“Wouldn’t it be powerful
if you fell in love with yourself so deeply that
you would do just about anything
if you knew it would make you happy?
This is precisely how much life loves you and
wants you to nurture yourself.
The deeper you love yourself,
the more the universe will affirm your worth.
Then you can enjoy a lifelong love affair
that brings you the richest fulfillment from inside out.”
~ Alan Cohen
The month of March is a time of transition, letting go of winter and transitioning into the season of spring. When the sun shines brighter and warmer we lean in and breathe deep. When the rain falls to cleanse the earth and prepare for rebirth we too have an instinct to peel back some of our winter layers and cleanse from the inside out. This beautiful ritual is a benevolent expression of self-love.
The ability to radically love thyself is not narcissistic! Rather it is the greatest act of compassion we can show ourselves so that we can show up for our partners, children, family and friends... and love them fully.
This month I encourage you to take the time to take care of yourself.
