What’s Love Got to Do With It?!
What better way to begin 2012 than to kick off the year with a 30-Day Self- Love Challenge! This challenge created by Akua Soadwa @akuasoadwa, Founder & Director of Gye Nyame Empowerment Project, gives an opportunity for individuals to choose themselves first. Not to be selfish in loving only themselves, but in the end of the challenge to carry the love they have for themselves and help others.
In just my first week of completing a portion of this challenge, I’ve learned a profusion amount about self-love. From honoring myself through the eyes of my elders, forgiveness, gratitude, and reflections, I’ve created an opportunity for me to commit to myself. Each day you have a chance to become a better person. So, why not start with loving yourself so you can give love to others?!
One of my favorite classic songs is by Luther Ingram, which is titled, If Loving You is Wrong. The first verse says the following:
If loving you is wrong, I don’t wanna be right!
Absolutely deep! Which is why I made this my favorite love quote. But, because this challenge is about self-love the “YOU” is now “ME”.
If loving “ME” is wrong, I don’t wanna to be right!
While this journey has just begun, I look forward to completing the rest of the challenge and seeing what loving me even more will do to help others! In the end, I’m sure I’ll find out “What’s Love Got to Do With It”. 😉
