You should go and love yourself! I got you with the Justin Bieber lyrics didn’t I? 😉 Ok, let’s be serious. Why is it so easy to love everyone around us, but when it comes down to the most important person in the world we are not really able to do it? When was the last time you told yourself you love yourself? Self love!
The thing about love you see, I want my life to be a devotion to love. To be love. To see the beauty in everyone and everything. But then again, i’m forgetting to appreciate the beauty and loving energy in me. Rumi has a perfect way to describe self love.
Love yourself darling
As I’m writing this, I’m sitting on a chair waiting for my flight to Kuala Lumpur. When I’m leaving a country, i’m writing some things down for myself. I ended my last sentence with I love You, and it feels like a big powerful roar into the universe. I have been punishing myself for way to long. Pushing away emotions I didn’t like, but now I am going to love every messy piece of me. I’ve learnt so much after my motorbike accident and I’m blessed that it woke me up big time. All the pain I experienced.. Phew, I had to accept and keep my thoughts pure.
“What we think, we become.” – Buddha
Everything is energy and your mind is a powerfull thing. Start your day with a look in the mirror, give yourself a big smile and give yourself the biggest pep talk ever. It is said that your inner world is like a echo to the outer world and your outer world is like a mirror. So what kind of echo do you want to send out? ? Your self talk is the most important conversation you have.
And hey sometimes it’s okay to not really feel it. As long as you are honest about it. It takes a lot of courage to grow and sometimes it can be a painful process but know that for every bumpy road you will have your rewards. It is up to us how we are willing to grow and it’s up to us how we are playing our role in this movie called life. You are the director and the actor. And if life is but a dream, i’m going to live the dream I want to dream. Let your heart speak for your mind. Balance. Love yourself?
With Love, Jessica

I stumbled a cross a field of beautiful yellow flowers and only one really caught my eye. This flower sparked something within my heart/mind; an old memory of being scared to walk in my own truth. An old memory of feeling misunderstood, a feeling of being comfortable living in my own shell. But this flower […]
I still remember the day we both went our separate ways. You held me hostage. I almost suffocated. You brought me to my knees and I begged for mercy. It took some time to heal, to pick up the pieces. And it was such a relief to jump towards the light back then. But here we are […]
When life is challenging you. It wants to make sure you go level up. To taste your own darkness in order to transform it into light. You see.. to become the radical self-lover you are, you have to break open. Embrace the rupture and move through it. Feel it with your whole being. Feel every emotion, […]
🚫 #vulnerability ALERT – (because some people may think vulnerability is a weakness. Vulnerability is all about owning your own story and loving yourself in the process. It’s one of the first steps to a more wholehearted life. I remember last year being at a
