Have you hugged yourself today? Take a moment this morning and get closer to yourself. Look into a mirror and maybe think about these words by Dr. Piyal Walpola.
“The most important person is the one in front of you. The most important thing to do is to care. If this is true, care for yourself first. Love yourself first. Appreciate yourself first. Value your own human life. Then you are not alone. Stop expecting too much from you. Say this is good enough. I am happy to be here. I am kind to myself. I not looking for anything more.”
In a recent article by Marcus Julian Felicetti called 10 Reasons Why We Need 8 Hugs A Day, he says that hugs boosts self-esteem. “From the time we’re born our family’s touch shows us that we’re loved and special. The associations of self-worth and tactile sensations from our early years are still imbedded in our nervous system as adults. The cuddles we received from our Mom and Dad while growing up remain imprinted at a cellular level, and hugs remind us at a somatic level of that. Hugs, therefore, connect us to our ability to self love.”
Love is flowing through you right now without any effort on your part. No need to disguise yourself to get it because you already have it. Look in the mirror and accept yourself without condition. Stop jumping through hoops to feel good. The Universe will thank you in so many wonderful ways! You might even get an unexpected hug. 🙂
