There’s a new kind of energy in the air today! Today we are going to practice the art of letting shit go! Let it go! It’s not needed and it does nothing but hold us back. We are also going to practice the art of loving ourselves completely, unconditionally with all we have to love. We are worth it! It is as it should be! Today we will be in the moment and enjoy each breath!
It’s a very freeing and empowering feelings when you find your own light. When you realize that love, light and happiness has always been inside YOU. There is no need to look to outside sources to make yourself happy or to make your life complete. You are already whole, you are already complete. Just as you are!
For all the givers in the world… those who put themselves last in order to do for others… Take the time to put yourself first from time to time. It’s a hard task, because it’s not who you are but it’s what you need sometimes. I started the year saying that this is what I was going to do, I was going to put myself first this year… well I have failed so many times but I’m not giving up on myself. I can do this! I can do more for me, I can and I will. I deserve to be kinder to myself, more loving to me… allow myself more time to do what makes ME happy.
When was the last time you looked in the mirror and said “I Love You” to yourself? It’s great to love others and to be kind and give to as many people as you like, but don’t neglect yourself in the process. You deserve a little love too, ya know!
A dear friend of mine posted a picture of a loving young couple and stated that “2015 is going to be the year I fall in love again… Onward and upward Its coming.. its my turn. I can feel it”. (Thank you Januarie for the inspiration)
My instant response to her post was, “I’m going to fall back in love with me!”.
For years I have taken to heart all the terrible things others have said and done to me. I have allowed these words and actions to get stuck in my head, swirling around like a vicious tornado, destroying every positive thought that appeared. I allowed this. These are important words “I ALLOWED THIS”. I would tell myself all the time that I was not what they made me feel like. Their words and actions are a reflection of them and not me. I would repeat these things to myself all the time and yet their negative words and actions still swirled around in my head, leaving me feeling sad, hurt, alone, ugly, useless, undesirable, etc.
I knew these things they said and did were not really about me, so why were they so stuck in my head? Why couldn’t I get them out? Why was I hanging on to them? That’s it! I held on to those words and actions, I was the one who could not let them go. Why? I’m guessing a multitude of reasons, dating back to my earliest memories as a child. I know I wasn’t born to feel this way, so it must have been a million little things throughout my lifetime that just gathered like dust under grandma’s old dresser, that over time built up into the largest, scariest dust bunny anyone has ever seen!
2015 is the year I begin learning how to love myself again. I’m going back to the day I was born. Fresh and new to the world without all the crap others left at my door. I’m no longer a collector of their shit. I am falling in love this year and it’s going to be the best happily ever after in history. I’ll be falling back in love with myself. Loving every imperfect inch of me, flesh and bone, body, mind and spirit. I’m going to love every gift, every fault, every thing that I am. I will own it and I will love it! I will love me! Once and for all I WILL LOVE ME!
This is my gift to myself this year… TRUE LOVE… HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
