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! ❤

This was awsome! This is something that I also have problems with , doing just for me. I feel guilty sometimes like I could be doing something else. I had to realize that even though I love other people I also have to love me as well and it’s ok. So one weekend out of every month I don’t get dressed if I put on clothes that I can wear outside , then outside I will go. I think after being married and with someone for 33 years, raised four wonderfully grown child, was blessed to have nine grandchildren and I have a relationship with all of them I also one grandchild one the way . I also run a business that I’ve have for eleven years now. Oh I did Ho back to school and got my degree and came out with a 3.96 GPA I think I deserve some self care just got to find the time for me
