How to Better Self-Love – Pt. 3
This is the place where we’ll dive in deeper and explore different areas of life to help you discover how you can learn to better self-love.
Go ahead and close your eyes for 5-10 seconds and think about the best trip you’ve ever taken. Did you get a vision of what made that trip so memorable? Did you do the same thing each and every day? Or did you do something different each day? Did you discover a new favorite food? Did you splurge on a gift? Did you do something you never thought you would do?
My guess is that you did new things, discovered new favorites and enjoyed new adventures that helped you get a new view of who you are. And just as memorable and adventure-filled that trip was, love and relationships can have the same impact on your awareness and expansion if you allow it to happen.
Relationship Insight #3 – Love Is an Adventure Filled With Excitement and an Expectation of Expansion
Sure, bliss is nice, but you can’t achieve greater awareness without expansion and exploration. Love isn’t just about living in this constant state of bliss. You don’t want to be that couple in a relationship who’s just sitting back and have every day be the same thing. Day in and day out, it’d bet the same routine.
Love is an adventure where you’re constantly exploring new ideas and new ways of being. It’s about supporting your partner and experiencing new and exciting things. Love is constantly changing. When it’s about change, you’ll realize it’s also about accepting. Accepting your partner for who he/she is and accepting yourself for who you are. It comes back to the idea of self-love.
Being in a state of love never has to do with the other person. It’s about you being aligned with your highest values, remembering what you’re about and fully living in the experience. If you’re fully engaged, you’re more aware and more present in the relationship. If you decide relationships will be easy, then they will be. There will be contrast and there will be work to do, but you have the power to make the adventure enjoyable and exciting.
