This is a time for extreme self-love and self-care, and I like all of us, need some extra special love right now. I’m trying to be strong for my kids so they don’t worry about me, but the truth is that I’m a bundle of emotions. I have moments where I’m totally stressed out, on edge, anxious and then I have moments where I’m feeling calm and joyful and I know everything will be all right.
I think that practicing self-love & self-care right now is more important than ever. Loving ourselves and caring for ourself has to be an essential part of our daily routine. It’s not a luxury, it’s an essential part in keeping ourselves healthy, strong, and maintaining a healthy immune system.
One of my self-love practices is, I write myself a ‘love note’ and I like to place it on the end table in my hanging out room so I can see it throughout the day. Every time my eyes land on – hello self I love you – it makes me smile, uplifts me and fills me with joy. I wrote this a couple of months ago, and I’m still looking at it every day, and it’s still nourishing me.
If you need some extra special love right now, try this – write yourself a love note – place it someplace where you’ll see it throughout the day, it can be anything that makes you feel good. Your own words, a phrase from a book, lyrics from a song…anything that will elevate your spirit, make you smile, feel good, feel happy and fill you with joy.
Buddha said “You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
And now more than ever we all need to do whatever we can to empower ourselves and give ourselves self-love & self-care to get us through this time. And let’s remember that this will pass and – Everything will be alright.
