i feel good. alhamdulillah. i don't know why i'm having all these happy hormones. it's just weird but i'm actually enjoying it. i've always felt that it's important to love ourselves. because if we do not appreciate who we are, then it's going to be a tougher road ahead. you should learn to love yourself FIRST before you are able to spread the love and share it with others.
you see, when you really love someone, you always want the very best for him
or her, right? you would do anything for them. ou would make sacrifices for them and defend them if anyone speaks badly of them, right? then i feel that the same thing goes when you love yourself.
when you love yourself, you will want the very best for yourself. you would not accept anything less than the best for yourself. you will want the best relationships, the best career, the best partner and the best home. anything lesser than that wont suffice. you will not accept anything mediocre. like how i've always said to Hisham, that i will not settle for second best beacuse i only want the best.
what i'm trying to say is, technically people who love themselves tend to set a higher standard for themselves. they have big dreams and set high expectations of themselves. but having all these also means mamking sacrifices along the way. good things don't come easy. you will do what it takes to be better and achieve your goals. i was once very fat, i told myself to stop mistreating my body, started exercising religiously and lost weight. today, i do my best to eat healthily and avoid junk foods. i grew up in a low income family, but i told myself that i'm not going to end up a production line operator, but i'm going to make lots of money and support my family.. and i did.
you'll be amazed at the power of your mind and the power of loving yourself. wake up each morning, look at yourself in the mirror and say thanks to God for making you perfect in your own special way.
be thankful for another day given to live and spend time with those you love. we don't know when God will take all these away from us, so let's live each day the best that we can.
i always say this.. happiness NEVER last.. so find temporary happiness in the little passing moments of our lives..
so, LOVE yourself! =)
