Recently, I was asked this question by one of my teachers, Sonia Choquette whilst going through my web assignments. I was not intimidated by it until she asked for a list of 100 reasons why I love myself. Have you ever tried to sit down and write 100 single reasons why you love anything??? It is a challenge - especially when that lens is turned to the self. I can say that I did it. It took me a while, but I did it. At first, it was very easy until around # 25. Then, it started to feel forced....like really, girl?? Are we saying we love our nail beds? Yes, why yes - we are. Around the seventies, I hit my stride again and something started to click.... I began to enjoy listing the things I acknowledged about myself in this way. It began to feel really good giving myself this attention. Then I realized, no one else can do this for me, BUT ME! As one of my spiritual mothers says, "If you can't love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else? Can I get an Amen!" - Love you Mama Ru.
Could this be one of the keys that unlocks the door to the next life level?? Whatever the hell that is. Maybe. Or could it just be the key that unlocks me to me? That feels more right. I'm going with that.
So what's the greatest thing you love about yourself? Me, it's my bounce-back game.
