Chapter Excerpt........

In Your Beginning

So, exactly what is “self-love?”

To love yourself means to wholly accept yourself just as you are. Loving yourself involves knowing that you deserve your own time, patience, and effort

When you love yourself, you tend to yourself emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually.

If we’re going to maintain a balance of our mind, body, and soul; we all need to demonstrate our love for ourselves.  Now, this book is the first in a series of life discovery journals.

Out of all the topics that I could have done, I chose self-love. I chose to illuminate self-love because what I know now is that Survivors of rape, abuse and trauma often struggle with self-love.  As a Survivor of child rape (child sexual abuse), I identify with that struggle to experience authentic, genuine, and consistent self-love.

Chapter Excerpt..........

Self-love Journaling

So why journaling?  How does journaling arouse self-love? You see, a journal can serve as a wonderful tool for not only recording your life, but also for helping to find solutions to life’s challenges.

Consider these benefits of keeping a journal:

  1. A journal creates focus. Few of us really take the time to examine our lives. We commonly feel that we either don’t have the time, it won’t be beneficial, or it’s simply too uncomfortable. By regularly making an appointment with yourself to work with your journal, you can create the necessary focus to make positive changes in your life.

  2. A journal forces you to see the truth. We’re all amazing at fooling and distracting ourselves, but when the truth is right before our eyes in black and white, there’s no place to hide.

  3. A journal releases stress. There’s something cathartic about getting your thoughts on paper. Reducing your stress also creates a more effective state of mind for solving challenges.

  4. A journal provides a means of measuring progress and growth. Have you ever seen a friend’s child and noticed how much they’ve grown? You wouldn’t notice the growth if you saw that child every day. Our own personal growth is similar.

Small changes aren’t noticed when you’re exposed to them daily. A journal provides a way of looking back and seeing just how far you’ve come.

A journal can be an effective way to create positive change in your life. Even if you’re skeptical, give journaling a try for a few months and measure the improvement in your life. With regular effort, you’re certain to reap many positive rewards.
