This is an invitation to self love.
You are invited to love yourself so deeply, take such good care of yourself, that others can see how deeply you deserve to be loved.
Especially to love the not so likable parts, even at times when you don’t feel loved so much by others.
Self love is not about being selfish, but exactly the opposite. It’s about taking good care of ourselves so that we can offer the best us to the world.
As cliché as the saying “you have to love yourself first before you can deeply love others” sounds, it makes sense that the more things we accept and learn to love in ourselves – the better we feel in our skins, perfect or not – the more things we’ll accept and learn to love in others.
Learning to love ourselves deeply is powerful medicine for the world.
Life is too short and too miraculous to spend it hating – ourselves or others.
The same way we are capable of learning to take care of different species of plants in our gardens or inside our homes, and helping them thrive and bloom beautifully, that same way we can study and learn to care for different parts of ourselves adequately – body, mind, energy, and spirit.
It is when we realize through self-study the miracle of our existence, and understand the responsibility we each have to take good care of ourselves – when we are full of ourselves, overflowing with self-nourishment, inner peace, inner love – that we, in turn, are able to compassionately and healthfully care, collaborate with, and love our sisters, brothers, and other nature with whom we share our bountiful planet.
It takes courage and commitment. But we should make practices of self care and self love a part of our everyday ritual. Those daily commitments to ourselves are the very best way of indirectly manifesting our joy and inviting peace and flow into our lives.
Nourishing the body with healthy foods, spending time in nature, meditating, getting a massage or a facial, taking baths, practicing yoga…
Create rituals that include whatever nurturing looks like to you.
Are you ready to make the decision to love yourself unconditionally?

Even if it is to one thing every day?
