Discover the power of loving yourself
This weekend I had the opportunity to have a lot of productive conversations. From the weekend I was able to realize that one of the most empowering phrases I know is “It’s not about me”. Each and every one of us has our on personal struggles that we are dealing with on a daily basis.
Sometimes on this journey we call life it is full of sudden twists, turns, and storms. When something unexpected or painful happens, when we become blocked or frustrated, when life takes a different course than we hoped it would, it’s easy to stop trusting the flow of our lives. I didn’t ask for this. It’s not fair. I don’t want this, we think. This road isn’t leading us anywhere, at least anywhere I would like to be headed at this point in my life.
Often, when we feel life has turned on us, we respond by turning on ourselves. But turning on ourselves doesn’t help. In fact, it can compound the situation. It can prevent us from hearing and acting on the very guidance that will lead us through, get us through, and take us to the next place. It can prevent us from hearing out heart.
Keep loving yourself, and taking care of yourself, no matter what—–through the storms, the twists, the turns, and the blocks. Take a moment, breathe deep, and restore yourself to that sacred place of self-love and self-responsibility. Feel all your feelings. Then let them go.
Love yourself until you can hear your hear and what it tells you to do. Love yourself until you find the courage to act on that guidance. Loving yourself is a powerful tool, a powerful force for change. It can reconnect you to creativity, to universal love, to the best possible flow of events within your life. There is a trustworthy road through whatever life brings. Loving yourself will help you find it.
