Self Love. This is a subject close to my heart. It took me a few years (maybe 20 :-)) to understand it and not to have a negative connotation with it. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH LOVING YOURSELF! There is a difference between WHAT we think of ourselves and HOW MUCH we think about ourselves. The younger me, wanted other people to love, like & accept me before I could love, like & accept myself. I was always looking for approval, I wanted everyone to like me. The result: I was never true to myself and I was never happy with myself. This is the biggest lie most of us are living. Why should the way you feel depend on the thoughts in someone else’s head? A person’s opinion is not the truth. It is their truth.I was listening to a webinar of Robin Banks one evening, where he was telling the story of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Against all odds he is world famous today, not because people believed in him, but because he believed in himself and he believed in his dream. He is definitely not the best actor, but that doesn’t matter, there is no-one like him!The point that I want to make is: only you can do you, there is no one like you. It might sound like a cliche to you, but when you start living your truth, everything will fall into place. “We tend to think that there is nothing unique about ourselves, that “it’s all been done before”. We believe we don’t have anything original, valuable, or worthwhile to contribute. But, no matter how many times you think an idea or creation has been shared, sometimes it takes one person (you) expressing it in your unique voice, at the right time, in the right place, for the idea to actually make a difference.” -Marie Forleo. I believe the first step you have to take to find your purpose is to love and accept yourself unconditionally. You already have everything you need inside of yourself. God made you. Read that again, God made you according to His image! I am passionate about women, because I know the struggles we go through. All the negative self talk and self hate. Let me teach you everything you need to know to look your best everyday. I will be there guiding you, but only you can make the decision to love yourself deeply.
“There is a vitality, a life-force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium, and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.” –Martha Graham
