Self love Journey (PART 1) - 2017

Since our childhood, we have been told how important self-love is. We have been told that before anyone loves you or love someone you must first have a relationship with yourself. It has been said that the more we do things that feed our soul, the more we become connected to our soul. This year(2017) I have decided to go on self-love journey, I will be posting all the things that I enjoy doing and that make me connected to my soul. I believe that self - love is what you do by yourself for ourselves.
The first thing I enjoy doing is putting an outfit together, whether its a casual or formal look, whether it's for vacation or just going shopping or church. Planning an outfit is exciting.

Self love journey (PART 2) - Have a Vision For Your life

Have a vision for your life.
What you see is more important than what other people see.
Having a vision is like planning your life the way you want it to be.  Give yourself enough time to write down your vision, be clear about what you want. There is nothing I enjoy the most than writing down my goals on the different pages of papers and keep them in the envelope, it could be a short term or a long term goals, after a month or two  I revisit my goals to check if I am still on track. Knowing what you want, what you are living for is the best thing you could do for yourself, it makes you focus more on your life, you do not worry about what other people are doing because you are too busy with your life. The book by  Rhonda Byrne The Secret says "You must sit down and write it out on a piece of paper." it also continue saying "Our job as a human is to hold on to the thoughts of what we want, make it absolutely clear in our mind what we want ...we become what we think the most..". Sean Covey, the author of the book called the seven habits of effective teen says that" All things are created twice, first mentally, second physically". There are so many things going on around us, confusion that sometimes you  ask yourself, why am I here on earth? unfortunately, no one can answer that question for you, you must figure it out yourself, it's your job, it's your responsibility.

Self Love Journey PART (3) - Brand yourself , Work on yourself.

I have realized that self-love is also about personal branding, working on something that you love and passionate about. It could be a talent, education or anything you are passionate of. I believe in education. I am one of those people who believe that education is key to success. I grew up in a poor family in rural areas. I lost my mother when I was only seven years old. I had nothing but dreams, I had big dreams, and I refused to focus on what was happening at that time. Dreaming big was an escape for me. I lived in the future. Education for me is everything, I have been to places I never thought I would go to, I have done things that I never thought I would do, I met people I never thought I would meet, I can take care of myself and my family because of education. I have worked so hard to brand myself, now I am holding a degree in Internal Auditing and I am currently doing my Master degree in Internal Auditing. Branding yourself is the best thing you could do for yourself, no one else can do it for you, and it’s your job, your responsibility. Love yourself, Brand yourself.

Self love (PART 5) - Surround Yourself With Love #Choose Love.

Self-love is about choosing love in any situation and being comfortable with the real you. Choosing love is choosing to love yourself first before anyone else and to set standard for anyone who claim to love you. Choosing love is to learn to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations. Choosing love is choosing people, things that makes you feel comfortable. Even choosing clothes that makes you feel comfortable is still self-love because once you feel comfortable you begin to love yourself.

            "Love is about being comfortable"

Being surrounded by people who expect you to be something you are not or who constantly try to bring you down, makes you hate yourself and life. But once you start looking at your life and people who have been with you through thick and thin, you begin to see your life as a blessing and begin to love yourself and your life more than anything. Choose people who chose you over anything. Appreciate people who appreciate you. What good it is to have beautiful things but you cannot see and appreciate them? Love is choosing love. Love is appreciating Love. Surround yourself with love. Being surrounded by people who love and appreciate your existence is healing.
