I have been getting lots of feedback on my first week of the 100 Day Self Love Affair. Some very supporting and some from people who don't agree that self-love should come first. One of my friends said that my videos made her think that I don't ever want to have a partner or a family and that I am ok by myself.
Well, I am definitely OK by myself. I enjoy my own company and now I am acting more and more on my own behalf. And I do want a partner and a family. But self-love will only make me a better friend and a better partner. When we feel whole, complete and perfect as we are, then we can see others in the same way and treat them as such. Doesn't that sound like a great relationship? When you can love someone fully and unconditionally without needing anything in return? I believe loving yourself will make you a better person for others to be with- you can actually love others more when you love yourself!
Just like the saying goes - love your neighbor as you love yourself and that already implies that you need to love yourself first. Imagine if you hate yourself and stuff your body with foods that make you feel sick and then you do the same to your neighbor? Imagine force-feeding your neighbor with foods that are not good for them. Calling them names. And you know that we all have negative self-talk and can say things to ourselves that we would never say to others. We all are guilty of being mean to ourselves. Now, is that a good way to love others?
It is time to stand up to yourself. I think it is time to be nice to your body and spirit. When you act on your own behalf, when you are kind to your body and soul, when you shower yourself with sweet words, you will truly blossom. And when you blossom, you radiate love and kindness and others will only benefit from that.
Take a look at my video and let me know your feedback.
I am sending you lots of love and hope you take time to shower yourself with kindness.
One of the biggest challenges my clients face when they start working with me is discovering that deep inside them there is a voice that sabotages their successes. Somewhere deep inside there is a voice that keeps telling them that they are not good enough… Continue reading here.
One of my favorite Disney movies is Beauty and the Beast. Little girls from an early age are taught to look through the looks and love people for who they are. I think we all consciously try to do that. Except for one person. In my line of work I often see women who can't fall in love with themselves. Continue reading here.
