Following yesterdays post about the New Year and me taking on the first 12 days to ensure I have a year full of love, prosperity, and joy! Today’s theme is Love. Now when I say love, I’m not talking about loving another person, family, or friends, although all of that is important, I’m talking about self love. This is something that has been really important to me. Working on self love. I think everyone could use a lil loving…of themselves that is.
Love is a funny thing because everyone has a different definition of what love is. This is why it’s so important to start understanding how you interpret love. Do you define it through gifts, affirmations, gestures, affection etc? All of those are valid and true to whichever works for you. I’m bit on self talk and being more compassionate with myself. I noticed, I treat everyone else with such patience and understanding, but I don’t do the same with myself. Why?
To treat this, I took time today to meditate, do some yoga, and started a conversation with myself. I suggest we all start carving out 20 minutes of our day to just be with ourselves. Start asking yourself How can I be more loving today? Then see what comes to you. It could be as simple as allowing yourself to take a nap. Or reaching out to your cousin and just letting them know you love them. Or simply holding the door for someone. Who knows? Your inner being does. Why not spend some time with yourself and treating yourself to some good loving. Bath time anyone?
