When You Love Yourself
“When You Love Yourself” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi
I have recently come to a deeper realization of what it means to love myself. I have realized that loving myself is the foundation of where everything else comes from. If there is to be some good in my life, the measure of the good will only be in proportion to how much it is that I love myself.
I have said that loving myself is the foundation of where everything else comes from, but in this state of self-love I do not have to worry for anything else to come, because the love that I feel for myself is sufficient enough unto itself.
It is from there that I can truly love other people, because all of my expectations will be burned up in the fire of my own love. And then, that is when I can dance on the corner of the street for no other reason than for how good it feels to be in love.
To love yourself is to accept yourself, just in the way that you are. It is to see that you are the gift you were always wanting, and that the gift of yourself is the one that will satisfy you the most ever, no matter how much you had previously envied the gifts of other people.
Love is perfect. There is no imperfection or corruption in love. So, to love all of yourself is to love your life, your body, and the brain you have been given to experience life with. It is to accept wholeheartedly, the natural gifts and abilities you came equipped with.
When you come to the place where you decide that you are going to love yourself with every ounce of your power, is when life opens up for real, and then you can truly be present in the moment. You can then experience how it is to be a child again, but this time it is different, because you get to be like a child but you have grown up toys to play with.
Are you living consciously?

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi. I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19. In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search. I read voraciously. After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now. And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.
