We all want to experience love. To truly have a long-lasting relationship love must start with you first. I get it, I roll my eyes at that statement too. If you are giving from the overflow of the love inside of yourself, you will change yourself for the other person or want that person to change for you and that is the recipe for a bad relationship. Here are three ways to begin to love yourself profoundly so that more love can come your way. 1. Stop Pushing Yourself I realized this week how hard I push myself. Packing boxes for my move when I have a fever, is not a good idea and not very loving to myself. How hard are you pushing yourself? Are you the type that must send one last email before lunch or is working at 10 pm at night? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, STOP and ask yourself if this behavior is showing yourself love. 2. What’s Love Got To Do With It? Imagine abundance and love as a river. When you deny yourself love, you are stepping out of the flow of that abundant river. If you want to receive more in your life, open yourself up to loving yourself. Start small, by offering yourself love, or go big by looking into the mirror and telling yourself, “I love you.” 3. The Lonely-Hearts Club Do you know that at one point and time, everyone feels lonely? It is our perception that we are not supported, that we are not wanted that keeps us in the feeling that we do not belong. Take a deep breath and simply start the day with this intention: I AM creating a life full of love and abundance today. I CAN see the expression of love and abundance all around me…love to hear about your day. The most important relationship that you are in is the one with yourself. And, loving ourselves sometimes takes effort. If you are interested in exploring how you can love yourself more, secure a discovery a complimentary 15-minute private session.
