What Does Self Love Mean?

Today is day 12 of the 31 Day Self-Love Writing Challenge hosted by Michelle and Emelina Minero. This is one of the most important questions to answer for me because it leads to recognition of what I need most for my present and my future.

Here is my answer.

Self love means placing self-care above negative thoughts, unhealthy cravings and easy fixes.

It means using gentle self-talk when I feel lost, sad or can’t appreciate “where I am and what I have”.

Self  love is putting forth effort to care for myself daily. It is holding myself accountable to my actions for the reaction to my choices.

Self love invoLves compassion, forgiveness, release of regrets, discipline, focus, belief in myself. It means following MY dreams and living in a way that is HEALTHY for my individual needs. Self love is unconditional. I need self-love ever moment of every day.

Pay Attention: Is Your Inner Saboteur Causing Trouble?

The other day I read a very useful post about the Saboteur Archetype from Candess Campbell. She talks about the ways we unconsciously sabotage our lives with little decisions, through ignoring our intuition, and most popularly with fear.

I’m learning (and practicing) to stop my inner saboteur with my intuition and courage. There’s no way I could commit to traveling across the country on my budget without lots of courage. Every time I follow my intuition instead of caving into negative thoughts or easy fixes I feel so much better. Whether it’s choosing healthier food, doing work that improves my skills, or taking a wild leap to follow my dreams. Since I’ve become conscious of my thoughts those moments really stand out for me and stick with me. Read her post at Candesscampbell.wordpress.com/2014/09/12/saboteur-archetype
