Directional Challenge

October 28, 2015

If self-love was available in a cup, it’d be bigger than Starbucks.

It’d drink like morning sunshine, illuminating inner beauty,

and taste like joy.

At least, that’s what I thought until I came across a gem of a new concept.

This concept changes the direction of self-love from something that flows inward. . .

to something that flows outward.

Self-love is not the love of self, but love that is self.

There is a difference between loving myself and being me who loves.

When I am me who loves,

I am genuinely expressing my inner core and that, my friends, fills me with self-love.

That is why it feels so good to love.

Expressing love is self-love.

And so, I’d like to change my opening paragraph.

If self-love was available in a cup, it wouldn’t stay in the cup long enough to drink.

It would radiate out like morning sunshine, illuminating beauty in others,

and taste like steamy joy.

May

your

cup

radiate

with

steamy

emptiness.

Peace from the Prairie.
