Slow Clap For Self Love

WE DESERVE IT

I’m Doing Three … Taking A Long Five Count.

Just because.

And, I’ve never done it before.

First timer for Big Self Love.

Alright, here goes …

Clap … Clap … Clap …

Hey, now.

DO IT

If You Haven’t, And Again, If It’s Been Awhile.

“Feel Your Internal Love Glow … Applauso, Bellissima e Bellissimo.”

Clap It Out as much you like.

Stand up, if it helps.

As long as it takes.

HOW’D IT FEEL?

That’s Your Smile I Hear.

“Breathing Self Love.  All The Way.  Inhaling Love.  Exhaling More Love.”

Heart may get all the credit, but lungs do the heavy lifting.  The grunt work.  When it comes to facilitating Love you’ve got to breathe it in and out.

Love catching a ride.

RESPECT, APPRECIATION & GRATITUDE

For Self.

Always.

“Surrender Your Love … To Be Loved.”

Accept nothing less from Self.

You’re worth the ovation.

FUN FACT CONFESSION #1

Self Love Is, Um, Very New To Me …

How new?

Let’s just say … recent. 

Very ‘ish’.

As a recovering Narcissist – if we’re labelling, and that’s perfectly okay by mesome will argue … the moniker fits – I’d subscribed to an entirely different (ignorant) definition of Self Love.

Self Love = Vanity.

Untrue.

FUN FACT CONFESSION #2

If I Have A Redeeming Quality, Let It Be My Humble Ability To Forgive Unconditionally.

Spoiler Alert:

Sainthood doesn’t await me.  There’s no grassroots movement for the future Beatification of Mick.

My internal gripe:

“I’m learning to forgive myself.”

Not to be so needy of penance.

Clingy about punishment, Spiritually-speaking.

FUN FACT CONFESSION #3

I’ve Known Few Boundaries.

My appetite for self sabotage once flourished through insatiable Ego enablers.

“An unhealthy disposition that usurped positive energy, left me exposed and vulnerable to my own devices, and to mitigate a legacy of poor life choices with real consequences.”

Way better now, thanks.

Being Mindful does wonders.

Living with True Purpose and Intention = Loving God.

LOVE NEEDS LOVE

Either Way.

As Self Love does.

“You’ve Got To Give It To Get It.”

You’re the only one qualified to give Self Love.

And to receive it.

Is there a better gift to self than love?

Don’t wait for others.

They’re busy loving themselves as you should be loving you.

GET YOUR SELF LOVE ON

We Needn’t Be So Serious.

Be done with serious.

Have fun with it.

We talked about this is in The Tao Of Self Deprecating Humor

And, wasn’t that splendid?

PERMISSION TO BE FABULOUS

No Approval Required.

Whatever Fabulous is.

“Doing You.  How Fabulous, Darling.”

Just being True Self is Fabulous enough.

IF YOU’RE GOING TO CRY

Let It Out, Switch Gears, Flip The Toggle, And Make It Laughter.

Smile first.

An infectious prerequisite to essential laughter.

Here’s a few helpers:

Divine Beauty.

Miracles.

Joy.

Spirit.

AND THIS …

Heartache, smartache

Kick emotional pain in the ass.

“Go Wherever True Love Takes You.”

Don’t wait for it to show up.

PARK YOUR EGO IN OBLIVION

It’s Not Welcome Here Or Anywhere.

Write down a couple things you ‘Love About You’.

Do that with your day.

And, a few more things you don’t.

Homework for your heart.

Sweet way to hug life.

LOVE THE SKIN YOU’RE IN

Respect It.

Every way.

Nourish it right.

“Get Spiritually Healthy on Food For The Soul.”

Work out the body kinks.

Until it looks good and feels right.

Audition your vocal chords.

Sing a little louder now.

Play mind games for your intellect.

Solve a problem.

Feel something, anything, everything … About You.

I SAID THESE WORDS

Glockenspiel.  Hibiscus.  Doodle.

First three I thought of.

Random.

I don’t know why.

How Self Love Does It.

It ain’t picky, folks.

Self Love doesn’t think about it.

It just does and is.

Gets it right every time.

No invite required.

PRETTY FLOWERS

Take A Bouquet Home.

Guys, too.

Give them a special place where you’ll see them most often.

“They’ll only be there a short while.”

Talk to them at dinner tonight, breakfast tomorrow.

What are they saying?

BREAK OUT

In Dance … 

Freestyle.

Bollywood it up.

Line dance solo.

Twerk … if its your thing.

Shuffle.

Tango … I wish.

Get your body moving – ignite new unfound energy – solicit endorphins within.

NOW, TAKE ALL THE SELF LOVE

Pent Up Inside And Release It Into The Universe.

Give it a shake.

Let it go.

Energy flowing.

Share it.

Spread it.

SELF LOVE IS GOD LOVE

Divine Beauty Within, Expressed Externally.

The triumphant Antithesis of resentment, envy and jealously.

You don’t need that hanging on your back like stinking Karma Gone Bad.

Loving Self makes Love For All possible.
