HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!
Love is everything. To be loved, treasured, and adored is something we all want. I think it is possible that our TRUE identity IS love.
How we feel about our self and what we tell ourselves is so important. Our Self Image literally dictates the quality of LOVE we are able to receive and transmit. The quality of our experiences with LOVE in this life is determined by the level of LOVE we are able to consistently practice WITHIN.
We all have that inner voice. I think it is important that we remember to choose what to allow that inner voice tell us, and make good choices about what we will permit it to say! It’s great to be loved by others, but unless we learn to love and accept ourselves for who and what we are, our perception will be that nobody else ever will. WE dictate the way we deserve to be loved, all in accordance to the level of skill and ability we achieve in fully loving, respecting, accepting, and appreciating OURSELVES.
In order for others to love us, we must first learn to love OURSELVES. In order for us to love and accept others more deeply, we must first learn to love and accept OURSELVES more deeply.
Today’s challenge for myself: Today I will focus on choosing what to tell myself, and I will constantly design how I feel about myself. I will PROVE how I feel about myself BY WHAT I CHOOSE TO DO, each and every moment. I will love myself for who and what I am and continually strive to be a better version of myself than I was yesterday. I will only choose to DO that which will fill ME up with LOVE, which constantly spills over into the lives of those around me.
These words by Ram Dass empowered me to love, respect, appreciate, and accept myself, more and more, each and every day.
The first interview Lewis Howes gave featuring Marisa Peer has helped me to love and accept myself as I am. I hope it does the same for you.
