This Is Gratitude Day 2. Self Love Comes First.
Some of us fixate on perfect bodies. The media mesmerizes us with things to buy and things to make us look better, younger and more perfect. Society tells us joy can be purchased with a new handbag, going to the gym at 4 am or applying a $140 anti-aging cream. However, who sells things to help our soul? No one because we love ourselves and all our imperfections.
Wait, do we?
Well, we should because we are all beautiful works of art. We are stunning, masterful, breathing, self-healing, sculptures that sprint around every day with the power to change things. We have the ability to sculpt the art around us, but that requires loving ourselves. It compels us to find gratitude for ourselves and every single one of us who walk the planet.
For me, that's a hard pill to swallow. I am the first person to pick on myself in the morning and the last person to tell myself I'm not good enough at night. What if 15 times today, we simply repeat "I shine."
Does the day end more joyful? Do we feel gratitude for ourselves?
Until tomorrow friends.
