“May you kiss who you please… and please who you kiss” Old English Toast
Love is in the air. True love lasts a lifetime and it starts with you!
I've recently been through a major medical transformation which has changed practically everything in my world. Through this experience the biggest lesson I’ve learned is that it is essential that we learn how to love ourselves through anything and everything that shows up in our lives. Now that all sounds real simple, like it’s a done deal and wrapped up in pretty neat package with a romantic red ribbon, but how does learning to love yourself actually happen? Well for me, I will tell you it is one baby step at a time. It took me a million baby steps to get here and I figure “here” is in the middle of my journey. A journey is not about the destination it’s about being present in each and every moment of the adventure and the choices you are making in that moment.
We are all on the edge of something and yet we spend so much time being kind to others and save hardly any of that time for ourselves. If you’re anything like how I used to be, you have to go down kicking and screaming until you stop and make time for yourself and self-care or you get physically ill and your body makes you do it. Well trust me, I’ve learned the hard way taking care of yourself can be one of the most loving things you can do!( for everyone you love)
Do you remember that old song by Ricki Nelson, “Garden Party?”. .. “It’s alright now I’ve learned my lesson well, you can’t please everyone so you’ve got to please yourself”
After all, you are the only human being you will be spending your entire life with; you might as well make it as wonderful and loving of a lifetime as you can. I can promise you that you will be indeed a much more loving and supportive person to others too. Once you are filled up with all that good stuff you’ve got way more good stuff to give!
