They say a new moon is coming through tonight. Actually here is exactly what is supposed to happen:
“ During this phase the Moon is too close to the sun in the sky to be visible. The moon rises and sets with the sun and is not present in the night sky. ”
I think this is absolutely awesome. New moon for me, always means new things, and new lessons of this ongoing journey called life.
Let me tell you what I learned this week. But, let me ask you a question first.
Do you know what your primary love language is?
Mine happens to be : QUALITY TIME.
(yes yes I love gifts, acts of service, and words of affirmation… love them all… but… not as much as time.)
The love language game is strategically designed to be learned for one’s significant other. However, I cultivated this week that it’s important to practice our own love languages on ourselves. Yes it is important to learn another person’s love language for the sake of a healthy relationship; yet, as an individual, it’s important to practice what you preach on yourself.
I love time. Especially when it’s quality. The reason I love it so much is because I understand that time is something that you can never get back. In my heart, time is the most precious asset we are awarded in this life.
*Before humbling myself, and doing my inner work, I used to have a serious problem with patience. It is still something I’m learning and adapting too, but I can say, I’m further along with my growth process and patience than I ever was before. *
Your love language is important to you, because you owe yourself that much. Your happiness is yours, and as much as society has tried to make us believe that someone else can grant us happiness; it is the total opposite. You give yourself happiness, it all starts from within.
My takeaway for this week is that you take the love language quiz, but apply it to yourself.
The quiz asks questions based off of you having a partner, but apply those questions to:
As the new moon sets with the sun tonight, set yourself up with your love language, and let it be visible in the way you treat yourself going forward.
