The most important person to love is yourself.
Not selfishly, nor blindly, nor exclusively – just boldly.
If you’ll love yourself with this level of intention, it can’t help but spill over to others and compel you to seek their highest good, too.
This is how unconditional love and collaboration and peace and hope are fostered.
Plus, imagine the opposite: When you don’t launch into your day (or your life) with a healthy self-love, there’s little left to share with the world. This is how competition and hate and and war become the norm.
Plant seeds today that yield the harvest you prefer – for yourself, for your children and for humanity.
Welcome to June. We’re halfway through another historic year!
In light of young tennis star Naomi Osaka’s dramatic (and courageous) decision a few days ago to put her dreams on hold and practice self-care, I share the sentiments in this post as a reminder to all of us that what matters most is not material gain nor worldly success.
It is what flows into and from the heart that can make you or break you.
Let us live and lead with more empathy, truth and love, because everyone, at every level, needs it.
You never know what someone else is going through behind that smile, that frown, that fear, that anger, those actions or that attitude. So give everyone grace, because they don’t know your full story either.
Judge little; love liberally – rinse and repeat!
