Dearly beloved we a gathered here today to get through this thing we call life. This lyric was from the beginning of Prince song, Let’s Go Crazy. This lyric speaks on so many volumes for me because everyone is trying to get through life. It’s a roller-coaster. We have our up’s and downs twists and turns. We are all trying to figure out our journey.On my journey, I’m learning and reading different books on personal and spiritual growth, and it seems one of the essential messages is SELF-LOVE. It’s something my mother is always talking to me about. SELF-LOVE in my opinion is…
- Being honest with yourself
- Choosing your happiness
- Thinking positively
- Daily affirmations
- Stop looking outside of yourself for value
Every day, I’m finding something to love about myself. I do have days when I’m moody and reclusive, but when that happens, I reflect on the good and change my energy. Usually, I’ll pamper myself, enjoy nature by rollerblading or walk through the park, dance or sing along to my favorite songs, basically doing whatever to uplift my mood. What are some ways you uplift yourself?
I’ll end with this quote by RuPaul, “If you can’t love yourself how the hell you gonna love somebody else.” I take this quote and apply it to myself, and you can too, as well. Remember it’s all about LOVE, and it’s one of the values to get you through this thing called life.
