What Does Self-Love Mean to You?

Found on Facebook. 

What does self-love mean to you?

To me, self-love means self-acceptance & self-compassion.

It means being AWARE of your thoughts, words, actions & reactions.

It means REALIZING that you are human.

It means knowing that you are NOT what happened to you.

It means LETTING GO of the idea of perfection. 

It means being able to FORGIVE yourself. 

It means trusting in yourself & your abilities.

It means being able to recognize your worth and your value. 

It means being grateful for what you DO have. 

It means showing up in your life and being 

FULLY interested. (no half ass anything) 

Self-love means being AUTHENTICALLY and UNAPOLOGETICALLY you.

But know that the journey of self-love is Not an overnight process. 

You must go through pain, darkness, self-doubt, shame, guilt, loneliness, solitude, obscurity & many unpleasant feelings before you discover your own beauty.
Don’t go looking for love outside of yourself. It’s already within you!

Now Not Later

Legend of Neil deGrasse Tyson

If you could live forever, would you?

The urgency of accomplishment… the need to express love now, not later.

These are powerful videos in this excerpt of an interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Larry King. I want to find the entire interview because I love what he saying so much.
