“Self-love is the source of all other loves.” -Pierre Corneille
And so it is … I accept and realize that to become enlightened and enrich my own life I must stop searching, trying so hard, and waiting for some “thing” to happen. I must be that which I seek and that which I seek lies within me. On October 15, 2012 I embarked on a Journey of Life. For at least the next year, I plan to dedicate myself to a different 30 Day Journey of Life at the beginning of every new 30 days.
The first 30 Day Journey of Life was Giving. The second 30 Day Journey was Non-Judgment. The third 30 Day Journey of Life was Silence. This month’s 30 Day Journey of Life is Self-Love.
I got a little behind so this 30 Days runs from January 26, 2012 through February 26, 2012. During this 30 days my plan was to treat myself kindly with my thoughts. And, also to take more time to not DO so that I can accomplish more. And, lastly to be conscious of what I eat and drink during this period.
Since I’m posting this so late, I can say that I didn’t do such a good job with this 30 Day Journey of Self-Love. Up until yesterday morning, February 20, 2013, that is. It took me that long to move through and accept a few things. I reached out to a friend yesterday morning, I started my day with 20 minutes of meditation on a specific prayer/mantra, ended my day with another 20 minutes of meditation and began my day today the same way. During this entire 30 days I have cut down on sugar intake and alcohol consumption. I actually don’t imbibe that much. I just wanted to do this for myself. Why? Because I Can! In addition, I increased the amount/length of my daily walk.
I feel wonderful and am truly INspired y’all!
Onward! Next 30 Day Journey of Life begins on February 27, 2013 … The day after my birthday!
