Being, Showing and Growing Love
Relying on others for validation of our worth will only lead us down a path of deep disappointment. Therefore, it is imperative that we find our worthiness from within. We do this by practicing self-love.
In each of these three practices of self-love, one underlying theme is love. Love allows us to feel confident and empowered. Love allows us to feel deep appreciation of ourself. Love allows us to see all that is good in our life, which allows us to see our own goodness.
Expressing words of love, kindness, encouragement and appreciation to ourself on a daily basis remind us of our innate goodness, of who we really are deep within ourself. These ‘love notes’ offer us the awareness and alertness of our internal dialogue and thus, an opening into how and what we think of ourself.
How and what we think of ourself must be the truth. So if we find that our internal dialogue isn’t so friendly towards ourself, especially when we make mistakes, we have a huge opportunity to change it for the better.
Asking ourself, ‘what do I need in this moment’ not only shows ourself compassion, but it also gives us the the self-assurance that we know what is best for us.
Doing one thing a day that we enjoy grows autonomy.
Doing things outside our comfort zone builds confidence. Using our internal dialogue to grow, to nurture and to encourage ourself, we are shown new things about ourselves that we may not have known otherwise. Always looking at each day as an opportunity to grow, our life will never get stagnant.
Being Love, we are able to Show Love and Grow Love. Thus, the wonderful benefit to gravitate others towards us blossoms into even more Love.
