Today’s Affirmation: ” The more I LOVE myself, the more LOVE I can give to others.”
I really like this LOVE affirmation, because, it’s a great reminder to NOT neglect ourselves in the process when we give to others. Most of us have the tendency to over give, over commit or have a hard time saying “no”. Though, our act can be seen as “noble” or “humble”, it can come with a cost. Usually, at the expense at the expense of emotional, physical, and mental health. This is what called a burn out, it hard to give a person something that you do have for yourself. This would be equivalent to a car running on empty. It’s functioning, yet, the gas tank (LOVE tank) is running low. If we are constantly operating in this state, are we really present and giving our best to ourselves and others?
In order to be our best and serve in our highest capacity. We have to make sure that we are LOVING ourselves; nurturing our soul, mind, and body; and honoring quiet times with ourselves. Then you will be re-energized, overflowing with LOVE, and others can experience and enjoy the full (whole) YOU!
Feel free to come up with your own LOVE affirmations or interchange words that works best for you.
