There is something very special about understanding or beginning to understand the value of self love.
Just like any new concept or object brought to awareness, you look for (unconsciously and consciously) opportunities to acknowledge its presence around you. When you get a new car, "all of a sudden" you see that car everywhere. When you learn about the objectification of women in the media, you see it EVERYWHERE!
When you begin exploring areas in which you can love yourself better, deeper, and stronger, you are more aware of the opportunities that you can take to take care of and honor yourself. I love the concept of recognition. I believe its very important because people should be acknowledged, not for validation, but to build one another up.
In todays social media land, recognition can be so important, its what creates social media celebs. Its what boost real life introvert's self esteem. Its also what creates habits of comparison and obsession with others. Today is Wednesday, and Wednesday is known as Woman Crush Wednesday aka "wcw". Its a collective opportunity for folks to acknowledge women they admire, think are beautiful, may be infatuated or in love with.
Today, I was thinking. I RARELY see people crush on themselves...Why is that?
Yes its #wcw but instead of checking out who others admire, choosing a woman to crush on, or wondering why no one chose you, consider acknowledging, honoring, and admiring yourself.
No one knows your story like you. You are here. You are vibrant. You are purpose filled. That is a reason to love yourself. That is a reason to crush on yourself. You are your own kind of beautiful and that beauty runs deep. Give yourself the love and recognition you would want someone to give you.
You deserve to praise yourself. Its not about being conceited. It's about pride in your light, your effort, your strength, and your dedication to living. Love on yourself. I'm so sure you don't do enough of it. It's ok to say, I admire myself. I am proud of myself.

Happy Monday BEautiful BEings!
Aren't you excited not only because its Monday, but because its another day for you to give back and impact the world in some way???! Yayy!
It feels horrible to positively impact someone's life...said no one ever!
Impact and purpose are 2 reasons why we can be grateful everyday we wake up, yes even on a Monday which the average working adult dreads. No matter where you work, what you do, who you're around, there is purposeful energy within your body and even when you feel crappy, stepping in your purpose even rejuvenates you!
Some say, well, I don't even know my purpose. Well, "discovering it" is a lot simpler than you may think. There's something you know that others don't. Share that knowledge ot experience. There's something you do well that others don't. Share that talent. There's a natural gift that you possess, that many people have complimented you on: your smile, your beauty, your hugs, your ability to listen, your style, your ability to make someone feel special. Share that. There's a way that you love and someone needs that.
Our life's purpose is based in sharing, teaching, healing and ultimately loving. Some people share thru talents like creative arts, speaking, or businesses that offer a product or service . Some teach as intentional instructors or coaches of some kind. Some heal through counseling, spiritual advisory, friendships, affirmations, support and other avenues. But purpose is based in service and love.
Let purpose lead you. Not money, greed or power. Your reward will come according to your purpose.
I find when I focus on myself and what I want, life not only seems bland but I feel like my connection to the abundance of the universe is cut off. When Im doing any task, small or big, that's attached to my purpose, I feel alive, empowered, and connected to overflow and abundance.
What are you going to be intentional about doing today? Giving a compliment? Working on a dream project, event, or business? Smiling at someone? Maybe sharing a story of a difficult time you overcame?
Do at least 1 purpose driven activity today and everyday and I promise your life will change; as your mood and Outlook change, I want you to email me and let me know!
