You Should Go and Love Yourself – Here’s How

How many times have you heard the phrase self-love or love yourself? For some, it’s easy to say. For others, it is more difficult to practice. The first time someone said that to me, I sat there and scratched my head for a moment. I have always been a giver. I used to give of myself freely and often, never realizing how essential it was to replenish. Then my friend said to me, “You need to fill your cup before you can pour out to others.” That’s when I noticed that I was allowing my cup to become empty on a regular basis. It was draining, to say the least. For that reason, I set out on a mission to pour myself a drink, so to speak.

Here are some tips for self-love:

Make time for yourself. When we are in a relationship, we make time for our loved ones – why make time for yourself? Carve out an hour of your day to spend time alone. Read a book, watch a movie, meditate, or take a bath. Time spent alone is time to rejuvenate. This is time to get to know and fall in love with yourself. Trust me, you’re way more awesome than you ever thought.

Say nice things. The same way we would tell our friends, partners, and family about how wonderful they are, do that for you. Affirmations are a great way to start. I am beautiful. I am smart. I love my body. I am funny. I am magical. Try in front of a mirror. Repeat these affirmations or other amiable truths to yourself on a daily basis.

Buy yourself something. Buying gifts for others has always been a favorite of mine. However, buying gifts for myself is a favorite of mine as well. I would spend all my money on others often. Now, I make sure to buy myself something special as well. I am worth it! You are worth it!

Take yourself on a date/vacation. Sounds weird, right? But it’s so much fun! Take yourself out to eat at your favorite restaurant. Go to the movies alone. Take that trip you’ve always wanted but had no one to go with. The first time may seem awkward, but eventually you will become a pro. It is quite an empowering experience. Your confidence will exude from your pores!

Work on yourself. Eat right. Work-out. Get therapy. Meditate and go within. Heal your inner child. Take care of yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Know yourself inside and out. Need help? Reach out to one of enerki's energy healers.

Never stop treating yourself the way you would treat your lover. Keep in mind, self-love is a journey with no end point. The way we show others love is the same way we show ourselves. Everyone we meet is a reflection of pieces of ourselves and if our cups are full, we are likely to attract those with full cups as well. Then we can engage in a giving and receiving place instead of a constant state of empty. Enjoy your drink!
