For the past week or so, this song, which I haven’t heard in years, was humming in my head. I found myself singing it on the balcony, in the shower, in bed, outside, I just couldn’t get it out of my head!!

Then it dawned on me… the whole time I used to listen to this song I used to associate it to a “lover” in my life. However, today, I think the Universe is trying to tell me something:


Wow.. have you ever taken a love song and sang it to yourself?  Well.. there is a first for everything, and I guess this is why, suddenly, this SONG kept on nagging me.  So, I followed my intuition’s footsteps and found the video on YouTube.  As I listened, my heart swelled with pure love for myself as I realized there is NO lover on earth that could love me if I do not really, truly, honestly and unconditionally love myself exactly!! EXACTLY the way I am now.

I promise you this….

As I listened intently to the lyrics, I imagined myself singing to my infant self, then my toddler self, my child self, my teen self, my young adult self.. and on and on until now.

BEST gift ever!!

Today, day 12 I give you my song.. Maybe you have your own, if you do, please share it with me in the comment section.

Lets serenade ourselves together!

  1. Here we go! 😀
    Happy, happy to sing!

  2. Wow! What a great reminder for something I so need to practice. It’s so difficult for me to really get in touch with that “little child”.
    Thank-you for inspiring me to practice more….I will have to think of a song.

      Claire, I first started playing with my inner child in the 90″s. Then I forgot about her again… This book Homecoming by John Bradshaw really imprinted some major things which I still use today. The link is below if you are interested.

      When you come up with your love song.. I would LOVE to hear it 🙂

  3. Love this!*singing as I type*

  4. Here’s to lovingly singing to ourselves!!

  5. Great post Kim and great song too! You are absolutely right, we should love ourselves the way we love another. Let’s put “us” first! 🙂
