Today’s reflection is simple. How do I love myself? Not, why, but how. What are the actions?
Is self-love an action or a feeling? Or an action caused by feeling? Or a feeling caused by action(s)?
The answer is… yes. Its all of those things.
But which comes first? Obviously its a dance back and forth, but I guess theres no definite answer and it could be different for everyone.
Its important though for me to mention that the feeling of self-love holds no ground without action and vice versa. So, is self-love contained in both?
So, in the end I feel that the feeling of self-love is unattainable without the actions of self-love. And, ALTHOUGH at ANY moment we can decide to love ourselves, even to arrive at this point of power would take actions.
So, in order to love ourselves, we must LOVE ourselves (the action.)
So, today, how do I love myself? By honoring my needs, by sending this message, by eating home-made chili, by researching foods best for my health, by hugging and kissing my best friend, by staring at pics of my future french bulldog, by investing into my passions, by stretching, by drinking lots of water and taking vitamins, by smiling and embracing all that I am.
And that could not have come without self-love.
The beautiful cycle continues! ❤
Thanks for being on the other side, Happy Sunday!
