I recently read a tweet that asked me to name all the things I love. I’m posing that question to you. You may list your family, your children, your pet(s), and for many of us our work. For me, cheesecake and frozen yogurt would also be on that list!
This list can be exhaustive and take some time to complete. Soon our love expresses what we are grateful for. Gratitude is a very powerful emotion. Gratitude is defined as the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Cannot that also be applied to love and the things we love?
The original tweet was “If I asked you to name all the things you love, how long before you name yourself? Don’t forget to save some love for YOU! #YouDeserveIt
So, were you on your list and how close to the top of that list were you? Until you love yourself others are not receiving the love they deserve.
I want to thank Billy Porter of Kinky Boots for the tweet. It certainly made me think and inspired me to share this blog with you.
