Love is in our nature. We want to love and to be loved in return.

The problem?

When love is used as a scapegoat. When people believe finding love, finding their perfect partner will solve the unhappiness and discontentment they feel.

I’m guilty of this too. I spent years searching for love in all the wrongs places. Creating romantic relationships out of thin air and desperate for happiness.

But I have realized that if you’re not happy when you find love, the unhappiness you originally felt will start to seep back in as soon as the honeymoon phase is over.

Finding a boyfriend is not the solution. He cannot make you happy if you weren’t already happy. Placing your happiness in someone else’s hands is a huge responsibility. A responsibility that should be yours and yours alone.

It all begins with you.

To find love and happiness you must look within yourself.

Happiness is an inside job. So is love. It’s not out “there”. It’s not something you seek. It’s within you.

If you want to fall in love you must fall madly in love with yourself first. When you love yourself you become all the love you need. You no longer need to look externally to fill a void. You already feel love from within.

And when you do find love your partner will only add to the love and happiness you already feel.

So…

“Do you want to meet the love of your life? Look in the mirror.” Byron Katie

Seriously. Now go to the mirror.

Look yourself in the eyes and say “I love you”.

Keep repeating until you believe it.

Cheers to crazy sexy self-love!

XO, emily
