A major component of and result of the lovingME lifestyle is taking great care of yourself. I say component and result because at first it is a conscious decision and over time it is just what is and what happens. That can and will mean different things for different people and at different times in our lives. Knowing and growing in understanding of yourself is a never-ending process. As you go deeper, things change, priorities shift and choices become much easier or even automatic.
Think about something that you love, some physical object now or in the past. It may be your wedding ring, your Shelby Cobra, your baseball card collection, whatever. Now, when you got that thing and knew how much you loved it, how did you treat it? Was it hard to take care of it? Was it an option not to care for it properly? Was it difficult not to make decisions that would put it in harm’s way? No. Not at all. It was easy. Non-negotiable.
As you love yourself more fully and you know yourself and what helps you or hurts you, it is like that. You can no longer continue to do the things that hurt you or hold you back. Even if they feel good. Even if they taste great. Even if they were on sale. Even if it is easier.
