Isn’t that so typical that we spend time loving so many people but forget one really important person, YOU!
You see I’ve realized that I can't properly love other people if I don’t pay attention to what going on with me.
Even the bible says to love your neighbor as you love yourself. So Yes, I’ve been taking some time to love myself so that I can come back refresh and rejuvenated to serve others. How about you? Will you join me on this love quest?
“Loving yourself” should be something you do occasionally. Don’t let your love tank run dry before you realize you need a refill. You may have experienced what happens when you allow the gas in your car tank get close to empty. The red light comes on and it becomes an emergency situation.
In order to avoid an emergency situation, I encourage you to spend some time today to love yourself. The first step is to create some “Me Time” to love yourself. I share the other steps in the video below.
I talk about 6 steps to take now to begin to love yourself.
1. Schedule a “Me Time”.
2. Write 3 things you want to achieve in this year.
3. What are those struggles that are preventing me from getting to my desired goals?
4. What actions can I begin to take right now to stop the self-sabotaging habits?
5. Take Action by taking small steps towards achieving your goal.
6. Celebrate Your Success – Big or Small.
