Life, your life, is exactly what you make of it…
“Be your own greatest passion and write your own love story.”
In a society that makes you feel inadequate for so very many reasons, it can feel like it’s almost impossible to fully appreciate yourself exactly as you are. Then you add the notion that you must, absolutely must, have someone else to love you and approve of you just to be deemed “okay” in that same society and the pressure just mounts.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I think that love and acceptance should start with you. I’ve mentioned it before, but self-love, self-respect and self-worth all start with self for a reason!
It’s truly an absolute freedom to set yourself free from societal expectations and demands and to actively choose to be your own greatest passion first and to set out to write your own love story. By doing this, you get to choose to love yourself passionately, flaws and all, and to do what feeds and nourishes that love.
As you grow confidant in your own acceptance and self-sufficient source of unconditional love, you’ll begin to write and live out the most compelling and fulfilling love story – that of you and your life! And, as you go along, you’ll find that all this love will naturally bubble over and spill out and be shared with those you choose to share it with and before you know it, your life will be rich and full with people and places and things that charm and delight and add so much wonder to your life.
It all starts, however, with YOU. By choosing you first, by loving yourself just how you are, you are giving yourself your power back. By passionately loving yourself you are choosing to break the cycle of judgement and hate that society fed to you. You have that ability, that power, that choice.
Go on adventures. Dance just because the music moves you. Be wild. Be crazy. Fill your life with what you want. Decorate in ways that make you smile. Create something, anything. Don’t be perfect. Get naked and love on every single part of yourself – it’s wonderful because you are alive and wonderful. Do your best to be gentle and nurturing with yourself.
Would you get mad at or be mean to a child who thought they were flawed? Or would you soothe them and fill their being up with kindness and love and all they ways they were awesome? Which one do you do to yourself?
The more you choose kindness and love for yourself, the easier it gets and the better off you are going to be. Nobody is worth less than the greatest passion and love and if you start to provide it for yourself, then so much more is going to follow. Like attracts like and in this case love will attract love. So be your own greatest passion and write your own love story – You are worth it!
