Loving Yourself First

Lioness, if you are ready to set your moxie on fire – you are right where you are supposed to be. Grab your favorite beverage and let’s do this!

A few years ago, on a Valentine’s Day, the idea of writing a list of everything I LOVE popped into my mind – so I went with it.

I started to write it out and also encouraged you – my divine Lioness community to write a list, too!

As I reviewed my write list of everything I love, I realized – I wasn’t on the list. 

What!? I preach and teach about self-love and self-care and self-confidence. 

Why was I not on my mind?

So, I asked all of you about your lists and you said the same thing. I am not on mine either!

Slow down and think about this… let it soak into your soul.

When was the last time you put YOURSELF on your own THINGS I LOVE list?

This series of events inspired me to dig into why we don’t naturally do this…

  • Loving yourself is a requirement before we can actually love 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 other Lionesses have shared to inspire you:

  1. Your giggle
  2. Your generosity
  3. Your spontaneity
  4. Your faith
