The greatest love of all

Do you remember when Whitney Houston sang this song in 1985/1986? I was a young adult at that time and whenever this song was playing I was singing from the top of my lungs (only when I was alone – I am so bad at singing). I loved the song, but I had no idea what it was about (to my defense my English wasn’t too good at that time).

On Valentines Day I was listening to a special Playlist when that song came up. And for the first time I fully understood. You have to learn to love yourself. I learned that, and it changed my live completely. I accept my flaws and limitations, I love my body with all its imperfections, and I don’t regret the mistakes I made in live because they brought me here. And it made my love to my family and my friends deeper. Isn’t that weird?

I honestly don’t know how I learned to love myself. Was it the unconditional love of my hubby and my family or the freedom to take long walks in the awesome nature to let your mind wander? Probably a combination of both.

I can’t give you any advice how to get to that point. But keep trying, it is worth it!
