Mary Beths Week 2 LOVE Blog
This weeks positive principle is “All About LOVE”. It has been another great experience for me this week. Lots more realizations and steps forward in my love and acceptance of myself and my career journey.
With that said, let's talk about love. In particular self-love. A few weeks ago a friend posted on Facebook this question, “If you could say any two words to your 17 year old self what would they be?”. I said, “Love Yourself”. I feel there is nothing more important to realize. No one ever taught me the importance of loving myself. I believe loving yourself is critical to having a good self-esteem. We sometimes go through life with this way of thinking of how we “should” be physically and in every other way instead of loving and accepting ourselves unconditionally. Much of that thinking is filtered through the messages we get from the media. Our media is sending these messages everywhere you turn that we should look a certain way or have a certain status. These messages also set us up for always making comparisons with others in how we feel about ourselves which then creates thinking that we are never good enough or we don't measure up. I think this especially true for a lot of women.
One of the things I have created for myself this week is a daily love routine. I have begun to start and end each day with giving love to myself , love to my current and my future career, and sending love out to others as well. I have also added a daily mantra that Max suggested saying to myself out loud every morning and every night, I love myself, I love my life!
All in all the message of love was very personal to me and I am learning to love myself a little bit more everyday. I also believe that it is just as important to send love to others as well as situations in our life. In sending out love the Universe can't help but return that love back to us.
