Live for the journey, not the destination.
In your daily life, do you love yourself? Or are you waiting for the perfect timing to start loving yourself? Planning and choosing the right love-yourself activities to do soon? Or perhaps still trying to find the time for you and yourself? How about right now, make a decision to take the coming weekend or one day out for a road trip, completely dedicated for you alone to love yourself?
Loving oneself is a life long journey requiring on-going love-yourself activities to take place. You are probably aware of the importance of self-love and want to love ourselves more or you are already in the journey, but sometimes experience temporary stagnation at a point during the journey. You know the final destination to reach is that you are your best lovers; however for whatever reasons, you just don’t seem to move to the direction of destination. This is normal and possibly a good sign. It reminds you to enjoy any single moment during the journey, even when you are not even moving. When you stagnate, it means there is an invisible road block you don’t see. Take time to find out the root cause and overcome the obstacle at deeper level. You are one step closer to the destination.
The journey of self-love requires self-awareness, dedication, time spend with self, courage to face own weaknesses and vulnerabilities, gentleness, kindness and empathy for self, as well as actions and support to realize the self-love. It’s your life and the only one life; make sure you are very much loved, at least by you in your best ability.
Today I love myself by: (read the below aloud 3 times and listen to what you read)
I am a self-loving person who gives me care, attention and time; I spend quality time with myself. I am not waiting for a perfect time or day to love myself, but rather through everyday life activities, I love and enjoy the life journey with myself.
Today’s home work:
Take yourself out for a weekend road trip to nearby city or resort; just enjoy spending time with yourself, do things that you like or attend a seminar or workshop that enriches you.
Encouragement for myself:
