Love Yourself


To all the Powerful, Strong, and Beautiful Women out there, I encourage you to love yourself.  Know that we can overcome any challenges.  Let’s continue to love, lift, and empower each other.

You need to love yourself before you can look outside your soul for others to love you and make you happy. Unknown

Never give up on anyone and that includes not giving up on yourself. Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Self-esteem means knowing that you are the dream. O. Winfrey

Demonstrate love by giving it to yourself.  And as you do, you will attract others in your life who will love you without conditions.  Unknown

The prerequisite to love others is to love yourself. If you don’t have a healthy respect for who you are, if you don’t learn to accept yourself, faults, and all, you will never be able to properly love other people.  J. Osteen.

For a long time, I thought I had to be a certain way for others to love me. Then I realized something was missing deep inside.  I started being true to myself and doing things that I love and more importantly, I started accepting, loving myself with all my flaws.  I discovered a sense of freedom, and people that really mean the world to me love me the way I am.

Have you taken time to love and care for yourself? Do you have a quote for self-love?  I would love to hear from you.

I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, and a nurse. Most importantly, I am passionate about life. I always give my best to anything that I decide to do. I believe taking a risk to fulfill your dream can be rewarding.


  1. I think as I’ve gotten older I have learned this as well. Learning to be myself has meant that the relationships I have with others are deeper and more meaningful. There might not be as many relationships, but the ones I have are quality!

  2. I’ve been learning this lesson over and over again throughout my life. Each time I learn it sticks a little longer. This is a great reminder.

  3. I LOVE that you shared a quote from Dieter F. Uchtdorf!!! He is one of my favorite people and has such an amazing story. Are you LDS? 🙂 love this post!

    • No, Amy, I am not LDS, but I do believe every day, you find someone, something, a quote to impact your life. That day, I found those quotes which made me reflect on my life and share with you.

  4. Great post! It is important to love others, but it is also important to love yourself. How you love (or don’t love) yourself affects how you are towards another person.

  5. I do take time for myself but, I think you have to make it really intentional to make an impact. I do believe if you feel happy you emit happy.

  6. It can take time and experience to realize that you can’t change who you are for anyone. I learned this in college, and have been accepting more and more since becoming a mother. My husband and my boys love me how I am, and they are the most important, so why would I change who I am for anyone else?

    • Yes, Stephanie, it’s a journey and in my opinion, once we reach that self-love, we will appreciate others and able to love as well.

  7. This is such a powerful post! I so agree that self-love is so important, especially when it comes to attracting other people. We definitely teach others how to love us based on how we love ourselves.

  8. Self love is so important! thank you for the beautiful reminder today. I think I will add

  9. Wisdom definitely comes with age! I hope my little girl learns self love sooner than I did. For me lately self love has been about nutrition. Not worrying about how my post party body is different than it was before, and just being kind to my body and nourishing it with the best food. ❤️

  10. That is great, Jenna. By loving and taking care of yourself, your daughter will have the greatest example to follow.
