What if there's something you can do today, right now, to bring more kindness into this world?

Self Love

Self

Love

How do those two syllables make you feel?

Does your body revolt? Rolling its eyes, maybe even letting out a chuckle.

Does your mind contrive the cheesy Hollywood films and their happily-ever-after endings?

I don't blame you.

It's only natural when you're constantly reminded, you're not enough, but with hard work and dedication you can be great!

Self Love isn't a fairy tale. Far from it.

Self Love isn't a fairy tale. Far from it. It's practical,

Self Love isn't a fairy tale. Far from it. It's practical, you can feel it,

Self Love isn't a fairy tale. Far from it. It's practical, you can hold it,

Self Love isn't a fairy tale. Far from it. It's practical, you can see it,

It's the act of not doing, not changing, not perfecting.

Next time you feel frustrated or upset, pause...

No seriously, press pause.

Take three deep breaths.

Take three deep breaths. Notice how this emotion is showing up in your body.

Can you acknowledge and respect this emotion?

Can you look at it as a friend? A friend who is trying to tell you something.

A friend is patient, understanding, and supportive.

A friend is patient, understanding, and supportive. I am literally asking you to be your own friend.

Don't hurry it away. Invite it in, welcome it.

Take deep breaths,

Take deep breaths, drink more water,

Take deep breaths, drink more water, sleep a little more.

Self-love is a practice.

Self-love is a practice. And with any practice, you have to CHOOSE to show up.

Choose YOU.

Choose YOU. Choose LOVE.
