Self love involves knowing myself deeply and taking responsibility for the path I walk. In the moments of quiet and stillness I connect with my breath which guides me to a place of safety within, this is the place I call home. No matter what is happening around me I can come to this place and ground. Healing for me requires acknowledgment of the wounds and unhealthy patterns I struggle with, running from conflict, downplaying my needs, feeling unworthy, relying on others approval… I can choose to empower myself by releasing these patterns and creating healthier ones. We all have stories but it is not the stories who define us it is what we do with those stories that does. I do have a choice to change my story. I am the one responsible for my healing. When I feel sad or even happy I turn within coming home I breath in and I am calm, grounded and safe and on my out breath I land with gratitude and love for the experiences and opportunities that arise in my life.The journey towards healing and wholeness is unique to me, this is my self love.
“ Find the love you seek, by first finding the love within yourself. Learn to rest in that place within you. That is your true home…” ~ Sri Ravi Shankar
