In order to experience love from others we need to experience and express love for ourselves first. Part of how we can express love for ourselves, is to share our love with others so you don't have to wait to love others, you can deepen your self-love through healthy outward expressions of love for others. To get started thinking about how you want love to show up and be expressed in your life, consider the following questions:

1. What are the ways that you express your love for yourself? How do you talk to and about yourself to yourself and others? In what ways do you pamper and honor your physical well-being? In what ways do you express and honor your emotional well-being? What is one thing you could do today that would make you feel deeply loved by yourself?

2. What are the ways that you express your love for others? Who do you love? Who loves you? What words do you use to express your love? What do you need from your loved ones to make you feel truly loved? Do they know this? If not, how can you let them know how to let you know that they love you? What activities do you do with these people that make you feel most loved? When was the last time you engaged in these activities? What can you do today to let your loved ones know you love them? What can you do today that will make you feel loved?

If you find you do not have as much love in your life as you want, don't worry. Spend some time every day thinking about how much love you DO want in your life, what it will feel like to have all of that love, why you want all of that love, who you will be and how you will feel once you have all of that love in your life. Just spend some time contemplating these things. As you ponder what you want and how you want to feel, you will be inspired with the actions to take to make it happen. There is an unlimited supply of love in the world and there is more than enough for each and every one of you.
