Self-Love: What does this mean to you?  
There was a time when I didn’t have a healthy love for myself. 

Growing up around a couple of adults that were vain and narcissistic I thought I would become the same if I simply took care of myself. You know…. take some time to enjoy something that I like, put on a little makeup or pamper myself?  
My concern was a lie but it still ruled the way I lived and treated myself!  Being vain and all about myself was not the way I was raised or what was in my heart!   But I still was very concerned about looking that way!  
SO….I put everyone and their needs above myself.  
  • I didn’t see that my emotional wellness mattered. 
  • Taking time for me wasn’t on the list…..that appeared to be selfish. 
  • I really even lost my voice (figuratively of course)…..those that know me KNOW I love to talk!  
  • I literally got stuck in a survival mode mentality and didn’t know how to get unstuck and be the ‘me’ God created me to be.   
Often we are reluctant to promote self-love mostly because we confuse it with selfishness. Since we are humans, we ought to have a healthy love for ourselves; it is from this fount that love flows out to others.” ~ Mason Olds
Later in life I realized and learned how important it was to have that healthy love, which helped me see my true value and my real worth. That value was put in place in me by my Creator. Not because of a vain thought process and thinking more highly of myself. These are two totally different things!
Love starts inside, from within. 
You don’t always have to come last on your list of priorities. If this is you….you DO matter and you should have HOPE that things can be new and different.  
I'd love to share with you a few of the ways that I found my 'voice' and saw my 'worth' for what it truly is! 
Let’s do this together and find some new ways to say “I love me!”
