All for the Love of You

 

“The most powerful relationship you will ever have is the relationship with yourself.” Steve Maraboli
Dear Friends, Colleagues and Supporters,

    The biggest struggle in life is the struggle to know, embrace, and accept ourselves, with all of our faults. We are so quick to criticize ourselves for the slightest imperfection. What do you say when you look in the mirror in the morning? I had a friend who would look in the mirror and say “Hi Gorgeous!”  Have you done that lately?  Probably not!
Acceptance is key.  But then, how do we learn to accept ourselves when we can’t stop beating ourselves up about simple things, stupid things, things that will not change the course of our lives.

          “Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works
                miracles in our lives.”- Louise L. Hay
   How do we learn to love ourselves, here are some simple steps.
1. Know yourself – start a journal, join a group, explore
2. Be true to you – stand your ground
3. Respect yourself – others will too
4. Value you – you are the most important person in your life
5. Expand yourself – step out of your comfort zone.
When you begin doing the above five things, you will learn acceptance and love.  And because we are energy which is driven by our thoughts, our self-love and acceptance will change everything.  Our energy will shift, our attitude will change and people will notice.
It’s all good.  I hope that you take some time to reflect.
Tell me your best self-love story.
Declare today national love your day!
