Love Yourself So Others Can Love You Too!

The one thing all human souls have in common is the need for love in our lives. To give…..and receive love.

It starts with self love, with loving yourself. People generally follow your lead; if you love YOU, you attract that same love into your life.

It’s time to give to you… and believe me that is not a selfish act.

If you’re asking; Terri, how do I show myself love? I would answer by saying; Love yourself like you would someone else. Cook a meal for yourself as if you were the guest. Use your best dishes! Pamper yourself like you would do for someone who were visiting your home. Surround yourself with items that speak about love. Light a candle at dinner time and eat a fancy dessert because you’re worthy of it.

Take care of the outer you: Care for your appearance, it’s not about vanity it’s about showing your body you care. So many times I see women who are mothers whose children look like a million bucks, but they’re sporting sweats and ponytails. These moms take care and pride in how their children leave the house in the morning but do little to nourish their own appearance.

Take care of the inner you: Use positive affirmations to re-adjust your thinking patterns. You wouldn’t insult a friend by saying you’re ugly, you’re stupid…ect. Be protective of what you are feeding to yourself with your thoughts and words. You may feel a little silly repeating positive affirmations to yourself in the mirror, but tell yourself you’re doing it for your own good.

When you practice loving yourself others will click in and suddenly you’ll find love being drawn into your life.

Love yourself first, so others can love you too!
