Published by New World Library
Most of us know that loving ourselves would be a good idea, but we have no clue what that really means. Self-love feels too vast, too esoteric, and frankly like something you should keep under wraps.

This breakthrough book on self-love changes all that by taking you beyond the idea of loving, valuing, and caring for yourself into daring acts that will help you experience it. Christine Arylo provides practical, fun ways to explore and embody the ten branches of self-love every day and in every part of your life. Reading this book is like receiving permission to treat yourself as a best friend would. Imagine having the power to:

• Give to yourself first, without guilt
• Shower yourself with loving words instead of criticism and comparison
• Go for your dreams with conviction and courage
• Choose the situations and relationships that make you happiest
• Discover and explore your deepest thoughts and desires — and act on them

Imagine a World of Love

elcome to a world of love! Come on in, take a seat, and put yourlove glasses on! Rose-colored, heart-shaped, or studded with dia-monds — doesn’t matter. In the land of self-love, we know two things forsure: no one but you is wearing these particular glasses (they are uniquelyyours), and what you are about to see isn’t a fairy tale or a science ctiontale. It’s what becomes possible when you dare to choose self-love.Imagine, if you will, a
world 
in which every girl born on this planet isborn in love with, and stays in love with, herself. A world in which everygirl, throughout the entire span of her life, never feels disconnected fromthe thread of love that makes her feel safe, loved, cared for, and special.Instead of learning to measure (and therefore judge) herself by the exter-nal images and standards that bombard her daily with the subconscious

message “You are not enough,” each girl grows up believing that, regard-less of her accomplishments, body shape, love-life status, or material pos-sessions, she is
more
than enough, just because she is herself. The thoughtthat her unique soul could be measured against and compared to that of another person or an outside ideal would never occur to her. To commitsuch an act on oneself would be, in her mind, insane.Imagine
 generations of girls and women
who never suffer from eatingdisorders, who refuse to tolerate an abusive or toxic relationship in theirlives. Women who take care of themselves rst, without guilt or obliga-tion, rendering exhaustion and the sense of being overwhelmed obsolete,ancient diseases only read about in textbooks. To them the notion thatthey should give and give and give until they have nothing left for them-selves would be as absurd as placing their hands directly into the ame ona hot stove. The girls in this world would know, without a doubt, that inorder to give they must also receive, and self-care would be as natural asbreathing and as everyday as eating.Now, imagine
a girl or woman in your life
whom you love dearly. Whatif she could go her entire lifetime without comparing, judging, or emo-tionally beating herself up? What if her rst reaction was always to bekind and compassionate to herself, to tell herself that she was doing thebest she could? Imagine how much more love and happiness she wouldfeel and, as a result, how much more empowered she would be to live herbest possible life, one that would give
her 
everything her heart and soul
really 
desired — not what she thought she
 should 
have — a life that wouldlet her do and be whatever she chose.What a world that would be! And while this world may not currentlybe the norm for us, this reality is not so far outside of our reach. The
