“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at it destination.”– Maya Angelou

“Love is never lost. If not reciprocated, it will flow back and soften and purify the heart.”– Washington Irving

“Love is everywhere, and I am loving and lovable.”– Louis Hay

Nothing great happens without love. Love is life. If you don’t love yourself, you are a stranger to yourself. To know yourself, to be closer to yourself, you must love yourself. You must be comfortable with yourself- with your weaknesses.

Love means acceptance.

It does not matter what other people are doing. What really matters is what you are doing to make your life a success. When you focus on what other people are doing, you are neglecting what is important to you: your life.

Focus on yourself. Everyday is a new beginning. Don’t miss it. You must accept yourself. You must accept your weaknesses. You must accept your failures. You must accept your mistakes. You must not compare yourself to other people. You must live your life. It is your life. You have the right to live it the way you want. It starts with loving yourself. It starts with forgiving yourself. You can’t love yourself without forgiving yourself. You must be willing to forgive yourself. You must be willing to forgive yourself, so that love can grow.

Whatever you are struggling with right now, love can change it. For it to happen, you must love yourself.

Walk Through Them

Life is about walking. We walk alone. We walk with people. But we are always walking. Yes, we are always walking.

There are lots of things that we cannot change. What do we do? We try to change them. We try to modify them. We try to walk away from them. But the real way to solve a problem is to face it. If you don’t face it, it gets bigger.

Most of the things we face in life will give way if we can walk through them. Sometimes we have the courage to do it. Other times we don’t have the courage to do it. It is okay. But when you do have the courage to face a problem, just walk through them.

In the words of Orison Swett Marden, “Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”
