Before you immediately think that I’m just being incredibly self-centered, let me explain a bit further.
I am. In a way. I have always been pretty good at helping people, whether I know them well or not. I have not always been the kindest to myself. I think this probably rings true for many people. When I am asked what makes me happy, my default response is “cuddling, puppies, sunshine and making other people happy.” This is still very true, but in the past few years of self-growth and definitely in the past few months of self-discovery, I’ve really come to realize the utmost importance of self-love.
The great news is that it’s not selfish at all to love yourself. You will be more productive in life, love and overall success and happiness because you will feel comfortable and confident in your own skin!
Here’s an assignment for today. It is the start of a new month. We’re more than halfway through the year. Sit down on the floor for five minutes and think about this year. Have you accomplished what you set out to do at the beginning of the year? Have you encountered obstacles? Have you moved through them with a level head? Have you helped as many people as you can? And here’s a very important one: Have you taken care of yourself? This could mean any combination of things like diet, exercise and doing things that make you excited, make you laugh and make you feel good. Are you happy with where you are, physically, mentally and financially?
If the answer to any (or all!) of these is yes, then GREAT, keep doing what you’re doing! If the answer is no to any of these questions, then it’s time for some serious self-development. Self-development towards making you the most loving, generous, kind, warm, helpful and emotionally available person… to yourself!
You can cultivate self-love anywhere; quietly sitting down, on your head, walking in the woods, driving through a city or paddling on a lake.
