This week taught me that when Self-Love is difficult we strap on our boots, roll up our sleeves and get to work. We make a list of what is priority to us and find ways to incorporate those things into our days. We don't move against the new rhythm of the season, we wait until we have internalized it's consistency and understand its depths then we move with it.
I'm naturally a "realist", who often borders pessimist. I assume the worst will happen then allow myself to be surprised by the best. This Self-Love Sunday I am focusing on gratitude (again) because I often find myself believing that no ones owes me anything. So, I’m learning to be grateful when I get more than I bargained for

Self-Love is about feeding yourself exactly what you need to grow. Your Self-Love Journey shouldn’t leave you alone and sad so if you find that it is, darling you’re doing it wrong.
Since life ebbs and flows, an opportunity to reflect is what we need to remind us of how far we've come. Unfair expectations and unmet goals can make us feel like failures but progress, whether large or small is still progress and we should be grateful for it.
A huge part of my Self-Love Journey has been intentionally setting time aside to give myself exactly what I need. It doesn't necessarily make life easier but it ensures that I'm better equipped to handle and endure the hard times.
Happy Self-Love Sunday everyone! Don’t forget to be grateful for those in your life. Be present and love deeply. I was blessed to spend the weekend with my wonderful family and it made me think about all I’ve learned from them.
