Self Love

Self Love is mistaken for all kinds of other things, but I’m talking about really loving yourself. Try this little exercise:

Think about the first time you held your baby sister, or the moment you looked your partner and realized they were it. Close your eyes, fill yourself with that emotion, and notice the love radiating out from you, towards that other person. Notice that this sensation is infinite; you will never run out.

Now, turn this energy around. Point that love back at your own heart. Let love pour over all of you, especially the parts of yourself you want to “improve,” or “fix.” Just like you would say to newborn, say to yourself “I love you exactly the way you are, and you don’t have to change a thing.”

If you found this exercise difficult, or totally ridiculous, let’s talk about it. Reach out here.
