Many people throughout my life have told me they loved me. To them I say, “thank you”.
However, there is one person that is more important than all these people, one person I really need to love me… and that person is me.
You see, I know Jude intimately. I know her strengths and weaknesses, I know her joys and her laughters… and I also know her pain and her suffering.
I know that when I accept Jude as she is, all of her, and love her just the way she is, that I am experiencing a true love.
I know when I feel love deep inside of me and allow the love to support me every step of the way, that I will accept Love as the truth of who I am.
With this knowing I often say to people, “do you feel loved?” as an alternative to, “I love you”, because I know that if someone says to me, “I love you”, but I am not feeling much self-love at the time, then it’s difficult to believe them.
So, take a moment to embrace my thoughts. Then, if they resonate for you, practice loving yourself… all of you… the whole package … warts and all… and notice the effect this has on your life.
Love really is the answer.
