I have been feeling compelled to talk about self-love, not just because it is the “love” month but also because I know that the heaviness of the world right now is really weighing on each and every one of us in different ways. And I see in myself as well as those I care about deeply, how we are fighting so hard to feel good, positive and joyful. As a mother, homeschooler and business owner, I have to prioritize making a conscious effort to do at least one thing (many times it is small) every day that truly nourishes me. I have also been working hard at giving myself grace and forgiveness as well as looking at my positives rather then the areas where I don’t excel.
What is self-love?
Self-love is the fuel that allows an individual to reach their full potential, it is filled with compassion, grace, and gentleness. Making space and prioritizing ourselves allows us to embrace our lives completely and wholeheartedly. Self-love is learning to extend kindness towards ourselves, even when we struggle and suffer.
