The events of this month have me deeply reflecting on the importance of turning the love inward. If I do not constantly re-fall in love with myself, how I flow my love externally can get unbelievably off track. Loving and accepting all I have within primes me to have the capacity to do so with another (anyone really). I have learned this lesson profoundly (and often quite painfully) when I have mistakenly outsourced my wellbeing and happiness to a business, a partner, a lover, a friend, my daughter, food, over-scheduling---the list of ways we distract ourselves is infinite. Yet, it wasn’t until I learned to sit in the quiet spaces, the in betweens, the dark and the light alone and in peace that I finally learned to love myself.
