This subject has been on my mind for quite a while now and is also very close to my ♡ as some of you know. For a long time, I didn’t love myself at all, let alone my body. It was easier to love someone else and ignore myself. Instead of actually truly love me in every way, shape or form.
Accepting my body has been a lonely road
I can honestly tell you it has been a lonely road, there is a big chance you recognise this. And actually now in hindsight, I see a lot of situations, probably (most definitely) been attracted by the way I was acting, talking, and feeling. How are you handling this subject, the love for your body? Do you completely love yourself? And how about your body? Do you love all unconditionally? Or do you find it hard to do so too? I can completely understand you, I have been there! And…. this has nothing to do with your weight or your looks. You can have the most ideal weight (whoever has decided that there was an ideal weight), or you have the most amazing looks and still feel miserable!
My True Being is not my physical body
It comes from something deeper, it comes truly from the inside out. At some stage, we have started to believe that our beliefs weren’t as valuable as others. And I am aware that I have been estranged from my true Being…. It has given me a lot of tears, sadness and I have kept myself small, although in my case my physical body was becoming bigger. And I feel now that this was me, craving even more attention from myself…. You become what you think and oh boy, did I do well here! So the Law of Attraction works really well!
When I made the conscious decision last year to Surrender, I felt the need to go back to what I believed were, the basics. LOVE ME FIRST! Wow, that has been a journey of 46 yrs and now I suddenly wanted to change my habits, my beliefs, and even my feelings? I think I always have known deep down inside that I deserved way more SELF LOVE and CREDITS than I actually gave myself. This was the moment and I was brave enough to dive into it.
Really, I wasn’t aware that I needed to change the way I was THINKING about myself. Nor, the way how I was FEELING about myself. I didn’t straight go into the body part because at this stage. First I had to get used to the idea and allowed myself some time to get my head around. It felt it was just a bridge too far at this stage! I started to pay attention to the words that came out of my mouth and how I would feel in general. And slowly on I felt shifts within me, I started to focus on things I was doing well already, on the compliments people would give me, normally I would dismiss them and slowly on I started to feel the power of receiving.
I am now at the stage that I have chosen to unapologetically love myself and my body and to even fall in love with me (again). Sometimes I wonder …. why have I waited so long? but of course, I needed all the other experiences first to come this far! I am in such a different space now and life became more abundant than ever and I just love my life, my body, and where I am. Wouldn’t we all want this in our life?
I love me and therefore I love you,
