Is this my new year resolution? Not really – because I love myself. But I hope to remind my still very young daughter to always love yourself. What brought about this topic? Well, I saw a girlfriend whom is strong, capable & good but she keeps forgetting to love herself. While I keep reminding her to, it does not look like she can change this. And I wonder if it is because it has become a habit.
Loving yourself does not mean that one is selfish – in fact it is the exact opposite.
I love my family, so I take care of my health so I do not burden them with any sickness that is caused bad food habits or lifestyle.
I love the job that pays me money, so I take care of the work I do so that the job continues to finance my lifestyle.
I love an environment that foster curiosity, so I ensure I take care of my own personal development to continue to foster that.
I love new experiences with my loved ones, so I travel to new places with them to create memories.
So my darling Relm, do love yourself more, because only through that you can love the people you love properly.
