    I found that I was grieving for a love that I had lost.
    I found that I had sacrificed a lot and at a great cost.
    My happiness was stifled.
    My joy was in restraints.
    My high spirited ways were masked by hateful ways.
    Lord, knows that wasn't me.
    My nights were filled with question marks,how could
    this happen to me.
    To many questions on my mind, some of them the
    answers I would never find.
    So I did come to one conclusion and it finally made
    some sense!
    Now brother's I still love you and I will never give up
    on ya!
    But, I got to love me first!
    The God in me comes first without saying!
    But I must love me first!
    This lifes a one shot deal and can not be
    rehearsed.
    I cannot get a do over, but my sins have been
    erased.
    So, I will start with the Loving myself from A to Z.
    I will
    A lways treat myself like the queen that I am
    B e kind to myself and others and consistently so.
    C onsider my needs and fulfill them for I cannot be all to everyone.
    D edicate my life to delicious living in spirit, mind and body.
    E levate my conciousness so that my mind will be prepared.
    F orget those who have hurt me and forgive them and myself.
    G ive myself something special for each and every special day.
    H ave an open mind and attitude, with a warm smile on my face.
    I gnore negative imagery when some media madness says that I don't fit the mold.
    J ustly seek justice for all those who are opressed and that includes myself.
    K eep myself sacredly and specially secure.
    L ove me unconditionally, before I try to love somebody else!
    M ake a covenant with myself to accept nothing but the best for me and never settle for less.
    N ever look down on others in order to feel good about myself.
    O pen my heart and my mind.
    P ursue knowledge and wisdom everyday.
    Q uietly seek the Lord and be about is business.
    R est my body and rejuvenate so that I am fit for all I do.
    S tay in the word and on top of things.
    T riumphantly seek my lifes work and dreams.
    U nleash the beauty that is within me and unravel tangled lies of deceit.
    V ictoriously praise the Lord for the Battle is not mine it is the Lords.
    W ork until my day is done.
    X -cuse those who do not understand his righteousness and seek to share his love and x-ude his perfect Holiness.
    Y outhfully live a life full of energetic fervor, you are as young as you feel.
    Z ealously seek the best life that my savior has planned for me.

    Love myself ....and let other's know that it's ok, to feel that way!
    Love myself ....with and without a man and do it everyday!

    Thank you Rich, I hope that others will read this , it is so important

    It is important to do this as we live our lives and try to get the love that we need , often we don't get the love that we need cause we have failed to love ourselves adequately. It's easy to choose wrong when we don't love ourselves to the utmost.

    Blessings On Ya House!:D

    Oh my brother's do you feel my arms embracing you!

    I appreciate you ever so much. I wanted to break it down like never before. It's such a cliche` "Love yourself", but no one bother's to define or outline what they mean. As in my prayers to Father God, I find it is important to be specific, as part of my creative process I like to teach when I can and so this was very fulfilling to me and you my Dearhearts make it all worthwhile.

    Blessings On Ya House!:toast:
