Seeds of Self Love

Updated on May 14, 2018

Lay down your shame, your smallness, and pick up your worth. Rise from the shackles of pain to thank the shadow for your strength to reach, to grow, to shine.

Ignite your passion with a spark of imagination and paint with the colors of your soul. Dance, sing, leap. And if that seems extreme, consider a simple cartwheel.

Trust the soles of your feet as you dust off your dreams and walk with the courage to create them, to live them.

Remember the love that thrives in every seed planted, including the one that brought you here. It is the most potent universal truth, this business of love.

Gather it, offer it, give gratitude for the aching and longing that calls it forth. Open your arms and receive it. Be it.

Bloom, dearly beloved, like a moon flower, a sunflower, or even a cactus.

        Hi, Tyrse -- beautiful job. And to show you that I am pretty much a writer for abstract/prose, I read your hub again and it spoke to me about "love your neighbor as you love yourself," a lot of people have somehow left off the second part of this powerful scripture, when at both ends, loving one's self is just as important as your neighbor.

        I hope that I made sense.

        Keep in touch with me.
