To Love Oneself is the Beginning

Reflect & Evolve

"To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance." - Oscar Wilde

Do you feel down, guilty, or even depressed when you break a commitment to yourself? How proud are you when you do what you say you are going to do, AND you do your best at it?

This week's reflection begs us to see the joy in loving ourselves.   

Personal integrity is the state of being whole or undivided. When we stay true to our word, our internal energy aligns with our outward energy. We tend to feel satisfied with ourselves and may even become more kind to others. We also tend to make healthier choices, which results in even more pride in self.

When we don’t follow through on our word, we tend to project our failings onto others. We may become short-tempered, impatient and critical of others. We tend to eat poorly, overindulge in toxic activities and talk about others (a temporary ego fix). 

On this beautiful day of love and expression, let us remember how essential it is to love ourselves first and foremost. Simple acts of daily self-love can be empowering, nourishing and result in better relationships with others. 

Some ideas for self-love include:

  • taking a hot, Epsom salt bath with aromatherapy soap
  • preparing a nourishing meal for yourself; being 100% mindful while eating it
  • spending extra time massaging your feet while moisturizing
  • committing to 5 minutes of meditation/reflection daily
  • Smiling at yourself in the mirror
  • Stating a positive affirmation first thing in the morning such as “I am a beautiful person. Today, I will express this beauty by staying true to my word.”

This week, let’s all commit to at least one act of self-love per day. The more we care for ourselves, the more we love ourselves, the more we naturally radiate love to others. As the law of attraction goes then, the more we express love, the more love will find its way back to us. 

What a beautiful cycle that starts with YOU!
