What is the definition of self-love? What is your own?
Self-love is not just about feeling good or taking time for yourself. It’s a state of appreciation for oneself that grows from actions that support your physical, psychological, and spiritual growth. Self-love allows you to accept your weaknesses along with your strengths, and to have compassion for yourself as you strive to find personal meaning and fulfillment.
Think about your day to day life. Do you ever find yourself taking a moment to think about yourself beyond the to do list? Carrying stress like a stack of bricks on your shoulders? If you were dating yourself, how strong would you say your relationship is? Silly question - but seriously. Think about it!
Somewhere in the course of our life, we somehow adopted the idea that it's more important to neglect our own needs rather than put ourself first. Everyone has a different reason.
No matter how many times we set our needs aside - until we fill up our own cup of self love magic, we will never be able to share and spread the love into all parts of our life.
We need to fill up those dry cups to the point that they're overflowing with so much goodness that we have no choice but to find another cup to fill. Let the self love flow like champagne. or coffee. or tea. Whatever is your thing.
Want to hear something crazy that will blow your socks off?
YOU ARE YOUR FIRST PRIORITY.
So over the next week, we dive into all things that create a balance with our mind, body, and soul, and come back to a place of compassion.
When you think of self-love, you may think "I don't have time for that" or "I can't afford a fancy spa experience."
Don't let this stop you, it's so much more than pampering. It's about getting to know our fine selves. It could be a 5 star spa in your bathroom, or a moment of silence in your car, rapping to your favorite song, taking a yoga class, talking kindly to yourself, or dancing in your underwear for like you're Beyonce's back up dancer. No shame.
Truth is one of the most beautiful things we can do in our life. Time to know our true selves.
Together, we're building a self love map to fall in love with ourselves again.
So today's love challenge question is:
If you could do one thing today that you have been putting off, what would it be?
Then do it!
Seriously! Do it!
Only you can make it happen.
Write it down below and put it out into the universe. It's time to do your thang!!!
All the love to you on this Monday.
