Unconditionally loving yourself is the key to true happiness and unlimited possibilities.
This does not mean merely liking yourself. It’s not about how you look in an outfit, feeling good about a win or new haircut. It’s about how you feel about yourself when you make a mistake, when you first wake in the morning, or when you fail at something.
We care for people in our lives, we dedicate time and energy to our businesses, we cherish our families and but often put ourselves last. We don’t speak our mind, we don’t take time for our favorite things, we make excuses and prioritize the needs of others. This can feel overwhelming or suffocating.
To make changes, we must remember that the relationship we have with ourselves determines the quality of all other relationships. When we are at peace and embrace the imperfect version of ourselves, that is true love. It is in this state that we can give and receive love. It is how we can be fully satisfied, able to grow and prosper.
Today, do something loving for yourself. A delicious meal, a massage, reading a book, a quiet evening alone. Whatever you choose, remember that it’s by loving yourself that you define the quality of your life.
