Self Love Comes Before All Else
"You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection." ~Buddha

So many women struggle with the concept of self-love. Women by nature are nurturers, caretakers. Many of us believe that it is our duty to give and give, even beyond the point where it zaps our sanity and our strength. We should all spread love, hope, and charity. That is a beautiful concept and guide for living. But we must remember that we can only share what we possess. Self-love comes before everything else. It makes us effective in every aspect of our lives. We have nothing of value to give if we don't first love ourselves.

Treat yourself kindly and lovingly, value the treasure that you are, and strive to reach your full potential.
