“This minute decide to never again beg anyone for the love, respect, and attention you should be showing yourself. Today, look at yourself in the mirror and say, ‘I love you, and from now on I’m going to prove it!’ When you practice self-love and self-care, you give yourself the opportunity to be happy. And when you are happy, you become a better friend, a better lover, a better family member, and a better you.”

—Marc and Angel Chernoff, Getting Back to Happy

  1. Good thoughts Kathy - if we cannot love ourselves we are unable to love others. Hope you are having a good week. Know the Ukrainians are in your heart this day as well as they are for me. Hugs!

    1. Debbie--We sometimes forget that it's not an either/or matter. We can, and should, love ourselves as we also love others. The Ukrainians are in my heart this week--and it's encouraging to see worldwide support for them. If only that support will help them overcome.
