2013 | Day 12: LOVE YOURSELF



Loving yourself – who you are, with all your flaws and scars, especially when you know your past, can be one of the HARDEST things to do. It is also one of the most NECESSARY in order to live a happy life and lead successfully by example. It might be something you struggle with EVERY day, but at least make the EFFORT to learn to love who you are. TRY to see what OTHERS see when they look at you, think of you, knowing how they talk about you to others in what you have done and inspire them to do.

Look at your reflection - into those eyes that have seen more than you might ever tell, and try to ACCEPT the soul staring back at you. You can see every weakness, every agony, every experience that has brought you to the now. You know every thought, every action, every word, done or undone, that was in your heart during those times. You know who you are and what you are capable of. You see the ugliness in the beauty that everyone else sees, but know that there cannot be light without darkness, purity without evil, heaven without hell.

You are a COMPLEX and intricate being - PERFECT in your imperfections, BEAUTIFUL with your flaws, COMPLETE without anyone else, and the ONLY one of you there is, was, or will be. Love the AMAZING miracle that you are, reveling that you are still ALIVE and able to live life, given every new day as another OPPORTUNITY to help others recognize the POTENTIAL in themselves and inspire them onto GREAT heights.

If you love yourself, the world will know. If you do NOT, they might not know for a time, but eventually they will. No matter what the world sees, thinks, or feels, YOU SHOULD LOVE YOURSELF, for YOU and no one else, to be able to let YOURSELF live life as fully and completely as you try to inspire others to do. Start with YOURSELF and lead by EXAMPLE.
