Because you're worth it....


Who better to learn to love than yourself....it's so important to find your value...to know that you are more precious than gold...that you are worthy of all the love in the world...how can we think it possible to love another soul the way it should be loved, if we can not in turn feel and give that same love to ourselves!?! 
Love doesn't care what you look like, how skinny you think you should be, whether you have all the smarts in the world. Sometimes a person has been treated badly & needs to learn what love is...maybe you could be that person to them...no matter what someone's been through...Give yourself a break, you're alive & you're awesome..we are far too hard on ourselves...we think too much of what we feel we should be instead of loving & appreciating the awesome things we are already, no one else in this world is like you or can ever be you...and that is priceless.
A long time ago, I would spend so much time thinking I wasn't good enough or not as pretty as other girls to the point of severe anxiety...but I had to realize that it had to begin within myself...it wouldn't matter what I changed on the outside or what nice things others might say...I had to change my own thinking from the inside out, I was not put on this Earth to pander to the opinions of others...I was meant to shine as myself, just like they were...I am like no other...you are like no other & this is so very special. When we truly love ourselves, we give no time to the things or people that bring us down & take us away from ourselves, we begin to see what is truly healthy and right for our well being.
To put it another way, If you talked to your friends and family the way you talked about yourself...would you want to be friends any more!?! Would you be leaving them in pieces or feeling on top of the world!?! Maybe keep that in mind the next time you go to cut yourself down or let someone else speak to you in such a way!

Have a fantastic Wednesday dolls

  4. Kizzy, these are the kind of words I just needed to read, they are beautiful and so true. Is hard to say, but the first love is inner, starts inside us and is for yourself. There is no person who will love you more and will be more friend as you..Im just think of it, how we could love others if neither loves us, thats why maybe some people attract the wrong person, creating a bad relationship, cause there is not love for yourself. Congrats for this wonderful post Kizzy, going to be the best of today <3 The photo is stunning and so are you, love that quote, is a perfect reminder for the day. Kisses and hugs my dear, happy wed xo

  13. Kizzy, your words are nothing more than the truth. You are so right and I'm so happy you seem to have truly taken this quote and its meaning in for what they are. Body image is such a hard thing to appreciate and I am not there myself yet, so I truly commend you for what must have been some hard soul-searching. Be brave, as always. I feel like a big congratulations are in order for this discovery. Ps. one sophisticated and hot-ass picture. Rosemary x

  17. Thank you for sharing this, and telling us a little bit more about you. I have gone through similar things, and it can be rough! But I am definitely all for loving myself and FORGIVING myself for not being perfect. And you are so right, if I talked to my friends and family the way I talk to myself sometimes, I don't' think anyone would want to hang out with me! Time to change the way we talk to ourselves and look at ourselves... only positive thinking :)

  28. Beautiful, beautiful post. I will forward it to a friend of mine who is in need of such encouraging words right now - and keep it in my own mind for those times when I'm putting myself down. xo

    PS: Thank you so much for all your lovely comments. I want you to know that I hugely appreciate them even if I can't manage to comment as often as I'd like to - a day job, family, writing for 3 blogs leaves me little time for reading interesting blogs, sorry. However, I love your writing and your overall message :-)

  33. wonderfully written dear Kizzy! If we are to help others, we must first be strong ourselves and be there for ourselves. One cannot be there for others, if one spends all the time questioning ones' own worth. It is easy to get stuck in a vicious circle of negative thinking and anxiety. Quite often we don't know what we're capable of until we do it or until life makes us take some really hard blows.

    Beautiful photograph my dear and I like that quote. Oscar was a fabulous writer, I believe I have literally read all he has written!

  34. Love this beautiful message and presentation! Life can really be so much better if we all just learned to love ourselves. Thanks for the reminder Kizzy! Happy Wednesday!

  57. Thank you for even more lovely inspiration! But it's weird how I - and a LOT of other people - can read this and know it's SO true, yet it's so difficult to actually put it into practice... I think we all should print this post out and put it on our bathroom mirrors, so we can read it every morning! Then maybe it would actually sink in... ;) I've gone through a lot of shit too, and after you've been put down by others too many times, the self-love need a LOT of work! I'm doing better at it now though. But still working at it... :) Also, I hope you're getting that quote tattooed on your back! ;) Love you honey!!! <3 <3 <3

    PS. I thought you might like those pieces of jewelry I blogged about yesterday, and I hope he'll soon call us to model them for him! I think we should do the shoot lying on a pile of harem-fitting pillows in an old Arabic castle! ;)
