Let us love thyself. Sometimes loving yourself may be hard to do. You may not be happy about your physical appearance or certain characteristics. But we need to remember, in order to love others, we must first love ourselves.
So the question is, why do I love myself? I love myself because I have come a long way from who I was as a little girl or teenager. I’m not as shy as I used to be. I have learned to use my voice and am more confident. There are times that I struggle with what I want to say verbally. I remind myself that I have a voice and need to be heard. If I have an opinion on something, I should speak up. Writing this past year has helped me get my voice out there.
What else do I love about myself? I love who I am. Not only am I Julie, I am a wife and a mother. Being a wife and mother is what I always wanted. Someone once told me that I should enjoy being single. But that isn’t me. I wanted a family of my own. And I have that. I am almost 26 years old and I have the most amazing husband and two beautiful girls. I wouldn’t take that away. I may not be out there traveling the world or going on big shopping sprees. That’s okay. This is the life I wanted to live and I am living it. Your life is what you make out of it.
