Have you ever thought of a life filled with love, laughter, and precious sequins all over your body but felt totally clueless as to how to make that happen? You aren’t alone.
If you are a lover of yourself, you have probably thought about self love for awhile but have never really taken the plunge to find out just what it is that you truly have. If you are a mother who loves her children and have spent years trying to give them the best possible start in life, but still feel that your love is not what it should be, do you feel like there is something missing? You need radical self love.
First of all, what is self? It’s not just about being yourself. It’s about making sure that every aspect of your life is exactly how you want it to be. When I was a little girl I loved to have candy. However, I still liked to pretend that my mother was standing right beside me.
When you love someone you are trying to live up to their expectations, so don’t fall into the trap of giving the impression that your sweet dreams come true. The secret is to know that your dreams are already yours.
Practice Radical Self Love
The second secret is to practice radical self love. You might think that practicing radical self love means that you will need to change all aspects of your life including your work, your school, your family and friends, your love life and your hobbies, but that is just not true. You just have to change how you view the world.
The third secret is to begin to change how you think. Instead of viewing life as a series of daily events that must be attended, you can focus more on the bigger picture, which is your overall purpose. When you begin to look at life in this way, you will see that no matter what happens, the purpose is always the same.
Another secret of radical self love is to learn how to be kind to others. Instead of viewing your world through the eyes of anger or judgment, you must learn how to see with the eyes of gratitude. If you focus only on the joy of others, you are sure to experience an enormous sense of compassion, even when there are no tears on the surface.
Self-love doesn’t just have to be about your personal life. The truth is that every aspect of life can become a part of you and will enrich your lives in a profound way.
Your relationship with others can be a tremendous gift, which helps everyone around you. People often have a hard time seeing that their relationships are part of the story of their lives, and that it is part of their purpose in life. In fact, many people who do not know the full story of themselves often feel overwhelmed by others. However, if we look at ourselves from another’s point of view, it becomes clear that we are always one story, and one story only.
Even if there are beautiful things going on, we have only to look around to see how far we have come. to realize that our greatest beauty is found in our own hearts.
Radical self-love is a journey that takes us beyond our personal beliefs, ideas and desires. we realize that we can choose happiness in any circumstance. and we realize that true happiness comes from the satisfaction of our inner desires.
So give your own heart a huge hug, and then share it with others. Start to live each day as though your best friend has been waiting for you to reach it. Then you will find that life does indeed mean life.
