Never stop loving yourself
You know that voice inside, that voice that tells you to do something you don’t want to do? and you know it’s right? that’s your heart. That is the universe speaking through you. and then there’s the other voice, the voice of reason, logic and practicality; that tells you not to be different, not to rock the boat, not to… express yourself. Loving yourself doesn’t mean lollypops, rainbows and balloons all the time. It means doing the work that the universe asks of you and in these times, it asks a lot.
To be healthy, vibrant, full of life, is to love yourself and risk taking action where the results are unclear. We can negotiate, temperate and pace ourselves, but we can only deny that voice for so long before thedenial begins to deaden our senses, our perception and our passion. Never stop loving yourself, never stop listening to the voice that asks you to risk… that makes you nervous inside.
I am convinced that most people with persistent anxiety and stress have built structures of reason and logic around not listening to that voice of the heart. All of us wish sometimes that voice would go away, even the brightest stars can fall without integrity i.e. some recent major sports stars. This is after all, real life and the people who are making it happen, who are the engines of this world, listen to that voice no matter what. You don’t even have to be full-on about it, you don’t have to take it to an extreme, trust yourself, honor yourself, never stop loving yourself. Together. Onward!
