Today, I’m grateful for feeling loved.

I haven’t always felt loved. Especially when the one person who loved me more than anyone else left this world in 1998.

Shout out to my amazing husband and children for making sure I feel loved no matter what mistakes I make, losses I have daily. They love the imperfect me more than I do.

I pray daily that every person I cross paths with know that they are loved. I know the feeling of not being loved and never want anyone to feel it.

If you’re reading this, know I love you and so does God love you.

Now I’m working on loving all of me especially the imperfect me.

Why do we have a hard time loving our imperfect self?

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.” ~Lucille Ball

Self-love isn’t something that happens overnight. It’s ugly, it’s crying yourself to sleep some nights, it’s accepting some of the trauma from your past, but it’s worth it. You are the only version of yourself that you have. You don’t need to sacrifice who you are in the present moment to fulfill an idea of who you should be. Everything you need to be, you already are.
