Falling in love with Yourself

I looked at my reflection
And finally admired her
The woman looking back at me
I saw her true beauty
Her strength and her tenacity
The pain behind her eyes
The fight behind her smile
I saw her worth
So I decided to treat her better
She deserves the world
And I am going to give it to her.”
-JIF

I think that at some point in life, most women find themselves lost and don’t even realize how they got there. Typically from loving the wrong man or maybe just at the wrong time. I know that I went through an extended period of time where I was so lost and it wasn’t until I was out of the bad situation, that I noticed what was happening. I was so busy trying to love someone else that I forgot I needed it too. I guess you could say I forgot my worth. It was not at the forefront of my mind. I went through battling anxiety and battling insecurities. Loving yourself is so important because happiness begins with YOU. You can’t expect for someone else to make you happy – people add to our lives but we have to already have the joy inside of us. Find yourself first – that journey is one that is priceless.
