If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Loving and believing in yourself is the key to thriving abundantly. When you love yourself—unconditionally—your mindset shifts to the energy of love and abundance. It enables you to have more peace, confidence, and happiness which empowers you. When you feel powerful, your attitude changes from pessimism to optimism, and, you will attract more uplifting people and experiences in your life.
To have self-love, appreciate who you really are. You are much more than your physical self. You are a magnificent spiritual being within. Your true essence is that of pure, positive energy, love, and light! You are of infinite worth. It is your divine birthright to live a joyful life filled with love, happiness, peace, and prosperity.
If you struggle with loving yourself, it’s most likely because you judge yourself for mistakes made or because you don’t feel valued or validated due to childhood experiences. You can change those memories by forgiving and forgetting. Forgive yourself and others in order to “let go” of what bothers you.
It doesn’t matter what your past was, what matters is where you are now and where you are going. Make peace with your life. Shift your perception of the memories that trouble you by creating “new memories” that have happy endings. Doing so will lighten your heart and bring peace to your mind.
Making mistakes is a part of the expansion process; it’s how we learn and grow. If you didn’t slip-up now and again, how would you know to improve yourself to be able to fulfill your destiny? How would you come to love and believe in you? You wouldn’t.
Just as young children triumph over the pains and obstacles of learning how to crawl, walk, and run, so it is when you overcome self-doubt and limiting beliefs. When you love yourself fully and believe in your unlimited potential, you will feel compelled to accomplish that which you feel inspired to do.
Think Lovingly of Yourself
If you struggle with loving you, notice how you talk to yourself. Habitual negative self-talk will keep you from fully embracing your authentic self. Stop the habit of self-loathing—it does not serve you—feelings of negativity only generate self-doubt and fears, which will keep you stuck miserably in an emotional rut.
Speak kindly of yourself. Set goals and follow through by honoring your word. Write down your positive attributes and affirmations, then read them daily. See yourself living as though you’ve already achieved your goals. Each morning awake with an attitude of love and gratitude, give thanks for all that you are and tell yourself, “I love being ME!”
When you love yourself completely, life will reflect back to you how you feel. You will attract more of what you want in all areas of your life. Believe in yourself! It’s your time to shine! Love and trust in all that you are to create the life of your dreams!
