Love. Learning to love yourself if incredibly important for your wellbeing. We’ve all heard this said, but it’s when we embrace it, that life begins to change – for the better.
On Valentines Day, I invite you to write a love letter to yourself. Show some love to yourself. You deserve it. I will share the love letter that I wrote to myself this morning. It’s been on my to do list for months. So it’s time, to put pen to paper, open up my heart and see what comes out.
I love you .
I know I don’t tell you often enough, so today I commit to feeling you every day that I love you. Every day I will look in the mirror and say “I love you Kim.” Every day I will show you that I love you too.
When you need someone to comfort you,
when you need someone to show kindness,
when you need someone to show understanding
when you need someone to cheer you on,
when you need someone to point out all the things that are amazing about you,
I’ll be your someone .
I’m so proud of your courage,
I’m so proud of the way you have persevered in the face of challenge,
I’m so proud of your parenting and the two beautiful kids you have raised, I know it’s not been easy on your own.
I’m so proud of your resilience, how you continue to move forward in the face of adversity,
I’m so proud of of how you have faced the truth head on.
I’m so proud of your willingness to open your heart and share, in order to help others.
I know you feel loved when you are held. Hugs are so important to you.
I know that you feel loved when a gentle hand cups your face.
I will offer more hugs and more compassionate touches to remind you every day that you are loved.
I am you.
And I love you.
With a heart full of love
with a heart willing to open and project love, theres nothing we can’t overcome together.
