Love. Self-Love. It is the most important kind of love there is because without it, any other thing in life that requires love, isn’t going to get love. At least the whole hearted, patient, unconditional kind. It all starts from within. And although I am sure we all have self love, for the most part, it’s the fact that we often put “us” on the chopping block first when it comes to prioritizing life. Stop that! You are worthy! You are #1!
I had a very wise therapist tell me this. He said, what do you like to do? What makes you happy? What gives you joy? The first thing that popped into my head was reading. I love to read and at this point it had been too long. And it bothered me. You know what he said, “Read damn it! Why would you deny yourself the simplest pleasures in life?” So I read. I stopped saying, “I don’t have time.” That’s bologna. We make time for what we want. Make today the day you choose YOU first. You are going to feel AMAZING when you do.
