“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” –Oscar Wilde, Irish Writer (1854-1900)
Today I felt compelled to remind you (yes you!) of your brilliance. Sometimes we get caught up in the day to day grind of life and forget. We forget what wondrous, incredible, magnificent beings we are.
You might be finding it hard to accept that these words describe you. You might think that these words are reserved for people who are more special, who ‘know’ more, who have something that you don’t. I totally disagree. Let me put it to you this way…when you were born, your parents loved you with all their hearts. They were besotted and mesmerised by you. They loved you just for BEING. They didn’t need you to accomplish anything or DO anything. You just had to be and you were loved.
What if we could love ourselves like that too? What if we didn’t reserve inner love for times when we achieved something or did something incredible? What if we could love ourselves for simply being here? For that is a wondrous, incredible and magnificent thing in itself.
Today I felt compelled to remind you of your brilliance. I dare you to begin that lifelong romance. I guarantee you it will be the most beautiful adventure you ever go on.
With gratitude and love,
