It’s true what they say, you can’t fully love someone until you love yourself first. The more I fall in love with myself and who I am as a person – the more I love my kids. I used to look at my kids and smile but now I can see them. I can see them in slow motion – I see their beauty, their smiles, their laugh, their joy, their curiosity, their creativity, their desire to learn and grow – I see a reflection of myself. I have learned to really appreciate and value every millisecond I have with them. It’s a beautiful thing. Recovery changed my life. My diagnosis was a blessing in disguise. Without all of it, I would have never felt the way I do in this very moment, holding my kids. 💞
Love yourself first and see the beauty that is all around you.
“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see” – Henry David Thoreau
