When we grow in self-love, we become more compassionate and peaceful people. This undertaking is not only of benefit to ourselves, but is a gift to the whole world.
Most of us hope to make a difference in the world and we often focus our attention on what we can do in order to make a difference. We often forget that it is in simply being ourselves that we make a difference.
Bringing out the best in ourselves is not about being the best in any particular field. It is about living in the most loving way that we can; it is about feeling at peace with who we are; and it is about believing in our magnificence, and sharing this as a gift to others – with dignity, humility and compassion.
Along the pathway of life, we come up against all sorts of hurdles and struggles, and we seek companions to nourish and assist us. Those companions can appear in various forms – people, books, films, religion – words and images that hold and support us. Ultimately though, it is our own courage that leads us on – our courage to pick ourselves up and continue on. It is the journey of being and becoming.
Living mindfully helps us to live more peacefully. It is about living in the present moment, paying attention and being focused, engaging our whole body, seeing people and situations as they really are.
Often our minds play out all sorts of scenarios or ruminate over past events, which therefore take us away from living fully in the present moment and appreciating what we have.
This little book presents small doses of affirmations and reflections to focus on each day of the year, encouraging you to live more mindfully and grow in self-love. It is the little things that can make such a difference for growing in self-love, for bringing out the best in you, in whatever position you may find yourself.
It is my hope that we may all continue to grow in self-acceptance and self-love. We can only offer to others what we have within ourselves, and indeed, our world is in need of much love.
