Turning A Weakness Into A Strength‏


Loving ourselves is the beginning of all the love we can offer. ~ Caroline Shearer

I read this interesting quote above, of course this is true, how can we love anyone else without loving ourselves first.  I don't mean selfish love of ourselves, I mean being kind and loving towards ourselves. 

We are our own worst critics believing sometimes that we are not good enough, not worth it, not lovable.  We never want our children to think this of themselves, so why do we think it is okay to think so little of ourselves?


It's like the old saying where parents have been known to say "Do as I say, not as I do", which is exactly what our children don't do, they actually do what we do.  How can we expect any less?    

I've been contemplating this quite a bit lately due to my flippy behavior.  How can I ever expect my Valentina to stay as kind and sweet that she is, if I do not learn to control my behavior and find a way to show love. Even in my most difficult times.

If I love myself enough, it will never matter what someone says to me or how they treat me, I truly understand where all that comes from, a place of pain, a place of lack. 

I'm not perfect, far from it but there are some things I excel in, some things that make me special. I need to share those and work on making my weaknesses my strengths too.

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
