Some people say you have three loves.
First love – sweet, romantic, straight out of a romance novel.
The hard love – The passion, the fights, the jigsaw pieces you’re trying to cram together, but they just don’t fit.
The love that lasts – The one that is easy, it feels right and usually, we never saw it coming.
Loving yourself is different, but…the same.
Different because it doesn’t involve another person but, the same, because it uses some of the same principles…and for the purpose of continuity in my example there are three!
The three (self loves)…
A shiny new beginning –
Oh my god, what is this? I never realised it was possible to love myself.
You’re living the self love dream. Everything is new and exciting and you’re wondering how you ever lived any other way! (Remember the romance novel?)
You’re loving your Arse in those jeans, noticing those cute dimples in your cheeks…and even your flaws are Flawesome!
The badass –
You’ve got all this knowledge and enthusiasm and general oomph!
You’re fantastic and you know it! And you are gonna make everyone else realises they are too.
You’re taking down anyone in your way and you make enemies as well as friends. If there was a self love riot…you’d be there dressed head to toe in…well probably in nothing because your body is phenomenal and you are so empowered!
You’re also trying to find how you fit in to this new world and who or what you thought you would be can change from what you originally imagined…go with it (remember the jigsaw pieces?).
Self love settles –
Ahh, this is the ‘love that lasts’.
You’re comfortable and confident in who you are. The positive self talk is now effortless.
You’ve discovered it, you’ve learnt it and now you’re doing it. You didn’t even realise it’s become such a routine part of your life (remember that other love that snuck up on you)
You’re also empowering others but more in a guidance way, when it is asked for, rather than trying to shove your rainbows and sunshine down their throat!
Hope you enjoyed my comeback post ❤️
