Fill Yourself Up From the Inside
Fabulous and fresh thinker —
Do you know how to love yourself and feel loved each and every day, in a consistent way?
Definition of self-love: You loving you, so you can love the world more.
I’m inviting you to live like a “full cup of self-love, sharing the overflow with the world,” and not like a half-empty cup trying to get filled. And when you do feel half-empty, to use your transformational practices and processes to fill yourself up- from the inside.
This practice will allow you to be self-sustaining and self-nourishing.
Many people try to “fill themselves up” with something outside of themselves: Another person, material objects, foods, drinks, work.
This means that you’re always subject to emptiness in some form because the outside is always subject to change.
He or she doesn’t call or text, the job falls through, food effects wear off, whatever we buy isn’t “enough.”
This is because we are meant to fill ourselves up first- from the inside. We are like succulent plants. A succulent gathers water and nourishment from the environment and feeds itself to itself– from the inside. This allows us to be self-sustaining.
We can be like this too.
Experiment with this in your life by using this perspective when you make your decisions and interact with others.
Ask yourself; “Am I in a centered and filled up place inside myself, in order to respond, and what would help me to feel that way?”
Another way to fill yourself up is to start your day hugging yourself. Your endorphins will rise and you’ll get out of bed feeling like 10 good friends have hugged you. You’ll be overflowing with love and ready to share it with the world.
Experiment with ways to fill yourself up from the inside, and know I am practicing right along with you!
