What if You Loved YourSelf

What would happen if you started to love yourself, I mean –

r e a l l y   l o v e   y o u r   s e l f  in a way you never have before –

What would happen if you started to believe even for a moment that you are deserving, worthy, magnificent, spectacular and perfect just the way you are. That you are enough, creative, loving, good, the perfect size, have the perfect shape and you don’t need to do anything more to come to that special place of loving yourself.

buddah quote 1

That to love yourself you don’t have to apologize, feel guilty, need permission; give up your own needs to fill someone else’s.

Much too often we put ourselves last on the list, our children come first, the spouse comes first, the job comes first, the friend, family, parents, other obligations, all come first. We worry about being egotistic, conceited, not caring or good enough.  We worry about meeting someone else’s expectations of us and looking good in someone else’s eyes, and… In the end we feel depleted, out of breath, run down, depressed, resentful…

What would happen if you poured real love unto yourself and if you let that love shine in your whole body?  What if your love for yourself would be so great that you couldn’t contain it and you would have to let it pour out of yourself to others?

Imagine what it could be like if you were totally and completely in love with yourself.

If you dared to declare I  L O O O O O O O V E  M E E E E E E E E.

Imagine if you could love everyone else and still love yourself more.

What would happen?

What would your life look like – if you became your own best, best friend.  Had compassion for yourself. What if you decided that you matter, that you’re important, that you are precious?  Embraced yourself, hugged yourself and remembered that you are sacred and honored yourself.

Where on the to do list would you place yourself?

You are magnificent and divine and deserving of your own self love.

What would it be like if – you honored you, if you were your own possession unto yourself.  If you released yourself and let yourself off the hook, put yourself first, loved yourself unconditionally, forgave yourself, only held on to thoughts that uplift you and let go of all the thoughts that don’t.

If you just plain loved yourself – what would happen???

Blessings

  1. A powerful post, and you’re so right – all too often many of us put the needs of others first, the need to constantly ‘do’ rather than rest and look after ourselves, push forward and ignore what we want or need because of feeling guilty, or compare ourselves to others and feel bad (or worse) about ourselves. If we declared love for ourselves, I think we could open up our worlds so much, open up our lives to new experiences, a new level of appreciation and health and happiness. Easier said than done, but a worthy challenge to take on! Great post, Masha =]

    1. Caz, I’m so grateful for your comment, I was hesitant to post this, but I had to follow my inner guidance. I’ve been there on the side of not loving myself, of not knowing who I am. Getting to here has been a journey that I would not change for anything. Thank you. ❤

    1. Myrtle, I started saying – I love me – I didn’t mean it, but I just said it in private, in my head. Start with something that will not make you feel too uncomfortable, I love my nails. Say it to yourself no one needs to know, say it every day, you will start to feel a change. Blessings. ❤
