I almost hate to say it because it may sound cliche. You may think it too simplified or watered down to actually cause any amount of BIG change. You may roll your eyes, but I have to say that WITHOUT this we cannot make lasting change and create a more loving world..
So I'll let the one and only Solange Knowles say it:
"Self-love is really a foundation for everything, and however you practice or express that is so, so important.”
You are not alone. We're all trying to figure out how to love more instead of lose hope. With every passing day there's more evidence that the power of love is so needed right now.
As I wrote last week, we're going to get into some actual steps on HOW to make lasting change from the inside out.
We're going to use the I Stand For Love manifesto as our guide, step by step until August 8th (#IStandForLoveDay).
We're going in reverse so this week is step 8. LOVE YOUR SELF
Print it out or make it your screen saver. It can help remind you (or your co-workers or your kiddos) that YOUR LOVE changes the world.
Also, here's a pdf for you that spells out the "what, why and how" of Self Love.
Because without having first slain our inner demons and come out the other side with love and respect for our personal journey, we really have a shallow understanding of the power of love itself.
Let's be clear, to love yourself isn’t to have a feeling of superiority or to constantly be focused on your specialness. To truly love yourself is to understand at your core that you are god in human form just like every other being on the planet. You are no better, but you are most certainly no worse than anyone else.
YOU are YOU. And you are most worthy of love.

There's so much more we can do when we have a foundation of love on the inside. It's a daily practice of freeing ourselves from the lies of 'not-enough-ness', the inner critics, the down right mean voices in our heads. Loving the crap out of yourself is a revolutionary act.
When we work to heal the inner wounds, we heal the wounds of the world, as well.
Your presence is requested in the Love Revolution, my friend, and I'm with you every step of the way!
