Enormously significant

Self-love 1.2.2012

Sometimes I feel enormously insignificant. Sometimes I feel so small that I feel like my thoughts, visions and dreams don’t matter. No matter how much I take on, or try to change in the world, it makes no difference. Everyone has these thoughts at least one time or another and I can guarantee that if one person shared with you how they saw you it would change your whole mindset. I log onto Facebook and see the following from a dear friend Susie Lukens: because you are wonderful and important to me.

Such a small but powerful phrase with so much meaning that just warmed my spirit. Even though I am one of 7 billion people in the world there is a least one person who thinks I am still just as important. Susie and I haven’t known each other since kindergarten and we are not beside each other every waking moment, but she is someone who I can call on and I know she will be right there no matter what. So thank you Susie, my Vice President for always being so loving and supportive.

It’s such a joy to have friends that you know will be around for a lifetime. Aristotle said: who would choose to live without friends even if they had every other good thing and I totally agree. My friends have been there for me when I was at my worst! I could never feel insignificant around them. I mean look at them!

Each of these people has been placed in my life for a reason. My wonderful friend Lila Miller told me that I am an extraordinary woman and to never forget it! “Never let yourself stop you from reaching your dreams, because you have what it takes to make all of them come true.” My friends are my dreams that have come true! I am surrounded by people who will never think of me as small, insignificant or powerless.

I am enormously significant to them and they are enormously significant to me,

so let it be that we all are friends for eternity.

This is dedicated to anyone I have ever called friend especially Da Annex!


About jaelisawesome

I am currently a senior at Randolph College, founded as Randolph-Macon Woman's College in 1891, majoring in Political Science: International Relations with minors in Spanish and Studio Art. Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia I believe that I have significant contributions to make to the world of diplomacy and US foreign policy. As Student Government President I am the liaison between the students and the faculty and administration, as well as the student representative to the Board of Trustees. I also serve as the Co-President of an all female a cappella group Songshine. I am known for being involved in any and every aspect at school. Some of my passions include playing on the volleyball and tennis teams, singing in almost every group at my school, performing in my very first musical Spring Awakening in the theatre department to taking orders as a barista at the schools’ coffee shop Main Grounds. After I graduate in May 2012, I aspire to attend the Master of Arts in Political Science with a concentration in European Union Policy Studies one-year, 33-credit graduate program. The intensive, residential program is based wholly in Florence, Italy and results in an MA degree in Political Science from James Madison University. My goal is to spread the Love Warrior Community, meaning more people actively bringing self-love into their lives and into the lives of others, more people accepting and loving themselves as they are and more people empowered to follow their passions and share them with the world. The Love Warrior Community is as strong as those involved. By joining the Love Warrior Community, I have the opportunity to create my own self-love practice, bringing more love into my life and the lives of those around me. I will be able to influence a greater number of people and help them to see their value and worth beyond their bodies.

  1. NICE!!!
    You have developed a great support group of friends!! I bet it must have something to do with the kind of friend you have been as well!
    Isn’t it great to have people in your life who can “mirror” your significance back at you?!
    Thanks so much for sharing how your relationships helped you to get back on track with realizing how lovable you are!

  2. “Never let yourself stop you from reaching your dreams, because you have what it takes to make all of them come true.” — Lila Miller 🙂

    This is SO TRUE!!!! Not only do we have what it takes to make our dreams come true, but we are the only people that can stop them from coming true. I am the only person who can tell myself no. I am the only person who can decide to take action on my dreams or to let them die out.

    We are the only things that are getting in the way from what we want. I am most definitely my worst critic and my best supporter, all wrapped into one. If I could learn to be less self-critical, it would do wonders to my thoughts and in turn, I would amaze myself with what I could achieve, simply by thinking positive, encouraging and supportive thoughts towards myself. 🙂

    I’m excited to start writing self-love posts daily because I know this will feed my inner self-supporter and it will help my self-critic to realize that her beliefs are unfounded.
