It seems that we live in a society where productivity, achievement and success are valued. I agree that these are important. I see how they all fit together. However, what I see as most important is LOVE.
Love can be expressed in so many different ways: in relationships, words, touch, writing, song, music, dance, respect. There is no greater feeling than to love deeply and be loved in return. There is no greater feeling than the oneness that comes from knowing we are part of a greater whole. There is no greater feeling than knowing Divine Love.
If Love is so beautiful, why then do people struggle so much with self-love?
Loving ourselves should come first, but often, it does not. We are so tough on ourselves. Our expectations are high as we go through our day. We cannot seem to forgive ourselves (or others, sometimes) for mistakes made. We hold our pain deeply and secretly.
I adore the recent body-positive movement. It is brilliant and significant. We need to embrace our bodies in a healthy way – whatever shape and size they are.
I believe that the world needs a SELF-LOVE MOVEMENT, too! Do you agree?
