The perfect gift
Do you find it hard to put yourself first?
Do you find yourself saying yes when you really want to say No?
Are you forever giving but neglecting your self-care?
The next time you decide to give yourself a gift, choose self-love. The strongest and most powerful gift you can ever give to yourself. It will increasingly grow and strengthen you, so you can continue to give and receive love endlessly.
Do not confuse self-love with vanity or selfishness. Self-love comes from deep within us. It’s not only about bubble baths and just pampering ourselves. It’s about accepting, nurturing, respecting and showing love and compassion to ourselves, as we show to our children or our loved ones. Understanding and forgiving ourselves as we do with those we cherish and love.
Self-love is a practise, a dedication to bettering ones’ self in this life’s voyage. Empowering one’s self to be happy from the inside. Remember, before you can receive love and respect from others, you need to love and respect yourself first.
Imagine that every time you have hurt yourself by saying yes when you really wanted to say no, disregarded your needs, feared to express what you truly felt and thought, you created a scar on your skin. How scared would your skin look now?
And now imagine that every time, you respected your needs, spoke your truth, set your boundaries, and nourished your body, your mind and soul with positive thoughts, a scar would vanish and that part would glow, and the warmth of that glow would shower you and all those around you with love. How much more could you give now? How many unbroken connections would be formed in your relationships and how much limitless creativity could flow through you?
Make a choice today to give yourself the most powerful gift of self-love. You read this post because something inside is searching for ways to take care of yourself, your soul, your psyche. So, take the first step today and create a belief that says: it’s ok to look after my needs first.
And remember to keep sharing your beautiful smile!
