Love yourself first and everything else falls into line

Lucille Ball

On her BeliefNet blog, Donna Henes offers a collection of quotes about self-love. (This is Self-love month, in case you missed the memo.)

Here are a few of my favorites:

Margo Anand:

Loving yourself…does not mean being self-absorbed or narcissistic, or disregarding others. Rather it means welcoming yourself as the most honored guest in your own heart, a guest worthy of respect, a lovable companion.

Byron Katie:

It’s not your job to like me – it’s mine.

Sophia Loren:

Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.

Lucille Ball:

Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
