“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” (Oscar Wilde)
I saw this quote a few years back right at the height of my healing journey when I was turning things around with my health and more. Although I believe in love and marriage, what I have learnt is the most important relationship you have is the one you have with yourself. You will always be with you and you will always have you. Now this a very long time to be with someone. Do you ever think about how you treat yourself or how you approach yourself? Is it with kindness or contempt? It’s something to really think about and gives plenty of food for thought. If we could see ourselves from a different perspective would we change our approach to ourselves. Kindness certainly has to start from within which radiates outwards onto others and the world around us. You can only give what you already have and it’s remembering this. No matter what the question is in your life, love is always the answer. Even more so, self-love is more important than ever in a world that sometimes makes no sense at times. This goes hand in hand with building a good relationship with ourselves – our true selves.
This is my first post of 2016 and I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year. I am excited to be here. There’s nothing I love more than the freshness of a new year that is filled with so much hope and promise. This year feels much lighter than the last and will be a time for many I’m sure where previous efforts will pay off. I smile at the thought of dreams coming alive for all people.
There is no greater joy than seeing another person blossom before your very eyes and I have been lucky to witness this with the people in my life. I have seen miracles and experienced miracles myself. I believe anything is possible especially if we work together towards a better world and future.
“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle,
and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
A life shared is a life worth living. When we reach out our hands to help another we can’t help but light up our own path. It is the way. We create a ripple effect of kindness and happiness that lasts generations. No matter how big or small they may be, it never goes unnoticed by the Universe. It all counts and I am so glad to be part of this in an ever changing world. I hope you are too.
Sending you blessings for the year ahead.
