Loving Yourself


  Listen On Any Platform


Hearts abound this time of year.

They are everywhere you look.

I don’t know about you but I often find it hard to fully love and appreciate myself exactly where I am, right now.

My thoughts quickly drift to self-improvement, home improvement, the what-ifs, and I coulds.

Or they float to the past.

The things I can pat myself on the back for.

The things I wish I had handled differently.

The shape I was in.

Depending on my mood, I can sit in accomplishments

Or defeats.

In this episode, I share with you how I shift into the mindset of loving myself exactly where I am at, presently.  

Without judgment or analysis.

I am not going to say it's easy.

But I am finding it to be vital.

As the magical and aligned Universe plants things in our path in perfect timing, the following quote on “loving myself” appeared in my Facebook feed this morning and it couldn’t be more perfect:

Charlie Chaplin once said:

“As I began to love myself 
I found that anguish and emotional suffering 
are only warning signs that I was living 
against my own truth. 
Today, I know, this is Authenticity.

As I began to love myself 
I understood how much it can offend somebody 
if I try to force my desires on this person, 
even though I knew the time was not right 
and the person was not ready for it, 
and even though this person was me. 
Today I call this Respect.

As I began to love myself 
I stopped craving for a different life, 
and I could see that everything 
that surrounded me 
was inviting me to grow. 
Today I call this Maturity.

As I began to love myself 
I understood that at any circumstance, 
I am in the right place at the right time, 
and everything happens at the exactly right moment. 
So I could be calm. 
Today I call this Self-Confidence.

As I began to love myself 
I quit stealing my own time, 
and I stopped designing huge projects 
for the future. 
Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, 
things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, 
and I do them in my own way 
and in my own rhythm. 
Today I call this Simplicity.

As I began to love myself 
I freed myself of anything 
that is no good for my health – 
food, people, things, situations, 
and everything that drew me down 
and away from myself. 
At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. 
Today I know it is Love of Oneself.

As I began to love myself 
I quit trying to always be right, 
and ever since 
I was wrong less of the time. 
Today I discovered that is Modesty.

As I began to love myself 
I refused to go on living in the past 
and worrying about the future. 
Now, I only live for the moment, 
where everything is happening. 
Today I live each day, 
day by day, 
and I call it Fulfillment.

As I began to love myself 
I recognized 
that my mind can disturb me 
and it can make me sick. 
But as I connected it to my heart, 
my mind became a valuable ally. 
Today I call this connection Wisdom of the Heart.

We no longer need to fear arguments, 
confrontations or any kind of problems 
with ourselves or others. 
Even stars collide, 
and out of their crashing, new worlds are born. 
Today I know: This is Life!”

I think that learning to love yourself in the moment is a skill.

That takes practice and dedication.

In this episode, I give you the tools I have learned thus far on my journey.

I am sure there are more to discover.

Because LOVE is magical.

In all its forms.

What will you do today to love yourself, exactly where you are at, right now?

When you are lonely
or in darkness,

The Astonishing Light
Of your own being!”
