Like a newborn baby, I swaddle in love all of the parts of me that feel:
I wrap my heart around those pieces that feel:
afraid to be naked, exposed or seen
afraid to love…and to be loved…and to receive or give love.
With each moment that I allow more love for me, the more I am able to love you.
I give love to those parts of me that have held me back. They did so, out of the only love they ever knew, which was fear. Now they receive my attention and the tension resolves. They melt like butter in the hot sun of my own love.
Please join me today is giving yourself a little bit more love, compassion and grace. The small things do add up.
Receive your own gifts. For as we each learn to receive our own love for ourselves, we free ourselves to both give more love to and receive more love from others.
