Love You

No, I didn't say "I love you" (although I do, in an abstract sorta way).

I said, "Love you." As in "Love yourself."

I've said this before: When Jesus said "Love your neighbor as yourself," he assumed you loved yourself.

So how do you do it? (Following on the previous "Secret," in which I claimed to eschew "the loosey-goosey lovey-dovey New-Agey stuff," this might seem kind of funny to you.)

But you love yourself the way you love anyone else. Spend time with you. Send you thoughtful notes. Take a walk with you. Be sweet to you. Cook something nice for you. Let you listen to your favorite song, or watch your favorite show.

Buy you a present.

Let you know that you are important to you. It may seem selfish, self-indulgent. In fact, it is. But in a good way.

Love you like you've never loved you before.

You'll be happier.
