Fresh Start to Self-Love
I am over-joyed to join you in welcoming a new year. Year after year, we strive to become and do better as January ushers in. We make promises and hope to stick to our New Year's resolutions.
As the weeks and months pass, some resolutions dwindle while others creep into our souls and become our success stories.
At the start of this new year, I found it necessary to heighten the awareness of self-love and utilize the inner strength to shape and accomplish a superhero with life: - spirit, mind, body, and soul.
I remember one evening in October 2020 looking out my bedroom window and notice to a dark cloud that spread over an area in the sky. I saw it in three dimensions and immediately compared it to the pandemic that stormed across the globe. The dark form of the cloud that evening somehow reassured me that an end is near to the darkness of this intrusive pandemic; soon, we will illuminate once more.
Like the years that followed the influenza pandemic of 1918 – 1919; of the roaring twenties, this year, 2021, is The Year of a Fresh Start. It's our year to roar after last year that bought human equalizer caused by the COVID 19 virus pandemic.
In this issue, we share information and tips on Fresh Start to Self-Love. Self-love means taking care of your own needs and not sacrificing your well-being. It's not vanity; it's fastening on your seat belt and bucketing up first as, when in flight.
Having high regard for one's well-being tends to foster growth from actions that support the physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being.
