“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
~ Lucille Ball
I chose to share this quote this week because it resonates so soundly with me and the journey I have faced these last few years. I could tell you how difficult chronic illness has been and that it has nearly destroyed my at times to face this new body that never seems to do what I want it to or what I need it to. But I can also tell you that as a result of these hurdles I have learned unrelenting patience and acceptance. I know now that I must love myself for who I am and who I have become, not who I was. In doing so I not only allow my own peace and progress, but I offer it to those around me in the form of strength an happiness. It is through embracing my own self-worth that I have accomplished a life full of love. I wish this and so much more for each of you!
