“One is loved because one is loved. No reason is needed for loving.”~ Paulo Coelho
Instead of a usual prompt there is a quote this week for revelations coinciding with Valentines. I’ve already gone into detail about being addicted to love over a year ago but this year is different and for this post I am looking love from a different persepctive.
I am by nature a lover of all kinds whether it’s family, real life friendships, online friendshsips or even relationships I have.
Some people will be aware of this love I have if they and I chat more often, they will see me for who I am and just how much love I can give no matter who they are to me.
The one thing missing from this observation is the love I have for myself, in fact that’s the one area I have neglected over the years.
I often see myself as being flawed in many ways, I often see some of these flaws on a daily basis and I often associate them with many things wrong in my life and therefore I don’t find love within myself.
It’s funy that I am addicted to being in love and how good that is, but that I don’t give it to myself.
In 2023 I am realising that if I can love others no matter what then I can surely love myself, it’s no good to be filled with love for them, giving them all the nice words of love and support but then neglect to do the same for myself.
There is also the fact that if the love I give to others is reciprocated back to myself then surely there is lots to love about myself.
I am doing more for myself this year, trying to make all the things happen and so hopefully I will end up with more love for myself come the end of the year.
I also hope that this may lead to being love in more wasy than one.
The below image is an old one (Edited for this post) that has always been a favourite of mine simply because you can easily see the shape of a heart in my butt and I have to remind myself that it can show me that there ois love within myself and I must see it.
One thought on “[Revelations/February PhotoFest 2023] – Loving myself, loving others and being loved”
I love this shot. The shape of your bum is stunning and I love how the hairs are clinging to your leg.
Hurrah for love, for others and ourselves
