Every year on New Year’s Day I post the following message on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter:
It’s a popular message and I believe it’s because on a fundamental level, we all know that loving ourselves – appreciating who we are and valuing our own company – is the key to everything. After all, we limit the good we allow into our lives by how worthy and deserving we feel.
Early this morning, as I hugged a warm cup of tea and stared outside at the rising sun, I thought about how I’d love myself more in 2019.
I’d like to cultivate an ongoing awareness of my true nature – a soul whose consciousness extends beyond her physical body.
I want to remember this truth, especially when I feel overly attached to anything.
I’d like my soul to take the lead rather than my ego when it comes to making choices and decisions about my life.
I want to continue to simplify my home and office by removing what I don’t love or need.
I look forward to sharing more quality time with curious, interesting, and fun people.
And I intend to schedule more unstructured time to live spontaneously, responding to the desires that strike in the moment.
As I’ve shared before, Louise Hay once told me:
“You will be with you longer than anyone else on the planet so why not make it a good relationship?”
Loving yourself does just that. This week, be sure to include this question in your thoughts about next year: How will you love yourself more in 2019?
Happy New Year!
