I don’t know anyone who hears Whitney Houston’s version of “The greatest love of all” without it sending chills down their spine. Not only because of her resplendent voice, but more importantly because the truth of her words also affects us in that way.
As many share this Valentine’s Day with their someone special, if you’re not in that camp it’s easy to feel like you’re missing out. I certainly felt that way. However, it wasn’t until I put the lyrics “learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all” into practice that things finally began to change.
You see, there was a point in time when I hated myself and my life so much that I wanted to end it. During that time no matter how much I tried, and trust me I tried, I kept attracting menwho would reflect how I felt about myself back to me. It also negatively impacted all other areas of my life as well. After all, most of us were never taught how to love ourselves. As a matter of fact, we were taught the complete opposite.
So, what is Self-Love? Well, it goes beyond attending to one’s appearance and daily needs. To me, it’s compassion, understanding, gentleness, self-awareness, acceptance, approval, empowerment, value, and honoring the divine complex being that we are.
Today, my highest coach’s purpose is to inspire your journey to loving yourself unconditionally.
Celebrate this intention by showing yourself some tenderness. Buy yourself a beautiful bouquet of red roses, chocolates, candles, or anything that will make you feel special, then top it off by writing a love letter from you to you. Let this experience set the stage for what’s to come.
Genuine Self-Love is incredibly magnetic, and it's through embodying these positive energies that you can be confident in attracting your ideal mate, prosperity, connections, and circumstances that must reflect the same back to you.
If no one has told you, know that:
I LOVE YOU I SEE YOU I FEEL YOU I GET YOU
To your outrageous happiness and success!
