How to make someone fall in love with you.
I want to share this little piece from my Instagram story that really resonated with a lot of people this past weekend. There is a truth in this. It is a reminder to be true.
I have been struggling lately with accepting change. Wow, how can we be like this still as we age? It’s basically what life is about. Like, all the time. Change. We get to take in the tough and the splendid at the same time. We get to. I think when I am at my best is when I am being me even when it feels really awkward or difficult. When I am standing inside of my truth and my light. I am at my best when I am being authentic with myself. Then I can be like that with others.
Sometimes in the mornings, I like to look at myself in the bathroom mirror and pep talk myself back into love. We are not kind to ourselves.
I say things like:
Hi. You are still the child that your mother held and loved and protected. Hi. You are still beautiful and mysterious. Hi. You are doing a great job with the crap on your plate. Hi. You are allowed to not have it all together. Hi. Your weirdness is a virtue. Hi. You can forgive yourself. Hi. The woman you are is quite amazing. Hi. Your love is so good that people think about it randomly throughout the day. Hi. You get to learn more. Hi. You are not always right and that is a good thing. Hi. You are really lovely. Hi. You are kind and good. Hi. You are necessary to the whole thing too. Hi. Holy hell, you are loved.
I am always drawn to the humans who seem to make the most space for me to be myself around them. It’s glorious really. I wanna be like that for the world. To open up my arms and give love freely. To be in the state of love. How it flows. How it goes.
In love—let’s all be in that place.
You are all those things and more. Never forget
You truly are a beautiful human being, Amy. I love this post and I am going to go give myself that peptalk!
