Would you look at that, the day of love. Some call it Valentine’s Day. I call it back day.
I wrote a lengthy caption for a photo I recently took that I would like to use for today’s blog. I want you to take things one step further though… Instead of just answering the questions in your head, I challenge you to sit down and really think them through. It’s one thing reading something, and another applying the lesson. If you really seek change, these are all questions I have asked myself and wrote down the answer to.
I’ll be honest, one year ago I probably couldn’t truthfully tell you that I loved myself. Self love is incredibly underrated and only talked about in cliche tones. It’s easy to say, “Well, Josh, I do love myself.” Well, I’m sure you do love yourself to a certain extent but how is the love dialogue you have internally.
Do you feel a sense of self worth or are you a bit empty? How do you talk to yourself about your faults? Do you call yourself names, even jokingly?
I get it, you love yourself. But do you love your imperfections both physically and spiritually?
Where is the awareness behind your thoughts, words, and actions? Do you know why you do what you do? Are you familiar with why you attract things financially, metaphysically, and romantically? Do you find yourself rebelling just to protect your own pride?
I’ve struggled in the past with self love. I was never good enough, which was directly translated into my real world relationships. I punished my soul by not providing it with what it requires to feel good. I hid my feelings and would say things that really weren’t true but didn’t speak the truth because I was afraid to admit I was down and lost.
Today, I have such a wholesome relationship with myself. I’m able to objectively look at my faults and failures in a perspective only seeking solutions to become better, not find ways to beat down the problem. I have found that sense of understanding within that allows me to see and be me for just who I am.
Take some time during the rest of the week and begin to ask yourself these questions. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting the different results. Restore your sanity, find out something about yourself.
Happy Valentine’s Day. I have so much love for you.
