I Love Myself in Order to Love Others



If you don't show love to yourself
how will you ever have the energy and emotion to show it to others?
If you don't give yourself time and attention occasionally
you will not be mentally, emotionally and physically well and whole and happy
and then able to share love and attention with others.
It is IMPORTANT to take SOME time for yourself.
Whether it is five minutes a day or one whole day a week (or month)
depending on your busy schedule just make some time for yourself.
Take a long bubble bath and recharge.
Stay in bed and read a book.
Curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and watch a chick flick.
WHATEVER it is that gives you some quality quiet time to yourself for rest, relaxation or just reflection on the past few days,
TAKE IT!
YOU deserve some love and attention
just as much as EVERYONE you are usually giving all of your time and attention to!
