Self Love in Action
Many of us have grown up with the idea or belief that taking time for self or making sure your needs are met first is selfish. I am suggesting that making time to make sure you are filled up is a priority.
When we are filled with love from the inside, we are better able to share that love, compassion and kindness with others. We have much more capacity to deal with challenges and not take things personally. Our mind is clearer and we can come up with creative solutions, and have more rewarding conversations. The more filled up we are, the more capacity we have to fulfill our dreams.
Love is an action. One does not feel loved unless there is an action involved. I could love someone a great deal but if I don’t spend time with them, talk to them, or demonstrate my love for them through another action, then they never feel the love. You must do things for yourself for you to feel love from yourself.
So where do you start?
1. Start with one action a day. If time is an issue start to schedule time for yourself to do an activity that fills you up.
