A message to all wonderful women:
All this talk of love yourself, honor yourself, care for yourself, but what does that look like?
It looks like you waking up every morning, looking into your eyes in the mirror and being grateful that you can look into your brown eyes in the mirror and see a face of innocence and wonder, life in the making
It looks like gently, handling, cherishing and accepting your body
because you yourself deserve your tenderness,
your heart deserves attention from you,
your heart deserves kindness from you,
you deserve forgiveness from you;
Above all you deserve a second chance from you, or a third, or fourth...
It looks like you thanking God for your face, your smile, your neck;
your breasts are not too small, they’re not too big, they are perfect as they are.
It looks like loving the sway of your waist,
the feel of your thighs, the arch of your feet.
You really are made perfectly, relax into your body.
It looks like loving the curves of your body,
loving the lines on your body,
accepting the wrinkles on your body,
forgiving the flaws on your body;
Cause it’s the one body you’ve got!
Touch yourself and hold yourself as you would your lover,
take your time, discover yourself, learn yourself, affirm yourself.
Bring your broken, marred self back to the potter’s house and let Him mold you again.
It looks like looking back at where you were and looking now at where you are and thanking your angels for carrying you thus far and further.
Have confidence in, believe in, continuously;
your paths, the distance, the course
to your condition, your transitions and your destinations.
All the ways you arrive belong to you and will work to your becoming,
your ultimate self.
Loving yourself to life looks like gratefulness, carefulness, and appreciation for everything;
It looks like feeding yourself with the foods that nourish your body,
lend longevity to your heart,
and drinking the spring water to quench your soul.
It looks like resting your head on a clean bed of soft sheets,
keeping your atmosphere uncluttered and orderly to encourage your inner peace.
Indeed, your love looks like:
resting in the grace working around your life.
Your love looks like letting love and light beam through you.
Your love looks like enduring resilience and everyday surrender.
You love looks like you learning to trust in your divinity.
And finally it sounds like you repeating these words to yourself daily:
I know myself as love. I am love.
I know myself as loving. I am a lover.
I know myself in love. And I am my lover.
That is your call. That is your purpose.
To reach love, teach love and be love only.
erm...It is Well
