We have to love ourselves. I know that this is something that I forget all of the time. I often feel like I am not worthy of love, that respect is as much as I can ask for or demand. But as people always say, how can you love someone else if you don’t love yourself?
So I’m gonna love myself.
I am strong. I am kind. I am brave. I am smart. I am special. I am worthy. I am a champion.
This affirmation, this speaking love into myself is just a reminder of what I need to hear. I give so much to others as a mom, wife, daughter, employee… I need to give back to myself too. I need to see what those trusted people in my circle see in me.
I wanna put this on, as Zora Neale Hurston says, I want to be astonished when people don’t love me or treat me fairly. It will remind me of my worth, remind me to advocate for myself, and remind me to be kind to me too.
I’m so excited about the Self Care series that we have coming up! The brainstorming process and planning with Jenina has really been a good way to be mindful of loving myself.
Have a good week, everyone! ❤
