I want to sing you a love song

A lesson and a practice on 
loving yourself

If you are anything like me and you listen to love songs, 
you listen and think of those that you love 
and all the emotions associated with that love. 

I desire being loved 'like a love song'
and you probably do too.

 Today, I went for a walk with my headphones on and
I sang my favorite love songs to myself. 

I thought about how I have the choice to love myself
the way I want to be loved.

Now to some that may sound a bit vain or egotistical and In the past I too, would have thought the same;
however, it is not.

It is love of self, and it is necessary for inner peace.

All too often we look very closely at all the things
we fall short on and it is easy to become blind
to all the good that we innately are.

 Most of us are quick to forgive
and show others unconditional love, however,
we do not show ourselves that same courtesy.

Today as I sang to myself, there was no room in my mind
for the negative thoughts.
There was no room in my mind for my shortcomings.
there was only love, for me, unconditionally.

I smiled, I laughed at the idea and
I felt loved, all by myself.

Give it a try,
Pick your favorite love song
and sing to yourself as loud as you can.
I can almost guarantee it will make you smile :)
(if it doesn't, pick another song and keep trying)

Sing, sing a song, make it simple to last your whole life long.
Don't worry that it's not good enough
for anyone else to hear, just sing, sing a song!
-Karen Carpenter
