Self-Love Gives You Freedom

These past few days have reminded me how much Self-Love does for me in my day-to-day life.

Some days are hard, but by practicing self-love I’m able to just be me. I love being cancer free, and I definitely love being disorder free, not hooked up to feeding machines! For me, Self-Love gives me freedom.

Self-Love gives you a freedom that is not explainable, sometimes unfathomable, and most of all, life-changing. Looking at who I was before I started practicing self-love on a daily basis, I was sad, broken and needed to be freed from myself. I eventually learned to roar back. I eventually learned tools that keep me free. I eventually learned to embrace my story, my trials and my journey.

I was talking to someone about how the power of our stories, our backgrounds and our lives are all different. Some are rooted in self-love, religion, yoga and many other things. We all have those times when we need that one thing that sets us free from the things that hold us back.  I want to cling to things like self-love, great friendships, even chocolate (yuuuum).

Being who I want to be, not what others want to see. Being true. Being unique. Being free.  I have learned time is too short to be something I am not.

Today I want us all to remember that freedom is not letting your yesterday affect your today. Live, Laugh and Love. Live free. Laugh uncontrollably. Love unconditionally.


Radically Love,

One Response to Self-Love Gives You Freedom

  1. Dear Lila,
    I am so grateful for your recovery for so many reasons. Reading your interview with Leah was so inspiring. You have chosen the Self-Love Diet, and have not let your past experiences define who you are. Your recovery is not only a blessing for you, but also a light to guide anyone else who is on the same path. Lila, when I was writing Self-Love Diet; The Only Diet That Works, I was hoping the information in it would be helpful to others. Hearing how the messages in the book have made all the difference for you is a dream come true for me. I am so proud to have you as our Love Warrior Intern.
    Blessings on your Daily Self-Love Diet Practice,
