The ability to love yourself
The journey of life takes us on so many twists and turns and it a lesson is faith, hope and love. There are many disappointments throughout...along with wonderful lessons, joy, tears and laughter.....The one thing that I have learned during my 40-something years is that through it all you have to love yourself...Oh, I know this is not an easy feat...We all have our times in the barrel when we get down on ourselves and life and how unfair it is at times. Hey...put on your big girl panties and deal with it...And while you are slipping them on, whether they be cheeky, thong, granny or BVD's, remember that life is a gift and each day a new adventure. Also remember that you are your own worst critic and if you learn ways to love yourself throughout the tough times, then you will always have something to keep you going. Now, I have an awesome friend who I tell all the time that she is her own worst enemy....She is the most loving, generous, kind spirited person I have ever known. I only wish she knew it and believed in herself more. She lives life as if every second is her last and fills each day with new things, places, foods and people. I love to live vicariously through her and see the world as she does. I tell her all the time how incredibly special she is and how lucky I am to have her in my life.......My quote for the day is " love yourself the way God loves you". He made us all different for a reason. Embrace who you are!
