107: Power Of Self-Love
Welcome to today’s episode. I’m your host, Genecia Alluora. Today I want to talk about a huge lesson in self-love. The power of self-love is key to a lot of women’s success.
A lot of women are extremely nurturing and loving to everyone except themselves. Some psychologists say is because from an early age girls are taught to be helpful, selfless, and no to trouble anyone. I think it causes some women to feel guilty as if they are not worth spending time or money on or even asking for help. This attitude has a direct impact on our weight, health, relationships, sex, and success and holds back so much potential that could make a huge difference in the world to own and love the F-word.
Take care of yourself
(2:21-2:25) Now, I have to admit being one of the worst in self-love.
(2:29-2:42) I was on the ground with several jobs on the go. As a waitress, I was teaching yoga, aerobics, line dancing and not giving myself physical care or even rest.
(2:44-2:59) Now, I remember a really bad time in my life when my self-care was at an all-time low. Now, it serves as a powerful reminder that I am in control of how I feel about myself.
(4:12-4:30) Of course today, I am much better now. But I have to remind myself that I’m allowed to take care of myself lovingly and I deserve a great relationship. That even though It’s something that I still need to work on, at least I’ve come a long way since that day.
Self-love is important
(4:31-4:54) So why is self-love so important? Now, there are some women who seem effortlessly, confidently, beautiful and things just magically happen for them. They might not be the smartest, the nicest, or the most attractive, but there’s something indefinable that makes them stand out like a star.
(4:55-5:38) And usually, these women get what they want because they ask for it and they feel like they deserve it. It’s just as simple as that. They think nothing of treating themselves as they would a special friend or someone they love. This is not selfish. This is a form of self-love and acceptance. Now self-love and self-care is not just about buying yourself flowers, going to the hairdresser, going for massage, but treating yourself how you would treat others. This includes forgiving yourself for mistakes in any area of your life. It’s about being kind to yourself.
What makes you feel special and loved?
(7:02-7:20) For me, I love spending time alone in solitude. Sitting in my beautiful space, either at home or in a park, or just listening to podcasts and enjoying the beauty around me along East coast park.
(7:21-7:32) When I’m busy, fun things go out of the window. And when we are busy, fun things go out of the window because we think we don’t have time.
(7:33-7:51) When money is tight, we feel guilty about spending money on non-essential experiences. The reason why it’s so important is that when we laugh and have fun - we feel lighter and happier. And this affects how we treat our bodies as well.
(8:04-8:13) Don’t let budget issues hold you back from self-care. It’s usually a reflection of how you treat yourself on the inside
(8:36-8:47) Now there are plenty of things you can do that don’t cause too very much money to have very good self-care and therefore power of self-love is unleashed.
- Treat yourself the way you would treat others.
- You are in control of how you feel about yourself.
- Don’t feel guilty
- You deserve more.
- Forgive yourself.
