One of the most asked questions of my clients to me is, “How does one love self?” The first time I heard this I thought to myself, how does one answer that question with one answer? This is the very reason I started The Life Learning Center of Self. Because one does not answer this with one answer.
We have to come to a place where we decide that the way we are living life is just not working for us. Yet there is a very strong knowing that it could work and should be working.
When you come to this place you are beginning to sense you are really desiring a change. The first step is always the hardest step to take. We tell ourselves all kinds of reason’s why that step is so hard. We are asking for a change in our quiet mind, yet when we are given a choice to have that change happen, we seem to run in the opposite direction. I have learned that is because you are looking at the final outcome instead of being just in the moment you are in NOW.
When we imagine living in the final outcome, we cannot see the one tiny step that we should be taking right here in our now.
We must of course know our goal ,but to get to it we have to take the first step. This is where so many people get stuck and never move forward the rest of their lives. This is where we begin our ride on our tricycle but it has one flat wheel so we just continue going over and over the same circle till the rut is so deep we just feel we cannot get out and we just make do.
Yes, we just make do. All because the moment our deepest desires surface we tell ourselves it is too hard to get to that final goal. When all we had to do was take the very first step. We do not know where that is going to take us, so of course we would not take it. Even if it means losing our deepest hearts desire.
Loving yourself is taking that first step. Going forward not knowing a thing other than it is taking you to your hearts desire. Do not look at the final goal, just take the first step.
Have a most wonderful day and into the evening tide.
