To Be Loved

I like to be loved. Some people go great lengths to not be loved. There was a time I thought I didn’t deserve love but then over time I realized I deserved love just as much as anyone else did. I’m not ashamed to admit I want to be adored and appreciated. It doesn’t have to be by everyone. Heck, a strong three or four people would be plenty. It’s weird to write it, but I just wanted to humbly admit it. Don’t we all want to be adored and loved?

I can be a lot to ask others especially when they haven’t learned to love themselves yet. So instead of placing the responsibility of being loved on those around me, I do it for myself. I try my best to intentionally love myself daily especially the little things like meal planning, journaling, writing. I also designate Sundays for my self love day. It’s not always easy but I do know everything works out much better when I set time aside to intentionally love me. I know for a fact I’d choose me because I’ve worked my ass off to become someone I want to be around.

I liked to be loved, so that’s what I do.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
