“We’re all one step closer to dying, but are we even living?”
A morbid yet worryingly impactful quote from today’s morning with Headspace (it wasn’t all this deep don’t worry!). It seems that while we go around each day rushing from one task to another, many of us forget to acknowledge or appreciate where we are. From the point in our lives that we have reached, to more simple things like our surroundings; we are there, but we very rarely take that in. We are in the present, yet are we aware of it?
I’ve recently been thinking a lot about self love and sadly, feel that this term isn’t used as much as it should be. When was the last time you heard somebody say, ‘She/he has a lot of self-love’? Instead you’re more likely to have heard, ‘Oh doesn’t she/he just love her/himself.’ Right? Self love is quite often viewed as something negative. However, there’s a difference between loving ones self and arrogance. This post is not about the latter.
For me, self love is the building block for leading a happy life. It’s at the core of everything that we do, from our thoughts, to our actions and even down to the people that we choose to spend our time with.
