Wouldn’t it be easier to break through all the obstacles life puts before you if you faced these barriers from the place of first loving YOURSELF? Wow. Wouldn’t that be a perk when grappling with life’s grit? When up against tough moments, my best results happen if I approach these moments first from a place of liking who and where I am. If I can feel good enough at the starting block, the energy I put into my next actions flow more ease fully. I move faster and farther when feeling positive about myself than if I begin an endeavor being down on myself. Can you love, cherish and honor yourself just because? Can you savor your essence as you just let yourself be. Self-appreciation is essential, especially when you are determined to keep BOLDLY breaking through life’s tougher times and seasons. If you cannot recognize the beauty in yourself, for instance, how can you really see it in others? Or how about the idea that to attract that special person into your life…you have to first BE that special someone. Oh my. Today, reflect a moment on whatever roadblocks are in the way of your honoring and loving yourself. And then commit to clear those blocks. Bust ’em down. And get back to the grand business of weaving the threads of your sweet soul into a beautiful tapestry….that you then fall madly in love with.
