The Quote Everyone Needs To Read Before Valentine’s Day

Written by: Kat Gal

Valentine’s Day is coming soon. It’s all about love.

I want to take a moment to remind you of one of the most essential and most transformational loves of all: self-love.

If you don’t love yourself, it is more difficult to give and receive love. When you love and take care of yourself, you have more love to give. You have more energy, more happiness and more health to love, be there for and care for your loved ones.

Love yourself so you can love others well.

Here is the most amazing quote on self-love to inspire your self-love journey. It is not only a quote, but it also summarizes WHY self-love is so important, WHAT self-love is and even gives you ideas HOW to love yourself. Just read and let it sink in.

“As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is ‘AUTHENTICITY.’

“As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it and even though this person was me. Today I call it ‘RESPECT.’

“As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it ‘MATURITY.’

“As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it ‘SELF-CONFIDENCE.’

“As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it SIMPLICITY.’

“As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is ‘LOVE OF ONESELF.’

“As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is ‘MODESTY.’

“As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day and I call it ‘FULFILLMENT.’

“As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection ‘WISDOM OF THE HEART.’

“We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know ‘THAT IS LIFE!’”

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
