Mindfulness Monday – Self Love

“The first thing is to love yourself.
You cannot progress by self doubt and self hatred.
You can only progress by self love.”

~ Dipa Ma

 

“You can search throughout the entire universe
for someone who is more deserving
of your love and affection than you are yourself,
and that person is not to be found anywhere.
You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe,
deserve your love and affection”

~Buddha

  1. Reblogged this on Lorraine's frilly freudian slip and commented:

    Self-love, so essential, yet for me, so hard to achieve. I try; some times, I get as far as self-like, and a touch of self-forgetfulness. I am aware of needing self-love to move forward. I will keep trying.
    Have you achieved self-love? Please talk to me about it and the process to achieve. Wise words chosen by a wise woman. Thanks Wendy for Mindfulness Monday posts.

  2. I love myself a lot. <== funny how that sounds arrogant coming from a grown woman. But I do! (Smiling as I write this.) Culture gives us mixed messages about self-love. But thank God for writers like you Wendy! You remind us that it’s A-ok to cherish one another +’ourselves equally. 💃♥️
