Freedom Friday – 10.20.17

Freedom-Friday-Lauryn-Hill-Give

In many ways, society has bought into the notion that our focus is to acquire people, things, ideas, places, etc. None of these by themselves bring true, everlasting, abundant joy, peace, or strength. What offers this and so much more, is giving – of self, of time, wisdom, love, comfort, encouragement, knowledge, experiences, healing, etc. One of the reasons I started my blog was to give the lessons I have learned about myself and life, in an effort to connect with, help and inspire healing for and in others. As I become free, whole, confident myself, my goal is for others to be free, whole and confident. Nothing I receive is for me alone, it’s always, also for the benefit of those around me. So as long as I receive, so will you. My purpose is to serve and love my people, the world, with everything that I have and will have. Whether it’s money, quality time, posting my thoughts, blogging about my pain, it is to build, edify, empower. It is better to give than receive. Never forget it. Look for ways to give of yourself to others. It can be as simple as a smile and “hello”!

What Loving Yourself Requires

The more I learn to love myself, the more I truly grasp what it means.

I used to think that loving who I am meant that I had to be perfect. I used to think that loving who I am was tied to who and how many people loved me.

I used to think that loving what I look like is defined by others’ opinions of me. I used to think that loving what I looked like had to be what the world thought was worthy of being beautiful. Continue reading
