Loving me some ME
Loving me some ME: #selfloveisthebestlove (1/2)

Let's talk about love. Let's talk about the greatest love you should have: self love...this is what I celebrate on Saint Valentine's day, because I want to and not because the commercial world makes it seem mandatory. This is why my build up to that day is all about celebrating myself and all I am and all I am becoming. There was a time in my life I didn't love who or what I saw in the mirror and couldn't even hold a conversation with that person. Less than a decade later, I am able to do all of that with so much love each day, I even got to help others as a Psychotherapist get on their transformation journey to #selfdiscovery and realize that #selfcareisimportant and yes that #selfloveisthebestlove . I am health and happy, #Iamfreedomnlove . Am looking forward to taking myself out on Sunday and just treating myself so so lovingly. I don't know about you, but no one can love me more than I love myself, nor make me love myself any less because I chose not to ever give any man or person that power again.  #mymentalhealthmatters  #livelovelaughlearn  #happylifestyle  #IamMAG

Hello Marie,

How are you doing? Thanks for sharing your lovely photo and empowering message. It's too true, the more love we give ourselves, the more we have to give to others, while inspiring others to do the same, too:-) Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Dear Marie,
Your messages of self love run deep, and are such an important ongoing reminder that we need to take care of ourselves, and be gentle and loving of ourselves. Your deep appreciation and love for yourself is inspiring, and with your words you make it easy for us to take time to appreciate ourselves and take care. I especially love that you share your deep journey into self care. I love the photos! Walk tall, walk strong, walk loving yourself with sass, dear sister.
Hugs,
Tam

Dear Tam,
Awwwwwww I start with the end of your comment. I will always remember to do it with SASS henceforth. Thank you so much. Indeed, many of us took in life just doing and seeking approval and love and acceptance and recognition from the world, our parents and friends and lovers and pets...all except to/from our own selves. This my year and I am not holding back. I am therefore glad my journey into filling myself with love and care and compassion and all, is found inspiring and encouraging by other sisters. Let's all give it our best
