is different. And even if *they* totally subscribed to
your "list of likes," their history is different,
which created different ideas, behaviors, values and choices.
It's time to accept ourselves and appreciate our differences.
The trick is learning to love every... little... part...of ourselves
(thoughts, body parts, etc).
Eventually, we come to KNOW the Power of Love comes from within.
It's not that we don't trust anyone, or don't ask for help and support from others,
it's that we no longer rely on anything outside of ourselves
to give us what we desire.
*I'll provide you with a few tips in future posts :)
If I want others to like me, I have to like myself first.
If I want a healthy, loving, supportive, respectful relationship,
I've got to give those things to ME before I can attract my *dream* companion.
Give up your instinct to conform
I can tell you, I've found it much easier to be of service to others (including family members)
when I take care of myself and put myself #1 on the list.
Self-love leads to self-esteem, so celebrate Validation Day...
I mean Valentine's Day...
most importantly, celebrate YOURSELF and watch the sparks fly!
Put on some of your favorite music (I've given you a couple songs to start with) - something that inspires you to become the person you want to be, light some candles, send yourself a bouquet of your favorite flowers, and take that bath you've been thinking about for so long.
Give yourself the validation and love you deserve.
