[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Life Loves Me

May I not be blind today to the awesomeness of life - Marianne Williamson

Life loves me- this simple affirmation was given to me two weeks after I
arrived in Manchester to live. I took it, said thank you and didn't think
much of it at all. "Write it down, still it up in your dorm room."

At the time I was living in student housing on campus with my room mate Sue
from Malaysia. (Teachers come in so many different forms) I did it, I stuck
it up on the door and everyday as I left the room to head to University I
would say it out loud, "Life Loves Me" For one year, I passed that door and
said "Life Loves me" no matter what the situation was and I started really
really believing it.

This morning as I sat writing what I was grateful for today I stopped and
said wow life loves me, and I laughed because I haven't said that for a
long time having moved on from Manchester and did not stick it up on any
walls around me. I didn't know where it came from!

I said it because I still believe it, I believe life loves me so much that
it has provided me an opportunity to share with so many people my
experiences, life loves me because I am healthy, I have a mighty crew of
angels who have been supporting me last week, I have a loving family. Life
loves me because it allows me to participate in it everyday, appreciate
nature and live with it. We become what we believe not what we wish and
hope for, but what we truly believe with all our heart!

Life loves you too Peace!
