The Importance of Self-Love + A Giveaway0
Self-love is the love of oneself.
As noted in Wikipedia: “In 1956 psychologist and social philosopher Erich Fromm proposed that loving oneself is different from being arrogant, conceited or egocentric. He proposed that loving oneself means caring about oneself, taking responsibility for oneself, respecting oneself, and knowing oneself (e.g., being realistic and honest about one’s strengths and weaknesses). He proposed, further, that in order to be able to truly love another person, a person needs first to love oneself in this way.”
I believe that self-love is at the core of every choice and action we make.
How much self-love we have is demonstrated in our choices and actions. If 10 were the maximum on the self-love scale, mine used to be around the 3 mark. Life was a struggle and so was looking in the mirror. I hated what I saw. I loathed it! Every single day was a battle. Now, I am overflowing with self-love. I come first! I make sure my-self-love is overflowing so that I can give to others. I have my dream job: Helping people fall back in love with themselves. I couldn’t be happier. If I am not overflowing with self-love, how am I meant to give to anyone else?
Like factoring in an hour every morning to move my body in a loving way, I also factor in self-love ‘me time’ every single day.
Here is what I do to make sure my self-love is going off the self-love scale.
- I meditate, journal, do angle cards, and write in my gratitude journal as soon as I wake up.
- I fuel my body with only loving, organic, nourishing food and clean water.
- I quit eating sugar.
- I dry body brush.
- I take an afternoon nature walk.
- I move my body in a loving way.
- I sip on cups of organic herbal tea.
- I turn off my computer at 6 p.m.
- I get into bed at 9:30 p.m. to read and meditate.
- I stop in the middle of the day to ponder, reconnect, and check in with myself.
I love giving you the chance to up the ante on self-love. So, I am giving away one pack of Self-love cards + a bottle of self-love alchemical oil from Sacred Self.
