When was the last time you wrote a love letter?
You know, a love letter to your sweet heart, the person who make your heart sing and eyes sparkle when they walk into the room.
And, if you received a love letter, how did it make you feel?
Did your insides glow and flutter and the waves of light fill your soul?
Now, imagine, writing a love letter to yourself and say everything you love about yourself.
If you have already written one…congratulations, you are definitely top of the Self-Love Class!
However, if you are like me, and haven’t written a love letter to yourself, read on and discover how I wrote my first selfie-love letter!
As you already know, I love writing and enjoy sending poems to friends, yet it never occurred to me to write a love letter to myself. I don’t know why, it just never occurred to me.
However, whilst filling out my daily entry in The Five Minute Journal, the weekly challenge, was to write a love letter to yourself and say everything you love about yourself.
I must admit, that particular challenge took me by surprise and I chose to ignore the Weekly Challenge and carry on with filling in the rest of my daily challenge.
However, you know what it’s like, the things we ignore are the exact thing we need to address.
What was I ignoring? Why was I so resistant to writing a love letter to myself?
Meditation to the Rescue
As per usual, anytime I feel anxious and not sure what to do, I breathe and turn to my daily meditation practice for counsel.
So, I sat and meditated.
After my practice, I took up my pen wrote the title “write a love letter to yourself and say everything you love about yourself”… and here is what I wrote.
Write A Love Letter To Yourself And Say Everything You Love About Yourself
I love the way you express yourself, the way you care about others and desire to always step out of your way to help others.
I love your smile, the way your eyes crinkle up when you laugh and the way you rock backwards and forwards and clap your hands when something makes you laugh.
I love you more than you will ever know.
Your gentle way of being in the world, creating, spreading warmth and light wherever you go; like a roaring fire on a cold winter’s night.
I love your determination to shed layers of past hurt to rise above the forest and find a tree to hug; the way you inch forward, peak around the bushes and take a friend along their next step.
I love the way you walk, head held high, eyes on the prize and feet gently caressing the Earth.
I love you more and more each day and want to wake up with you by my side; to share our last meal together before you leave this world and keep you safe and warm.
I love you.
Thank you for caring about me and giving me your best.
I love you.
Well, what are you thoughts about my love letter to myself?
I have read it a couple of times and each time I feel proud to love me and hope it inspires you to write a love letter to yourself.
Now that I’ve taken the first step and shared my love letter to myself with you, will you do the same?
Will, you sit quietly one day and write yourself a love letter. Serenade and romance your soul and tell yourself how loving and great you are? I really hope you do.
And when you have done that, I’d love you to send me a copy of your love letter. Who knows, if we get enough love letters I could compile them into a book as part of my kindle publishing empire!
Till, next time, have a beautiful loving day.
I love you
