Are you looking for love in all the wrong places? Do you find it frustrating because you are always giving love out but rarely on the receiving end of good loving? Why is there so much concern, striving and worry surrounding love? Everybody needs it! Love is a basic human need. However, most people will never receive the kind of love they long for because they are always looking outside themselves. Instead of being at the effect of whether or not you have a significant other or are unfulfilled by the outcome of how others choose to love you, be your own best lover! Too many base their self-worth and happiness on how love shows up on the external plane. Did you forget there is a Goddess/God within you and royal blood runs through your veins? Most of us have forgotten who we are because we have been too busy being who we have been told to be or who we think we should be. When you take time to remember and reacquaint yourself with your true essence, you open loves flood gates. Spend undistracted time alone and rediscover who you were before life started molding into a false clone of yourself. What if you loved on yourself instead of letting another lack luster day of love get you down? Go within to see how you can best love on yourself. Find out what you really like and what brings you joy. Then, think of something special you could plan to buy or do for yourself for this week. Write yourself a love note, fill it with gratitude for all aspects of you. Schedule a massage, pedicure or have flowers sent to your work. Go do that thing that brings you joy! In order to receive real authentic love we must give it to ourselves first. We teach people how to treat us and it starts with how we treat ourselves, which is a reflection of our self-worth. When you wake up in the morning look in the mirror and tell yourself “I love you. You are beautiful and wonderfully made!” When love blossoms within, an opening is created to attract a companion who will love us the way we were meant to be loved. One where you don’t have to settle, compromise your truth or be taken for granted. Real lasting love is out there but can’t be found until we find it within first.
