Happy Valentine’s Day from the girl who didn’t love herself for years. Who didn’t know her own worth or didn’t want to believe it. Who looked for validation from other’s and couldn’t find it within. Who spent countless hours, days and years trying to please other people, yet failed to realize that the only one she needed to please was herself.
Who never thought that she would find love and how could she when she had a difficult time being in love with who she was. Who finally woke up one day and decided she had enough. Who decided to see her own beauty, and it wasn’t the external kind. Who began to love herself so deeply that she began to create the life she always wanted. Who found the love of her life (herself) then was able to find the light of her soul. Who now knows how to love immensely and with that love how to forgive.
So on this day of love, don’t forget to love yourself first and foremost. Fill your own cup before filling others, if you come from an abundant place, you’ll be able to better serve others. Be gentle with yourself always, yet strive for excellence. Take what others think with a grain of salt if they don’t except you for who you are they have no room in your life.
Stop second guessing yourself, your intuition will guide you through life choices. Learn how to be alone and take your own advice. Spend time knowing and loving yourself the way you’ve always wanted and deserve.
The love you receive is the love you give you, the people we attract are the direct reflection of what we either think we lack or believe of ourselves. Are you giving yourself the love you are seeking from others?
