So knowing that Valentines Day is here got me thinking about Love, of course. This year, I have an incredible man who is planning a surprise night out – and I KNOW I am super blessed. However, there have been plenty of years when I didn’t have anyone to spend the holiday with. Since my ivorce, there have been plenty of nights when I felt lonely and depressed. To be completely transparent, I’ve said the meanest things to myself before. I’ve called myself a loser, a loner, told myself that I wasn’t good enough. I’ve beaten myself up for past mistakes and spent way too long regretting. Maybe you can relate?
The answer of course is self-love, but who the heck knows how to love themselves? I know I didn’t for a long, long time. Finally, I get it. And I want you to get it too. Because when you feel compassion, forgiveness and appreciation for who you are, trust me, it’s better than that heart-shaped chocolate! So, in this week’s PurposeFULL message I discuss how to shift this harmful behavior so that you CAN have the love you desire, a career you’ll love and alive that will light you up!
1. Define “love” to you.
2. Use that definition to create self-love behaviors
3. Get help. If you need support in getting unstuck, moving forward in life and having what you want, then seek a coach, friend or other support. Asking for help is an incredibly beautiful way to show yourself love.
