Okay, the cat is out of the bag, I’ve been found out…Yes, I am in love.
Over the past few months I’ve had many people stop and ask me if I am in love. I have that glow, that “look”. So yes, I am. It is a wonderful feeling to have finally found that peace and inner joy that love brings to one’s life. To feel secure, to feel alive.
It has been a very long time, if ever, that I have felt this type of love. I have shared with all of you my past few years of struggle to rid myself of past baggage that has been dragging me down and to establish, within myself, what is most important to me…what is acceptable and what is not. I have chosen to no longer accept relationships that are not fulfilling and nurturing. I have placed a higher price tag on my worthiness.
So who is this new love in my life?
It is me.
Yes, I have fallen in love with myself. Louise L Hay would be proud. Over twenty years ago she introduced me to the concept of looking in the mirror and saying, “I love you.” It was not a comfortable exercise. This message was once again reinforced, earlier this year, by my native seer, when he told me to start each day by looking in the mirror and saying, “I am somebody” and by doing so, I would be acknowledging the God within me. Again, it was not an easy exercise.
Somewhere, during these past few months, all my hard work has paid off… I didn’t even realize that I was in love until that first person asked me, and that is when I finally acknowledged that, yes, I was indeed enveloped by this most precious of emotions; made even more precious by the fact that I did it on my own, for myself.
The best gift one can give themselves is the gift of loving themselves. We just need to feel worthy of this love and for a lot of people, this is easier said than done. In my book, I addressed the need to take back one’s sense of power, to no longer put ourselves aside in order to be in a relationship. In my next book, I will be addressing the importance of worthiness.
We are all worthy of love and respect. We just need to own these simple, yet powerful words.
My wish for you, this holiday season, is that this be the year that you give yourself the gift of love.
