Why I feel so loved and loving lately

By Paul D. Hanley


 Sometimes I wallow in the bad things people have done to me. Or I dwell on poor choices I have made. But I feel so cared for now. So special.

Why have I been feeling so loved lately?  Well, let me tell you:

I have been meditating on tangible evidence of love for me. Stuff I can feel.

For one thing, I take gifts I have received and think about what they say about others’ feelings for me.

Then I hold them in front of me and pull them towards me, receiving them.

Next I see them continuing into my shame core...the center of me that can feel so unloved, abandoned, betrayed, resentful … evil.

I do this with things I have bought myself to affirm my self love. What do these say about my self-care ability - my self-esteem growth?

I’m not a Christian, but I’ve learned much spirituality from the Bible. So I hold it and meditate on it. Not as a token of God’s love for me ... but as a GIANT MONUMENT to how much the universe loves screwed up me. Of course gratitude to Jehovah wells up in my heart … and sometimes in my eyes...! Of course I love other people more…

I do it with texts and memories ... Thanks to ALL OF YOU for those!

Thanks be to God for this idea!

This is now a couple-of-minute routine every morning... Loved all day!

You are loved too. Please affirm that you KNOW you are loved. Then you WILL feel loved.  I promise.
