ready for love

I am ready for love…words to live by…

Wow. I never thought I would share those words in a public forum…but today is a new day, and new opportunity and a new perspective on life and love. I do not just mean the love I have for the man in my life, but the love I have for myself, my body, my spirit and my attitude towards myself. There are many moments I have the choice to speak to myself through a filter  of love or a filter of criticism and time and time again I listen to the judgmental shit rather than focusing on the positive thoughts towards myself. I am certain there are reasons for this, one of which is always striving to be a better version of myself each day, but I rarely honor the good in myself. It is madness really, and can be crippling in my relationship to myself which in turn effects the relationships I have with others.

I am committing to changing that switch in my heart and in my head. I am imperfect and there will be times that I will let those automatic negative thoughts get the best of me, but I am embarking upon a journey to stop that BS and learn to love me. Boom.

If  you have not heard this song “Ready For Love” by India.Arie, here is a live version that is spectacular.

  1. Angela if you saw the love that others had for you through your eyes you would not need to ever question yourself, ridicule yourself, or be in a space without positivity. You are a WONDERFUL person and I BELIEVE IN U as do many others. You do what you do better than anyone else. And don’t for one second start being hard on yourself for being hard on yourself. Bottom line is – we all do it. We show more respect for strangers at times then for the ones we love. And believe it or not you do love yourself and that is a good thing- just at times you may not treat yourself the way you deserve to be treated just like we do with our own family and friends. So I tell you this ANG Leigh start to show the love You have in your heart (and I know it’s there) for yourself. The love shall set you free 😉

    • you made me cry…..wow….thank you Chris. You are the bestest friend. Having you in my corner has made my life so much better, seriously. I have no idea what I would do without you…

  2. Angela in the short time I have known you, it is clear to me that everyone around you loves and respects you for the things that you do and the person you are. Everyday through your actions you change people’s lives and make them not only fall in love with you but with themselves. So if you are ready for the love you wrote about all you have to do is open your heart and not your eyes and you will find the seed of love has already grown roots in your soul
