I am learning to love myself.
Learning to love ourselves is crucial if we really want to be happy. It’s also the key to learning to love others. When we accept and love ourselves, it becomes more natural and much easier to love others. If we paid close attention to our inner dialogue, we would be horrified at some of the things we say to ourselves. I ask myself sometimes if I would talk to a child the way I talk to myself. Of course I wouldn’t. So why am I speaking to my inner child that way? Then it becomes easier to talk to myself in a more tender and loving way.
The Mind can be our greatest friend or our greatest enemy. When we think well of ourselves, when we respect ourselves, when we are kind to ourselves and have patience with our shortcomings, we are also able to treat others with love and respect. Our small world becomes a better place.
I invite you to explore the inner spaces of the heart with me,where we will find beauty, love, compassion, kindness, creativity, wisdom and true knowledge.
There are two different tools that I use on this journey. One is a positive attitude toward my life and my world. The other is making art that is positive, affirming, and uplifting to my Spirit and to the Spirit of those who engage with my art in its different forms.
I will be sharing my writing and my artwork with you on these pages, and we will see where that takes us. You will be able to interact with me via comments which are enabled on every page. I welcome questions, ideas and sharing from your own life. I look forward to a strong and vibrant relationship. Many thanks for your participation.
