We all want the same thing…

Being loved, accepted, feel we are seen…

We all want to feel loved…

We all want to feel accepted…

We all want to be seen…

And we all look for that outside of us…because we feel we need to find it outside of ourselves…

And we forget to look inside…

We forget that we are the only ones who can understand what it is going on inside us…

We are the only ones who can sit with ourselves to really know what it is going on…

So in the search of all the love, acceptance and significance…

we forget that we are the ones who can love us first

who can accept us first

who can really see who we are first.

I can hear you asking yourself…how do I do that?

It takes practice…daily practice…

Loving yourself is allowing 5 minutes to sit down while you have a cup of tea

Loving yourself is acknowledging that you are tired and going to bed a little earlier

Loving yourself is to speak kindly to yourself when you overacted about a situation

Loving yourself is allowing you to doing one thing you love each day…

reading a book…

going for a walk…

listening to music…

dancing…

drawing…

Loving yourself is acknowledging where you are at with your exercise routine

eating habits

your meditation practice…

and telling yourself

I am not looking for perfection…I am looking for progression.

Loving yourself is celebrating something you do well each day

When we look for approval, love and acceptance on the outside…we forget to look inside.

Today I invite you to look on the inside…and to notice how it feels…
