Finding the Time
There are days when the weight of the world feels heavier than the weight I carry on my bones.
Days where the thought of putting aside time to find love for myself sounds ridiculously selfish - there is work to be done, chores to be seen to, a world to fix, and problems that are so much bigger than myself, I can hardly stand it.
But it is these days, where taking the time to love myself is so important, so necessary.
When I love myself, when I know I am strong, the problems I face may be overwhelmingly frustrating and difficult to bear at times - but I can endure.
In a world filled with pain, and broken-hearted individuals, taking the time to show love and kindness to yourself helps not only yourself heal, but can also give others the strength to love themselves, too.
