Speaking of healthy self-love, what I’ve noticed is that I don’t think I have anything worthwhile to say – BUT I DO!!! Here is a woman who struggled a great deal the first half of her life, who is now happy and joyful. I’m a miracle and my story is very inspirational to other people who might be struggling with similar issues.
Loving myself truly and deeply was one of the keys that made my recovery possible. Not superficially but deep inside.
you will be capable of astonishing things: things that will astonish YOU and other people.
Fifteen years ago, when I was in the part of my life that was just about the darkest , I spent a lot of time calling the psychic telephone lines just to hear a friendly, caring voice on the other end of the telephone. One woman made a statement that I’ve never forgotten, “When you learn to love yourself truly and deeply, you will be capable of astonishing things: things that will astonish you and other people.”
She turned out to be completely right, and it’s apparently part of the process that Abraham refers to as well. There’s something magical about healthy self-love.
Today I’ve made a decision to change what I think about myself and my life. I’m allowing myself to completely dream about how I want my life to be. For instance, I bought Christmas gift wrapping paper on sale today in preparation for next Christmas’ gifts for my new family: husband, etc. that is arriving in my life this year. I am a great catch for the new love in my life: sensuous, smart, fun, sparkling, feminine. I love homemaking. I love ballroom dancing. I love the sea and everything about it.
Commenting on homemaking: I’m a closet lover of homemaking who has decided to come out of the closet.
This is all so new! I suppose I can thank network television for being so barren tonight that I made a decision to turn the tube off and try this! It’s all rather confusing at the moment, but I know that I’ll get the hang of this.
I feel excited about telling the new story of my life, as Abraham would put it. I’m listening to a delicious internet radio station called “Sweet Memories” that plays the most charming music. Fred Astaire singing “Cheek to Cheek”. Bing Crosby singing “Let Me Call You Sweetheart”.
Ah, ballroom dancing. What a joy! What a treasure! It makes me feel so incredible, a feeling of euphoria that I’ve never experienced before.
I realize that I’m randomly typing what’s randomly floating through my mind. Practicing until I get the hang of this.
