18 Jun Are YOU On Your LOVE List?
This morning, the idea of writing a list of everything you LOVE popped into my mind – so I went with it.
I started to write mine down and thought – oh, I am going to add a fun “ME” spin, THEN – ooooohhhhh! – maybe I should start a series of “Soultank Love Fuel” posts inspiring my darling audience to write a list that focuses on all sorts of things they love – by category like what they love about and doing with their partners, littles (human or furry), best friends… you get the idea. (Welcome to the fuzzy bunny swirlings and twirlings of my mind – lol!)
Okay, back to the list. Well, I started to write a list of everything I love and realized, while it is all about things I love – I wasn’t on the list.
When you slow down and think about this… It truly hits you.
When was the last time you put YOURSELF on your own THINGS I LOVE list?
If you are scratching your head thinking:
“I am pretty sure if you never asked me this questions, I would never have thought to include myself!”
You are not alone.
Remember, I didn’t immediately think of me, either.
That actually inspired me to think
“WHY WE DON’T NATURALLY DO THIS?”
- Loving yourself is a requirement to loving others.
- Loving yourself is a Biblical Principle.
- Loving yourself helps you accept who you are.
- Loving yourself gives you confidence.
- Loving yourself changes your outlook on everything else.
Just like when we fall in love everything around us becomes more beautiful and appealing… falling in love with yourself is no exception!
So, today, take some time to write a list of all the things you LOVE ABOUT YOURSELF.
Here is a list of things to inspire you:
