buddha-self-love

Self sacrifice

  • the giving up of one’s own interests or wishes in order to help others or to advance a cause. 

Selfish

  • having or showing concern only for yourself and not for the needs or feelings of other people

Selfing

  • an important ‘loving action’ that can help us to live mindfully and develop a healthy relationship with the most important person in our life, ME. (definition by Soraya Saraswati)

This is not my first time in the MKMMA.  I have learned a lot but there is always something new to learn.  My mindset and blueprint has been changed but there is one more major tweek I need to accomplish.  It was addressed in this last webinar and I’m sure I heard it before but it is resonating more clearly to me.  What stood out to me more than the shapes and cards this time was the work selfing.  I have lived my life with the thought that putting myself first was wrong.  It was the teaching of my childhood and into my adulthood.  If you were to put yourself first you were being selfish.  So I have lived placing others and their problems ahead of what I desire and want in life.  In my confusion over the definitions I have skipped from being selfish to self-sacrifice leaving me in a state of frustration and unhappiness.  So my focus in the week is the word selfing and how it will work for me.  It is the answer I need at this point.

To love and care for myself and my best interests is primary to my happiness and bliss. There is no wrong or selfishness in it.  It is the best gift I can give to myself and to those I love.  No guilt in it.  The best emotion ever.  Love.
