L-O-V-E: Who You Are …
This week’s topic is love!
And before you get all mushy and start conjuring up images of Romeo and Juliet or trying to remember when Harry actually met Sally, I want you to stop and go find a mirror.
Now I want to invite you to look into the eyes of the person in the mirror and ask yourself this question:
Do I genuinely love myself … exactly the way that I am (yes this includes all of the spots, wrinkles, blemishes, lines, etc)?
We’ve all heard the saying, you can’t give away something you don’t have.
If that’s true, then you can’t fully love someone else … until you love yourself.
I believe many of us consciously or unconsciously deep down inside struggle with the question … Am I ENOUGH?
And that question causes us to devalue our worth and the love of ourselves.
Here’s how it could be impacting you in the love department.
When you don’t believe you’re enough, you don’t believe you’re lovable. And if you don’t believe you’re lovable … when someone tells you that they “love you” … you don’t believe them!
And it doesn’t matter how many times they say it .. you still don’t believe them! Being loved begins when you believe you are enough and that you deserve love.
So what would your life be like if you knew you were enough? How would your relationships be different if you knew you were loved … just the way you are?
As singer song writer James Taylor once said, “You have to choose whether to love yourself or not.”
Choose wisely and often …
