Why you should love yourself.

A short post about recognizing all the good parts of you.

Love yourself.

Love your body, your mind and your soul.

Love that your body has twists and turns and it’s like your spaceship or sea-ship or the best relationship you’ll ever have because it carries you through this life, down every rocky, bumpy road, and through the best memories that you’ll ever have.

Love your mind. Love that you keep making mistakes, that you keep screwing things up but you keep learning and there isn’t anything that anyone can do to stop it. Love that you keep getting better. Love that that all the nooks and crannies are filled with an endless number of stories and memories- those that haunt you and those that you celebrate; those that have gotten you to where you are now.

Love your soul. Love that you make jokes that only you laugh at. Love that the people who know you and love you can recognize your laughter from just about anywhere. Love that you’re still learning to stop criticizing yourself, because you deserve better. Love that you give people too many chances but it means that you know they’re just trying to live their best lives too. Love that you have a hard time trusting, and love that it’s just something you’re still working on.

Love that all of these things are the things that make you.

Love every part of who you are.

Love your body, your mind and your soul.

Just love you.
