A note on self love

Nessa’s Notes

On Self-love (the bullet point)

The mind is only as clear as the emotions are clear.

After you have decided (which requires a clear mind) that you are ready to love yourself better. You are starting the change that that will result in having a happier life. First, you have to learn what love is. In order to practice it on self, you have to know all the components of self-love.

Love is:

  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Acceptance
  • Honest
  • Hope
  • Respect
  • Protects
  • Trust
  • Endures
  • Charity
  • Forgiveness

Self-love is love applied to self. Take the definition, list actionable ways to express each and do them to and for yourself. It is not going to be easy. It might even be hard at first. And after you think you’ve gotten the hang of it, it’ll challenge you. Lifestyle changes do that.

   example: Patience; the act of giving time without complaint

                            Give your Self 60 seconds to say “I love you” eyes to eyes in the mirror every day. Give Self time to remember to do it. Give Self time to get the courage up to do it. Give your Self time to do it and not feel weird. Give your Self time to say it and believe it. Give your Self time.

I have always had a very vivid imagination. Since childhood I have been in tune with my feelings. As a wife and mother of 2 (and 3 fur babies), I am in constant practice of communicating and teaching through story telling. I have taught community arts and crafts classes. My company, WhatTheSoulSays ™ held monthly programs at libraries, community centers, and senior living communities. You may find yourself taking time to rethink your life; how you treat yourself and how you allow others to treat you, I hope to ignite inspiration and to spark a soul. I hope to restore the power of love in the world with my stories.
