Self-Love and Self-Compassion

There is a reason why so many well respected people talk about loving yourself and showing yourself compassion because it’s key to help you on your way to Live Powerfully.

How many times in our lives do we hear that self-love is important, and how many times do we ignore it and think, when I have the time I will try and focus on it, or it is just relevant for other people?  Well, lovely reader, it is time to start listening!

taking some time out to appreciate yourself is suc a good practice to get into.

And if you need more convincing here is what some others have to say::

You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love & affection. ~Buddha

It’s not your job to like me…it’s MINE! ~Byron Katie
