Last year I took a stand to love, honor, cherish, empower and accpet myself. I came across this awesome book called Madly in Love with Me The Daring Adventures of becoming your own bestfriend written by the beautiful Queen of Self-Love herself Christine Arylo.
This book is an open guide to helping you release that INNER MEAN GIRL. It’s not an easy thing to truly love yourself when you truly dislike who you are. I’ve been there for years thinking I was loving myself only to find out I HATED MYSELF!!
Never once has anyone ever accepted me for me…always trying to change me to fit a mold that wasn’t created for me. Trying to please others, being what others thought I should be, instead of trusting who I wanted to be, which was…ME!
I found out people are afraid of authencity- how can you be afraid of your own TRUTH AND REALNESS? One must ask themselves that. How many times have I denied my truth to please and make others feel comfortable.
They had no issues with being themselves…I locked away who I was to sooth bruised egos of people who don’t know who they are and they aren’t loving themselves; now I’m sure they believe they truly love who they are, I don’t doubt that at all. But it’s not that REAL TRUE SELF-LOVE LOVE.
Joining this awesome and amazing SELF-LOVE MOVEMENT along with thousands of women like myself is motivation to change myself for the better and put myself first. I became an LOVE AMBASSADOR, standing together, united, simply by giving and receiving love. Being a woman who truly loves herself completely in every way a woman should. (Taking care of myself first, expressing myself completely, appreciating myself on a daily, requiring unconditional respect and love in all my relationships and more.)
I invite you to join myself along with a legion of. LOVE AMBASSADORS from around the world to spread, share, receive, express love. All humans need love to surive and to feel whole. Love is free. Love is everywhere.
To become an Love Ambassador and receive the full Love Ambassador Kit with more love-generating acts that you can share, go to Love Ambassador
“Wear love everywhere you go.”
what stands before me
I still know it’s thereI can still hold it
and dream of its possibilities.
My dreams are actions-
great strides I will always take,
some emaculate, some not so much,
But all meaningful,
distinguishing me as an individual.
I give myself strength
and although I have self-doubt,
I have to trust the passion within me.
As I Began to Love Myself – Self Love Poem
As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering
are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth.
Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.
As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody
As I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time
was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this
person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.
As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life,
and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow.
Today I call it “MATURITY”.
As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance,
I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens
at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm.
Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.
As I began to love myself I quit steeling my own time,
and I stopped designing huge projects for the future.
Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do
and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in
my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.
As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for
my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew
me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude
a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”
As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since
I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.
As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worry
about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where EVERYTHING
is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.
As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me
and it can make me sick. But As I connected it to my heart, my
mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this
connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.
We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems
with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing
new worlds are born.Today I know THAT IS “LIFE”!
TODAY I START LOVING ON ME!
