More LOVE, please.

More LOVE in 2014.  Uh huh.  Continuing to reflect upon this personal theme and how it motivates me to be the best I can be this coming year, I find myself returning back to the core of what is truly LOVE.   This morning, while sitting here cozied up on the sofa, watching the snow gently tumble down, I'd like to focus on one of the many parts of LOVE and what it can do. 

SELF-LOVE:  The instinct or desire to promote one's own well-being; regard for or love of one's self.  Sense of personal worth and ability that is fundamental to an individual's identity. 

Life is filled with challenges and difficulties which, at times, take us by surprise, knocking us so low we feel as if we'll never recover.  Waking up and facing the day becomes such a chore, we soon shut the windows and doors, refusing to allow LOVE in to transform and heal our heart once again.

Life stinks sometimes.  Yep, it’s true.  It certainly does.  Take it from muwah, a survivor and over-comer of abuse and broken situations which sought to destroy me from who I was meant to be - my destiny!  But you know what?  Despite the hurt.  Despite the pain.  Despite the anger which could have easily destroyed me permanently, I dug down deep in my heart and found what little LOVE I had left and fought to stay alive.  I fought for me!  I wrestled with every "demon," abuse can leave on a child, an individual.  I found that SELF-LOVE once again and won!  Oh yeah! 

I'm not saying it's easy but what I am saying is that each of us have the power and inner-strength to choose to fight, win and LOVE once again.  I deserve it.  YOU deserve it.  So, what are you waiting for?  Get up and LOVE yourself again!  You have a life of LOVE and opportunity waiting to be discovered!  :)
