The greatest gift you will ever receive is the gift of loving and believingin yourself. Guard this gift with your life. It is the only thing that will ever truly be yours. Tiffany Loren Rowe So many people associate the concept of self-love with narcissism which actually is a lack of self-love! But truly loving ourselves as God loves us is a compassionate place to be in our lives. Our love of self provides the passion to be with that other person in a loving way! So today I give myself permission to love myself as I would love my neighbor! LOL! That truly is a gift from the Almighty! When I Love Myself, it gives me strength, courage, focus, and determination that I so much need in order to Break FREE of Addiction for LIFE! This is especially true during NML when we aren't living the challenge minute by minute but are blindsided by our Addictive Minds out of nowhere, or after a tragedy or great misfortune such as losing a job, or even, yes, after an extraordinary Victory when we think that we "deserve a sickerette!" What I deserve my FREEDOM! I deserve to live LIFE Abundantly as My Creator intends - Smoke FREE for LIFE! And I LOVE Myself enough to recognize the paradox and make the Correct DECISION! So just for TODAY I will LOVE Myself as I would Love my neighbor! Who would wish Addiction on ANYBODY? Surely we DESERVE Addiction FREEDOM!
