What are You in Love With?

On one of the electronic forms I participate in, my best friend, Jen Halterman, posted this:

I have been on a fun journey lately and I wanted to share here and invite you all to share also…
I brought to my awareness that I often say to people, “I love that about you” or “I love _______ about you”. As I was receiving appreciation for my words one day I realized that I do that to the outside world and yet inwardly I was criticizing me consistantly… thus a new experiment began. I began saying to myself “Jen, I love _______ about you” or “Jen, I love that about you”, as the weeks wove on I began to notice a familiar sensation in my body. It was the feeling of falling in love, the only difference was it was WITH MYSELF! I was quite surprised that such love and gentleness could reside within me and that it involved me and only me. I also began to notice that I was hearing from people appreciations for the very things I was appreciating about myself. I began to do the things that matched the feeling of being in love with me. This discovery has led to some great adventures and some very funny experiences.

So, here I am sharing somethings I love about me this morning and I invite you all to share somethings you love about yourselves too. It is nice to appreciate each other, but I am requesting that you appreciate even one thing about yourself today and tomorrow and so on and so on.

Falling in love is a great place to play, will you play with me?

So, I’ve been playing along with her and having the funnest time doing so. I decided, with her permission, to bring it out here into my blog and play here too. I invite you, if you feel moved to do so, to comment with what you are in love with about yourself, your life, your creations.

Here, I’ll go first…

Angie, Angie, ANGIE!
Oh my! Girl! I am SO loving your ability to play and explore. I’m so loving how you have listened to feedback, tried it on, gotten curious about the sticky ones and have kept seeking more. I’m loving the connection you are experiencing with yourself and how that is showing up outside of you. I’m loving that you felt surprised when your friend told you last night that he thought you looked absolutely beautiful and radiant from the inside out. I’m loving that you feel good inside and hadn’t even stopped to think about the outside!!! LOL

  1. Angie,I am in love with you. I love that you are feeling your feelings on such a BIG scale. I love that you have co-created relationships that bring stuff into your world to look into and face into and go through even when you're judging yourself "not ready to do that yet!" I'm loving that you were surprised by the depth of sad this morning, cried unexpectedly and can now feel the salty residue on your cheeks. I love you.

  4. Angie,I'm in love with you. I'm loving how you are playing more and in situations that you would "push" through in the past. I'm loving being witness to the magnetic pull of you! I'm loving how you are beginning to use that pull for poweful, positive self-uplifting stuff!!!

  5. Angie,I'm loving you for seeking out and receiving support yesterday when your sadness got so huge and seemingly overwhelming. I'm loving that you woke up this morning EXCITED to treat yourself to movement, healthy foods and nutritional supplements that are supporting you in your quest to live a healthy life.

  7. Angie,I'm loving you. And that is SO cool! I'm loving you. I'm loving you. I'M LOVING YOU!I love how you sat down and completely wrapped up that project for Megabeth so that your plate is clear to play in JenGie. I love how you have craved chocolate the last two afternoons and have opted out of feeding the craving because the ultimate, end-of-the-line goal is to be fully alive and, right now, you know that chocolate detracts from that path.I love you!

  8. Angie,I'm in love with you! I love that you are sticking to FLT with a lot of love and joy. I'm loving that this has been an easeful and exciting process for you. I especially love that Dr. Redstone called you The Poster Child for FLT! Way to go! I LOVE that your persistence and self-love has resulted in a 3-pound loss this week!
