What do you think of when you think of the “greatest love of all”.
Many of you as moms will automatically think of your love for your children.
What is the greatest love of all?
Growing as a person, expanding, unfurling your wings in preparation for soaring to even new heights is in our soul and DNA.
But, there’s something you need for personal growth, every one of us needs, in fact. Without it growth is slow and tedious and often takes off on wandering (not in a good way) paths.
Self-love can seem like a lofty notion of “if life were perfect” I could worry about it or can even seem a little self-centered or negative.
It’s not at all.
Watch this week’s vlog to find out why self-love is the greatest love of all HERE.
You see, without growing yourself, your container or capacity to love, you can only love others so much.
In order for you to love deeper and experience that depth of love in return, you have to first turn that love inward toward yourself.
You also want to model self-love for your children so they have a bigger container and can experience giving and receiving love at a deeper level for the rest of their lives.
The first step to self-love is to start being aware of your needs.
Get a journal and start writing down what you need – even if you can’t fulfil those needs or see how it’s possible to fulfill those needs – just become aware of them.
Knowing what you need is the first step to getting what you need, taking care of yourself, asking for help, weeding out all the things that are not you and knowing yourself better, saying no, and a huge list of things that go a lot with self-love.
So take 5 minutes today and write down a list, even if it seems crazy amidst all that you do, especially if starting to write down your needs for 5 minutes is the first time in a long time that you’ve actually taken the time to focus on you.
I’d love it if you would share a couple things that you came up with that you need in the comments below.
I’ll share mine, because I know that the more we share our needs and self-care/self-love the more it seems to give us permission to pay more attention to that for ourselves.
