Essential Self Care Quotes

Let Your Light Shine“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a divine child. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the light that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

~ Marianne Williamson (Excerpted from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Philosophies of a Course in Miracles)


“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

~ Rumi


We Grow in Dimensions“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”

~ Anais Nin


“Love is the biggest eraser I know. Love erases even the deepest and most painful memories because love goes deeper than anything else. Do you want a life of pain or one of joy? The choice and power are always within you. Look into your eyes, and love you and the little child within.”

~ Louise Hay


Reflection of Self Belief“Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth.”

~ Iyanla Vanzant


“Until you make peace with who you are, you’ll never be content with what you have.”

“Self-love isn’t always so poetic; sometimes it’s a nice big triple back flip kick in the ass. You’ve got to call yourself on your own nonsense; on the incredibly efficient way you can be self-destructive.”

~ Steve Maraboli


Let Your Life Change“What is self loving today may not be self loving tomorrow. What you want today may not be what you want tomorrow. What brings you joy today may not be what brings you joy tomorrow. This is why life changes when you keep going in the direction of self-love, desire and joy. But the answer is not to deny yourself love, deny yourself your wants and deny yourself joy. The answer is to let your life change.”

~ Teal Scott


“Loving yourself isn’t vanity. It is sanity.”

Beautiful“People always ask me, ‘You have so much confidence. Where did that come from?’ It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl…it doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.”

~ Gabourey Sidibe


“Step number one for changing the entire world is falling in love with it as it already is. The same is true for changing yourself.”

Cannot Fail at Being Yourself“Remind yourself that you cannot fail at being yourself.”

“Listen to your being. It is continuously giving you hints; it is a still small voice. It does not shout at you, that is true. And if you are a little silent you will start feeling your way.

Risking all to be oneself, that’s what maturity is all about.”

~ Osho
