W.I.N. Wednesday: Lessons From Life's Most Powerful Question - Is this holding you back?
As I read this quote from Maryanne Williamson it struck me that for many of us "the love we're not extending in the present" is self love. In order to truly love others and accept the love of others you have to love yourself.
Listen to the way you talk. Listen to the way your friends family and co-workers talk. How many of us talk about the love we have for others, but we loath, not love, ourselves?
Sit by yourself and say the following statements out loud:
- I love myself.
- I like myself.
- I feel good about who I am.
- I am proud of who I am.
- I am proud of all that I have accomplished and achieved.
How does that feel?
If it feels real then make it a daily practice.
If it does not feel real then find a way to forgive yourself and set yourself free until it does feel real. You owe it to yourself and to those people in your life who love you. You can never truly embrace their love until you learn to love yourself.
What's Important Now? Love yourself, like yourself and continue the journey to always be a little better tomorrow than you are today.
