Happy Valentine’s Day to Me!

To My True Self! Too often I forget about me. I forget that I’m awesome! That I’m smart! That I’m strong! That I’m lovable!

The messages I have received over the years have been varied and they continue to vary. But that’s ok, because I know how awesome I am, whether anyone else does or not.

Luckily for me, I have plenty of people in my life that agree with me. Part of me hesitates to say things like that still.  Its not sure it believes those things and its not sure its ok to think them, let alone say them out loud… I mean, doesn’t that make me arrogant? Others would say it does.

But why? Why does understanding and knowing exactly who and what we are make me arrogant? Isn’t it important that I love myself first and foremost? I think it is! I mean, how else am I supposed to know when someone else does? Part of that means believing those things about me. Knowing somewhere deep… at my center… from My True Self that I am lovable because I exist.

I deserve to be loved and held in high regard just because . I mean, I believe this about others. Its part of why I do the work that I do. And why I have spent my life giving to others… often at my own expense. That is My True Self’s nature, to give and to love…. every day of this life, not just on Valentine’s Day, although there is nothing wrong with a reminder to love who we are!
