a note on Self-love
There will always be other internal and external factors that affect your thoughts, actions, and words. We are influenced by irritable people, frustrating experiences, and negative media. We are influenced by stress, sleep deprivation, and traffic. We are influenced by sadness and disappointment. We are influenced by gloomy weather. This list goes on. However, the continual practice of self-love will always steer you in the right direction. It will guide you in the direction you’re pursuing. I promise.
If you’re wondering how you can begin your self-love journey, here are a few suggestions: engage with people who boost your energy, consume uplifting media, prioritize exercise you enjoy, and savor the delicious food on your plate. At the end of the day, self-love shows up in a variety of dimensions, forms, and opportunities. But it’s up to you to actively choose it.
