Loving Your Self

Loving your own self does not mean ignoring your imperfections or being selfish. It does not mean that you say, “I am perfect and don’t need to change.” Loving yourself is not a selfish act. It does not imply that you must ignore the needs of others. Nor does loving yourself involve doing so with arrogance. Instead, to love yourself involves self-awareness. Self-love means you pay attention to your feelings, your perspective. You are fully aware of your own needs while recognizing the needs of others. If you do not feel fulfilled within, how can you properly reach out and become deeply fulfilling to others? (Neellan Nanwani, Speaking Tree)

One of the hallmarks of a complete and integrated personality is the ability to love one’s self. While it may sound like a simple thing, loving one’s self embraces all aspects of our personhood. One of them is self care at a physical material level. Along with taking care of our body and our health, we also need to take care of our appearance. To some extent, this need is built into us genetically as a survival trait. In order to feel good about ourselves, to attract the right kind of people and energy into our lives, we need to look good.

This premise is the starting point of my journey as a home beautician and blogger. It is my intention to share with you my tips, recommendations, and reviews in order to help you discover the beauty that is lying hidden within you. It is my hope that this blog will help you actualize your fullest potential and find the happiness and success that you chose to come into being for.

Though I have made a beginning by myself, it is not something I can accomplish alone. Do subscribe to this blog using any of the methods in the sidebar, share this blog with your friends and family, and participate in the discussions in the comments threads. I also invite posts from you on the broad subject of personal grooming, beauty, and make-up.
