Love vs. True Love.
Before you read on, think about your own feelings and thoughts about Love and True Love for a moment. Are they one in the same? Or two different entities? What is True Love to you? How do you know you have True Love?
When we're in love, we can't wait to express it to the world. It's that incredible feeling, the surge of emotions, the skip of a heartbeat, that makes us want to shout out to the world "I LOVE .....!!" It's so wonderful to be in love!! But, in order to spread our love, it's main source has to be in love, too. That main source is YOU....the True Love Within YOU and For YOU.
In order to experience True Love, "Self-love" is imperative. It's easier to say "I love you" than it is to say "I love me." Over time we've been made to believe loving oneself is narcissistic and self-centered. Yet, one cannot truly express love without having love for themselves. Our dear friend and mentor, Giovanna Garcia, has rephrased this self-love statement to "I am Love." She certainly said it best.
Today, begin your journey in discovery True Love for yourself. Let's start off with naming 5 things you love about YOU. You're most likely a great friend, good listener or a wonderful parent. You possess amazing qualities such as being caring, generous and kind. You have beautiful brown eyes, shiny hair and a great smile. Don't hold any love back. If you have more than 5, that's WONDERFUL!! Be sure to write them down in a journal or even a post-it note and have it visible where you'll see it often. The bathroom mirror and your computer screen are perfect places to post your expressions of love to yourself!
So, tell us, what do you love most about being YOU? We see beauty all around us, and we see yours through the computer screen. Tell us all about it.
Part 2 will continue your journey to True Love. We look forward to seeing you at our next post.
