When I began to Love Myself



When I began to love myself I found out that anguish and suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. 
Today I call it "authenticity."

When I began to love myself I understood how much it can hurt to force your own will, when the time is not right. I do. 
Today I call it "Recognition".

When I began to love myself I stopped to seek a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounds me is what helps me grow.
Today I call it "Maturity".

When I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I can be in the right place at the right time, and everything happens in God’s time, so I can be calm. 
Today I call it "self-confidence".

   When I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time and projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and things that gives my heart a happy mood. I do it my own way and at my own pace.
Today I call it "simplicity."

When I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is bad for me - food, people, things, situations. All that pulled me down and away from Him. At first People called it selfishness. 
Today I call it "selflessness".

When I began to love myself, I stopped trying to always be right, and ever since then, I was wrong less. 
Today I call it "modesty".

When I began to love myself I stopped living in the past and worrying about the future. Today I live in each moment. Now I live day after day,
Today I call it "Implementation".

When I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can be frustrating, and that I can get sick from it. But when I combined it with God’s own mind, it became a valuable ally.
Today I call this "Wisdom of the heart."

When I began to love myself I recognized that I no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or all sorts of problems. Even stars collide, and from their collision new worlds are born. 
Today I call this "Living."
