I have had an amazing past couple of weeks because I had one of my longest and truest friends visiting from the UK and during her time here she reminded me of how it is so important to love yourself first before loving anyone else. Her ultimate goal on this trip was to relax and there was nothing I could say to convince her otherwise, because if whatever the activity I was proposing did not result in relaxing, she quickly turned down the offer. It seemed annoying at first, but then I realized that she knew what her body, soul and mind needed at the time and she made sure she catered to that because it was that important to her. That begs the question, how many times have we actually focused on what we needed than what the world needed from us? We have heard a lot about how important it is to love ourselves, but do we truly love ourselves enough to do what makes us happy? I am not here to give a philosophical meaning to it, but I can challenge you to do one thing this week that truly makes you happy instead of catering to everyone but you. Take that vacation or check one thing of your bucket list. Do whatever makes you smile and by doing that you are one step to loving yourself.
