Its good to give love. There's just no question about it. But how many people really think about giving love to themselves? Its always easier to give love away than receiving it on your own. Its definitely not a conscious thing, because who doesn't want to love themselves?
Love is a great thing and its always positive to give it out as much as possible. BUT the most important person who needs and deserves your love, is yourself.
Without loving yourself, your unable to really love anyone else to the fullest and you deprive yourself of a lot of personal power.
It can be difficult to love ourselves. But it doesn't have to be a daunting task. It can be as simple as choosing to be healthier, which I'm currently doing right now. I'm starting to eat healthier. Why? Because I want to feel beautiful on the inside and the outside. Somedays its hard to do these healthy things like eating vegetables. But I remind myself: Okay, I eat vegetables because I love myself. And its a simple but powerful statement when you remind yourself to do these things for you, for the love of you! No matter how ridiculous it sounds, it really does help. :)
And I realized once I started eating healthier, I started eating my vitamins, really realizing what I was putting into my body, drank more water, sleeping early, giving up alcohol, the list really goes on. When you focus on giving to yourself, all things will become positively aligned in your life. All the pieces slowly come full circle.
Start with little things and work your way up. It takes time to really realize what you love about yourself, and realize what you do deserve in your life.
Love can allow you to take control of your life and be your genuine self. Choose to Love yourself because you deserve it!
