fiercely and fearlessly 

My thoughts this morning are on fierce fearless love. That is how I was loved as a child. 

That is how I love my children. 

Some where along the way I forgot to love myself fiercely and fearlessly. And the forgetting became a habit and the not fiercely and fearlessly loving myself became the norm. 

And I allowed others to not love me well. 

And that was what it was for a very long time. 

That was then. And this is mutha fucking Now
I have survived and now it is time to thrive. 
Moving forward I will and do love me as fiercely and fearlessly as I have loved others. 
I will love me first and foremost. 

I will not allow myself to not be well loved. 

I will forgive myself the way I forgive others. 
And the opinions and approval of others are neither desired or required. 
That is all.
