Today and every single day it is important to have self-love, self-esteem and self-care and no it is not at all selfish. In order for us to love others, we must first learn to love ourselves. The relationship we have with ourselves is the longest relationship we will ever have here on earth.
When you are the object of someone else’s hatred and anger, remember self-love. Don’t ever allow another person to take your glow and your shine from you. Shine on!
God loves you just the way that He created you. Be yourself! Be your best self! Do it for yourself first and then for all others.
We teach others how to treat us by what we accept and what we tolerate and what we reflect. Most battles are won and lost within ourselves.
Stand tall, be proud and lead with your best self and most of all learn to love and to accept yourself. There really are no winners or losers there are happy people and unhappy people.
Happy people understand that it comes from within and that happiness is a choice.
As a kid growing up this was one of many mantra’s that my mother tried to teach us, “rise above it” and she meant whatever “it “was.
Every single one of us has “stuff” things that aren’t perfect about us or perfect in our lives. No one is perfect and no one has a perfect life. Part of the challenge in life is how we handle ourselves and our situations at any given time.
We are always afforded the choice to “rise above it” and with every choice in doing so we gain confidence in ourselves and are able to love, nurture, grow and gain in the process.
We can go low or we can rise up … each and every response creates a different set of consequences. We are only ever responsible for our own actions. What other people do is always all about themselves.
Rise above it! Rise above it! Rise above it! When we do this our life, our world, our self-esteem and our self-worth all rise too.
Remember not one of us is perfect and yet when we make the choice to rise about it we become perfectly attuned and at peace.
