Life coach Iyanla Vanzant says in her 2000 book Until Today, “Listen Carefully as if someone were whispering into your soul. There is something you must know. It is very important, no, it is imperative that you receive these words into the deepest core of your being. These words are essential to your very existence. They will feed, nurture, and nourish you. They will support, assist, and guide you. When all else fails, these words will give you the strength and courage you need to weather the storm and walk through the fire. These are simple words, yet they are very powerful. If you can accept them in the spirit in which they are given, you will be blessed. Receive these words –LIFE LOVES YOU!
Life loves you enough to live like you, to breathe through you, to express itself through you. Life loves you so much, it does everything in its power to stay in you, to be with you, and allow you to depend on it. Life is, at this very moment, totally and absolutely in love with you! Life wants to look like you, and live as you because it respects and honors all that you are.
When life sees you coming, it gets excited It can hardly contain itself! Life is ready to fill you up, spill over through you and experience the best it has to offer you, as you are. If you were to ask life what it is about you that makes you so loveable, the answer would be simple. You are alive! That is all it takes to make you love, loving, and loveable. Now, isn’t it good to know that you are loved?”
