The Self Love Project

typorama-2

I posted this quote on my social media the other day and got some serious reactions to it.  I think I hit a nerve…  

Do you think something needs to be said about the concept of Self-Love?  Heck yeah there is!  It never gets old and it’s a matter of fact, it’s a subject we will be visiting very often on our journey together.

There is something I have to share with you about this journey: Self-Love is not somewhere we “get to” but a continuum we live.  This is not some pill we can take to get better, some course we take and then get tested on to pass.  

Do you ever wonder why this is such a popular subject?  In my humble opinion, it’s because this is an ongoing process where you can easily forget your way to making your own happiness, sometimes unbeknownst to you.  

Let me paint some pictures for you, maybe you will understand more what I mean: you are minding your own business sleeping or relaxing, and then “BOOM!!!!” you feel like a train hit you emotionally and you are a pure wreck.  You have no idea why you have this horrible pit in your stomach.  There is no reason why you should feel so tense.  But it’s here, this lingering, viscous, slimy feeling that is oozing out of your soul.  Sounds familiar?

When someone says something negative to you, do you take it personally?  Do you maul this interaction over several times, beating yourself up for one reason or another over it?  

Now you understand what I am talking about?  Indeed, we get hit several times in a day with different reasons why we should self-loath if we let it.  

I found out that all this happens whether we like it or not, and it is continuously attacking our well being.  So we have to be vigilant and prepare ourselves for when we get hit with those vicious thoughts and feelings.  If they actually get to us, we have to implement tactics we learn along the way to regain our peace and realign with our Source.

Self Love is a MUST!   

Let me know what you think, how you practice it, how you get back up when you are pulled down/dragged down by negativity.

When you share your thoughts, you will help us all add more tools to our Self Love kit.  Are you in?

  1. this is so important – self love is so important but mostly, being taken for granted by so many people these days. This is a good reminder for each of us to love “me” or ourselves.

  2. How i love this post! Thank you so much for sharing. If you don’t love and accept yourself for who you are, who would? When I’m down i try to talk in calming positive enforcement to myself. I might crazy but it’s a good way to keep on track!

    • Hi RayneQ!!! I am so glad you stopped by to visit! Speaking positive affirmations to yourself is NOT crazy at all, lady! It is a tool I use VERY often and I love it! Thank you for sharing and I hope you stay tuned, I welcome your insight 🙂

  3. I truly think you have to love yourself in order to love others. I also believe that we teach people how to treat us. When we respect ourselves, usually others recognize it and treat us accordingly.

    • Ooh! Alli, that was really deep and definitely on the path we are going! Thank you for this insight and watch for the next few posts that will be talking about just that: you cannot give what you do not have, right?

  4. It took me many years to get over what other people thought and to love myself for who I am. I find that working out and surrounding myself with friends that love me no matter what is the best way to keep loving myself!

    • It’s great to know you are now practicing Love for yourself and that you found how to do it. Thank you so much for sharing your tools, Lisa. That is awesome that you have many loved ones and that you are able to workout. Awesome 🙂

  5. This is definitely a continuum. Well said! We add to the basis of self love with all of our interacts. Such an important topic to keep in mind. Especially on our bad days.

  6. What an inspirational project, I Love this so much. It took me years to get confident. And now I am rockin it.

  7. I would imagine that would hit a nerve with people!! It is so important to know how to love yourself, it took me a while to realize it.

    • Tammilee, its not something that we can just take as a pill, this Self-Love thing… LOL! But I am glad you were able to realize it and am hoping you are able to apply it to your life!

  8. Self love or self care is really important. At the end of the day all of our emotions are up to us!

  9. It can be hard to stay positive and optimistic when things go awry. I always try to be proud of myself and confident regardless of what others say. It can be challenging to do, but it’s worth it!

    • When we are in a culture that promotes giving importance to what others think, we have to get vigilant about being confident. I am glad you see the importance of this work!

  10. Self-love is great defense against negativity. I think it can take time to learn but it’s important.

  11. So important, fantastic post. When you start to stop caring what others think and say about you and then start focusing on your life then you wil lbe happier for it!

  12. This is indeed a great post and topic. If we can except compliments than I feel we need to except criticisms too. We are truly in charge of how we want are life to be and I would rather think positive instead of negative. Positive brings positive energies and negative brings negative energies. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you for your insight Rebecca! That was well said: Positive brings positive and negative always brings negative. It’s up to people to choose and the hope is that they actually know they are able to make that choice 🙂

  13. The older I get, the better I get at it. Spending time doing things I love on my own helps. I had to learn to be okay with myself.

  14. This is something I really need to work on personally. Great post.

  15. Sometimes we do get caught up in the world of trying to make a living that we forget to live. My mom always told me that I cannot love unless I love myself first. Before I can be a “person for others,” I should start with being a “person for myself” first.

    Self love is such a simple concept but it’s so hard for some of us to get. If you don’t love yourself, you can’t truly love anyone else.

  17. We really have to have self love because it’s how you can pour love out of you to another.
