The following truth to me has been revealed by moving through years of life experience.
When you strip life away, when you get to the center, you are above most here just for one cause. To express who you are in everything you do. To be yourself, in other words. Be yourself fearlessly.
Self-love pushes you to take care of your own needs. You’ll learn to give to yourself, and in doing so, you will develop into the person you strive to be.
This is what some would call living your reality. When life presses on you with its demands, it’s easy to forget. But it’s necessary, even life changing to remember as you respond.
The secret to living fearlessly and embarking on the adventure to be who you were born to be is trading fear for curiosity and gratitude. This is the purest type of love for yourself that you can express unconditionally. It is not an egotistical act. Rather, for the blessing that is your life, it is the highest respect that you can have.
The only way to fearlessly live a life of your making is to love strongly. That’s the connection between love and fear. And there’s an option. There is no room for fear when you chose to go through life making the most caring decisions possible.
As long as your life is about you, you will find a way. As long as you don’t settle for something mediocre, you will find your way. You will find your way as long as you follow the direction that leads to the highest possible self.
