My peeps! What up? I’m glad you made it! Look, I’m here to tell you, you’re here for a reason. Now, you and only you can determine what that reason is, but let me help you out a little. Everyone is familiar with that feeling deep down inside. That constant beating within our chests that makes us feel alive. I guess you could call it love?
Allow me to explain:
See, I question this notion of love because, believe it or not, I am not fully versed in the emotion …let me back up a little bit.
Hi there! Call me a Wild Thing. I’m here to tell you, that you’re not alone. We all get that feeling deep down in the pit of our stomachs, and can’t quite explain it. Yet, we know it when we feel it. Love, could be described with words such as faith, passion, or lust. Whatever you call it, it’s why we’re here. Just trust me on this.
If you look up, there’s an entire universe and we can’t see it. We’re sure it’s out there, and have we have scientific evidence; proof beyond reasonable doubt! But can we feel it? That’s a lesson for another day, but just know that I have a hard time grasping this concept of love due to the environment in which I was brought up in. Excellent childhood memories, but not so many affectionate gestures within the military household my grandparents raised their daughters (my mom and aunt) or grandchildren (my brother and me) in while drinking and smoking heavily. I feel like I turned out alright, but I’m still learning to heal myself from years of trauma. I think we all are; It’s the human experience.
So ask yourself this, “What do you love?” Me? I love sleeping, I love the beach, I love laughter and jokes. Usually the inappropriate jokes get me, and yes I still find them funny.
And I’m pretty funny — looking 😜 so, I love that about myself.
Now go on, tell me what you love about yourself? Personally, I believe in order to allow someone to love you, you in turn must first learn to love yourself. I mean, that’s why you’re here right? I hope that’s why you’re here. Let me just say, thank you for reading my blog by the way! It really means a lot to me, and please comment below if want any questions answered or topics covered. You are appreciated!
See, I too am on the journey for self love. I’m lost, but I’m hopeful, and I hope you enjoy this path you’re on to health and wellness.
Alright, let me ask you a question:
What are you going to do when opportunity knocks? Are you going to sink, or are you going to swim like a mo-fo? We all have a different goal in mind. You just have to consider yours, and I’m here to help you with that. Just pretend like I’m your cheerleader, because I’m going through it right there along with you. We’re in this journey towards self love together, and I hope we win.
