Fall in love with taking care of yourself.
Fall in love with the path of deep healing.
Fall in love with becoming the best version of yourself but with patience,
with compassion and respect to your own journey.
- Sylvester McNutt
There are always messages around you which universe is constantly sending, we have to be open to receive it. Every morning after my daily routine, I always read inspirational quotes as I feel I get message to follow for rest of my day.
Today I came up this beautiful quote by Sylvester McNutt, and it made complete sense to me. Many of us are constantly be taking care of others. We are programmed to put everyone and everything else first – our spouse, the kids, the house, the dog or our career.
By the end of the day we are exhausted, and there is no time or energy left for self-care or self-love. We say we have no time to concentrate on ourselves or we are too busy to even think that this is even important. It’s taken me so many years to understand that falling in love with yourself is the first priority and when I started loving myself, everything else just fell in place.
When we constantly focus on what we do not have, we start carrying extra weight on our shoulders. We stay stuck in the energy of deficiency rather than creation, manifestation and abundance. It blocks progressing forward and we get distracted from the path of healing ourselves. Rather then judging and criticizing ourselves, accept everything about life, be present in the moment. Today, right now you are wonderful. Feeling good in the present moment creates the energy to change for the better.
“We are like magnets: like attracts like. You become and attract what you think. Embrace and love all the aspects of yourself. We often concentrate on the upper layer of life which is easy to be seen and heal and we always ignore the unseen layer that is the hidden deep down in our subconscious mind. Embrace and love all the repressed parts of yourself even those you may be scared of, the inner child of you who needs light and healing.
By forgiving yourself and others we heal ourselves. Self-healing is a continuous process which takes time and patience. Fall madly and deeply in love with yourself during this process and practice to forgive, love and show up for yourself daily over and over again.
Surrender and trust the divine planning of your healing path. There are thousands of reasons to give up and give in. There are infinite scenarios in which we don’t do or finish something. Instead, follow it to completion. If we have a sense of purpose and meaning in what we do, if we find it fulfilling, it does not matter what it ultimately leads to. What matters is that we refuse to give up.
Practice gratitude and humility. There’s always a more productive way to talk about criticism for ourselves and for others. If we always remember to stay thankful and humble, it will make our path easier. Focus on giving and taking positivity, and reap the benefits of it which are untold and innumerable. There is a very clear difference between self-love or being selfish. Taking care of ourselves and putting our needs first will actually make us better people, because when we are happy inside, we transmit that happiness on the outside and by default we make other people happy too.
Nurture your most important relationship, the one we share with ourselves! Self-love is imperative to looking and feeling like the best version of yourself. Always take care of yourself first before taking care of others. Ultimately, though we spend the most time of our life with ourselves.
Respect your journey of your life. We are born for the reason and our own lessons to be learned during this lifetime. It was our choice, our decision, and just as we respect the ground we step on, that ground will respect our feet. Always do what’s best to conserve and keep your journey, and it will do the same for you. The universe has given everyone equal abundance according to our own karma. No one is behind or forward. Everyone is there where they have to be. Sometimes the same tasks have to be repeated until we learn our life lesson, it’s part of our journey. Even though we are tired, even though certain tasks are repeated so often, be patient. Make your path a mirror of yourself. We have our own soul to listen to. Love your path. Without this, nothing makes any sense.
Everyone has their own path. Walk yours with integrity and wish others peace on their journey.
When your paths merge, rejoice for their presence in your life.
When the paths are separate, return to the wholeness of yourself,
Give thanks for the footprints left on your soul, and embrace the time to journey on your own.

I practice meditation, which has been helping me quiet my mind and center myself. I find that I practice self-love the most through giving myself and my time to my loved ones. I feel my best when I am gentle with myself, then I am able to give myself more fully to those who need my love the most. I became mindful and started to act on what I need rather that what I wanted. I started practicing good self-care like good nutrition, exercise, yoga, proper sleep, intimacy and healthy social interactions. I started setting boundaries and protecting myself by saying NO, to things which were not serving me or helping me. When I became mindful, I started forgiving myself and others. Then the right people and circumstances that supported me started getting attracted towards me.
You are a piece of GOD, you are a living, breathing creation that emanated from the universal mind of all creating source. You and God are the same thing. A wonderful gift to this planet earth is YOU!!
