“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.” – Oscar Wilde
Everyday, we’re bombarded by societal messages like these:
You aren’t attractive enough.
You aren’t successful enough.
You aren’t smart enough.
You aren’t trying hard enough.
You aren’t working hard enough.
You aren’t conforming enough.
You aren’t DOING enough.
And rather than feeling motivated, happy and empowered by life, we instead feel misaligned, overwhelmed and confused by it.
Because when we try to live for someone or something outside of ourselves, we end up losing site of our true purpose — to live in alignment with love.
Here are 7 quotes to live by that can help realign your mind, body and soul with love:
1.) “Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” –Mother Teresa
2.) “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

3.) “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” – Lao Tzu
