Simple Self Love Question

On this journey of love I began for the new year I fully expected to travel many roads leading to many different kinds of love. And, sure, I expected self-love to be one of the paths I might encounter. However, I did not expect it to be me so soon nor did I expect the pathway to loving oneself to arise in such a roundabout way as I discovered in my wanderings today.

Sharing with you where a few little love jaunts took me to but first I want to simply ask that you spend more than a few moments really listening to the words of this video share.

Unconditional Love - The Simple Question

Without hesitation, my initial response to the simple question was, No. I do not. I do love myself but with conditions.

Then I listened to the words of unconditional love being shared with me and I knew, know, that I have loved myself unconditionally, just as I have loved others unconditionally. I know there are times when I love myself and others just the way they are but then there are those times when I do not love the way I am or the way 'they' are, so I guess my love is not as unconditional as I would like it to be.

For the betterment of self and of others, you can bet I will be spending a bit more time on the simple question of unconditional love.

Did you ask yourself the simple question of unconditional love hidden in the words of the video?
Please share your response.

Join me on this daily journey of love.

SHARE the LOVE is a blog hop.

  1. My first thought Dogs, every day they give it to me.

    1. Yes, Maureen, my dogs too. Now, if I could learn to love my self as unconditionally as my dogs do, then I may have made the giant step to true self love.

  2. A very powerful video, thought provoking. Sadly my current answer is no I do not love myself unconditionally exactly for the reasons described in the video of looking at the outer me rather than the true person that lays inside. Thanku Maureen for sharing this xx

    1. Sharon, I am glad Maureen shared the link with you!

      I know you fret over loving yourself just the way that you are just as I often do, Sharon. This is your time to shine; to work through to the outside, which I know you can do!

  3. That's def something I want to teach my kids to grow up loving themselves from the very beginning! Thanks for the reminder!

  4. I tell my kids that they are perfectly imperfect. I think that we need to accept the fact that we can't be perfect, but that we are perfect the way we are. Yet, we can always better ourselves. I feel that that is how I figured out how to love myself unconditionally--accepting myself for who I am, flaws and all. Very nice post!

  5. I'm afraid that I also do not love myself unconditionally. I see my flaws....especially the ones that I can't seem to change.

  6. My mom has always said her biggest regret with raising us, is that she rarely put her needs on the list of priorities and that she felt like we would have done better to have a mom that valued herself enough to make the list. I struggle with that now, I see my every flaw and will rationalize reasons why my wants aren't important, but I can see how loving yourself is so important. It's something to work on, for sure.


I appreciate your comments!
