By understanding first out selves we can begin to understand others. It holds the saying, " To love others we must love ourselves" true. Being ignorant just causes more trouble.Think about this for a moment. We often criticizes others for what they do. More often we may even do the exact same thing others are doing without knowing and we are sending negative thoughts their way.
When we love our selves from the heart we raise our self-esteem and love ourselves even more! What's even cool is later on it strengthens our relationships with others. It then cascades where we help raise their self-esteem, they love from their heart and it keeps going. Love never fails
It's all about finding the good in the worst situations. How many times do you find your self pounding out the negatives? Be grateful for all you have! If you're in the middle of an argument stop! and tell the other person what you love about them, life's too short to hate!
The more you give thanks the more people want to be in your life so you get more opportunities and things to be thankful for! Wouldn't it be wonderful if you can be thankful every day of your life. To go to bed looking forward to tomorrow and actually want to wake up everyday?!
The first step to happiness is knowing what you have in life and what you can be grateful for. It's sometimes harder than you think to count your blessings but.. start small.
Today I am grateful for my warm bed that I sleep in every night.
I have found that so often we are depressed about the things going on in life and so we get into this rut of negativity that seems like we can never give out! Choosing to love is the greatest power of all. If it wasn't for love you wouldn't be here, the thing you love and enjoy wouldn't be here, the very device that you are reading this on wouldn't be here because it is love that creates everything around us. If it wasn't for love the Earth would be a barren waste land.
