Women are socialized to believe we must give and give, putting everyone’s needs above our own. those of us who take time for ourselves often get labeled as selfish. Loving yourself first is not selfish. It is mandatory. You cannot give what you do not have.
Interestingly, a good financial adviser will tell you to pay yourself first before tending to your bills. Yet that advice fails to apply to nourishing your Spirit–especially if you are female.
When I live in the space of loving myself first my love flows out automatically to all–effortlessly. The whole world looks so fantastic and I easily see each person for the truth of who they are – Divine Spirits in human suits.
When I live in that space I feel my life flowing in a state of bliss. The work part becomes – how do I stay there? Two things: 1 live in the NOW; 2. Focus on what you want.
