You breathe in the air to fill your lungs. Closing your eyes, you are absolutely grounded at that moment. Taking a mental photo so you can always remember how you felt and what you just witnessed.
It’s easy to paint that picture in your mind. Maybe because you have experienced it for yourself in one way or another. Or maybe because it’s easy enough to use your mind’s eye to create your version of what that landscape is.
The self-love journey begins with the imagery I just described – so to speak. But this time, you are the beautiful landscape worthy of being in awe of. You are indeed looking at the mirror of your untold story. The story that lives within you and has yet to be discovered.
Why is it so easy to love others and moments of connectivity, but it is hard to love ourselves? A question that I myself had to ponder and work through. A journey that changed my life forever and for the better.
We place so much of our worth at the feet of someone, anyone who can validate our sense of self and our love. It may have started at a young age and it builds up over time. We lose sight of the one person we need to love first: SELF.
