“Until your fundamental relationship with yourself is healed, then your relationship to food is doomed to be neurotic.”
~ Marianne Williamson in “A Course in Weight Loss”
To live for our highest self is to be at our best health, living healthfully is a show of self-love, and we must possess plenty of self-love to live healthfully. A good relationship with yourself. If you have neither self-love nor good health, you are not living your best life.
Today is Sunday and a new week dawns upon us. A week for love and lovers, chocolate and roses. So American, so commercialized, so over-the-top and yet so irresistible.
This year, make Valentine’s Day about self-love. Loving your self. Being your own Valentine. (Although try not to forget about your spouse/partner/lover/children in the process.) Treating yourself to simple luxuries and at least one that is extraordinary.
If you feel guilty, remember this: you are a gentle creature, navigating your way through an unforgiving world. It’s a jungle out there and life is not easy. You deserve as much TLC as you can get. Don’t be shy. Show yourself some real loving.
Are you convinced yet? What will you do for yourself this week?
As for me, I don’t know yet. Something good and lots of little things, and I will be sharing. On Twitter with hash tag #selflove and on this blog!
