We've all heard the following statements over and over and over again. . .
That's nice and all, but what no one talks about or teaches you is HOW to love yourself. What does that mean?? I use to think it was spa days, pedicures, and saying "no" -- ya know, putting yourself first. It always sounded over indulgent and selfish. Over the last few years I have been trying (sometimes desperately) to define and then live from a space of loving myself. It has not been easy. There is a reason the word "practice" often follows the word spiritual.
What I think* I have learned:
1. Loving Yourself is more about what you feed your head than anything else. If you really listen to yourself talk is it kind? To you? To others?
*Truth is I am not 100% sure of anything. I tend to try things on and then test them. They either fit or they don't. If they don't I discard. If they ring true after testing I usually enlist a few friends to test them too and report back. Feel free to report back by commenting in this blog post.

Whoa. Concise and right where I am. [A large] Part of why I love to travel is that I get out of routine - including routine ways of thinking. Getting in the NOW is much easier. Travel can be hard and there is no comforting corner to retreat to - facing whatever the upset or discomfort is has to happen. And seeing and experiencing other ways of living and being is priceless. Bringing these insights and new practices home and maintaining them is the next challenge, but one I am grateful to have.

I think you are incredibly wise. I particularly love the reality you put so succinctly, "Truth is not only can you,only you can." So true and so easy to forget.
