Chanel Francene  Love for the Souls of Brown Women πŸ’–Know Yourself πŸ’–Love Yourself πŸ’–Nourish Your Soul

[IG Layout Maintenance - Poster 3/3 ] πŸ’πŸΎ In the meantime, READ THIS POEM πŸ‘‰πŸΎπŸ‘‰πŸΎ "As I Began to Love Myself" (rumored to be written by Kim McMillen. Made famous by Charlie Chaplin) PART 3
⚫️
As I began to love myself, I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is 'MODESTY'.
⚫️
As I began to love myself, I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it 'FULFILLMENT'.
⚫️
As I began to love myself, I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection 'WISDOM OF THE HEART'.
⚫️
We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know 'THAT IS LIFE'!"

⚫️
As I began to love myself, I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exact right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it 'SELF-CONFIDENCE'.
⚫️
As I began to love myself, I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it 'SIMPLICITY'.
⚫️
*As I began to love myself, I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is 'LOVE OF ONESELF'.

⚫️
"As I began to love myself, I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is 'AUTHENTICITY'.
⚫️
As I began to love myself, I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it 'RESPECT'.
⚫️
As I began to love myself, I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it 'MATURITY'. [continued on next poster]...

The struggle can be real, but so is the growth... πŸ’–πŸ‘‰πŸΎ The lengths life will go through just to grow your character is amazing. You'll look up and find yourself flat on the ground with a footprint on your rear end (I'm being nice here 😜). In these cases, your #bounceback game has to be strong!! πŸ‘‰πŸΎ#pushthrough πŸ’πŸΎπŸ’“

Hey you! Yes, you! πŸ›‘ πŸ‘‰πŸΎYou may be preoccupied with the buildings (your current circumstances), but there's a beautiful horizon beyond them (who you're striving to be). Keep your eyes on the person you're growing into. Keep working. Keep believing. This is self-love.

"We are eachΒ giftedΒ in a unique and important way. It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light." -Mary Dunbar πŸ’–πŸ‘‰πŸΎYou may have to separate yourself from the things around you in order to find that light.πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ That's okay. Do what you must to find yourself and then love what you find! πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“

I believe what my great grandmother and grandmother told me (more than any "European" made history book). πŸ‘‰πŸΎDo more research. Know yourself and then love what you find!! Self-love is about loving *all* of you... πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ πŸ’–πŸ’“πŸ’–

So many of us beat ourselves up over the "timeline" we have in our own head. We think we've failed if we don't reach "success" (whatever that means) by a certain moment we have planned. This has definitely been me over the past few months, and I know SOMEBODY can relate. Much worse is when other people chastise us about where they think we should be by now. It's a horrible and depressing way to live. πŸ‘‰πŸΎBe patient with yourself. Look at how far you've come versus how much further you have to go.πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ This is the only way to keep your vibration high enough to actually achieve anything. Self-love is also believing in yourself. πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“

What is your happiness worth to you? Why aren't you focusing on it more? An even better question... what are you willing to sacrifice for it? Are you willing to give up worrying about what other people think? Are you willing to give up your self-doubt? What about your limited view of your current circumstances? Everything worth having will cost you something. This is what self-love looks like. If you want happiness, you'll have to change your thinking. It's time to pay up. πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“
