The Greatest Love is For Yourself

Valentine's Day, the day of love, is fast approaching. As we all scramble to figure out what gifts to buy our husbands & children, what restaurant we will be going to dinner at, what special things we can do for the ones we love to show that we care, I feel like most of us forget who the most important person to give love to is. Yourself.

'The Light That Shines' a story for all from InBedWithSue.com on Vimeo.

This is on the surface a documentary about a woman fighting cancer, but underneath all that, there is a powerful message that is meant for everyone. The importance of loving yourself; no matter how you look, how healthy you are, or what your life is like right now. Everyone struggles and everyone has their own burdens to bear and paths to walk, but we all have a choice. A choice to feel sorry for ourselves (even though we have every right to) and be depressed about our situations, or to stand up, brush ourselves off and face our trials feeling beautiful, empowered, and alive.

Thanks and awe go to Sue Bryce and Hailey Bartholomew for creating this work of art. If I end up creating something even half as breathtaking as this in my life, I will consider it my masterpiece.
