Love Yourself, Others and Our Planet
In this week's blog post, our Brighton Store Manager Alessia takes a leap into the meaning of love and what this means to us at WiDEYE...
Love – definition;
A profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
A feeling of warm, personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.
Sexual passion or desire.
“Love is energy, feelings of happiness and inner fulfilment”
Love - Yourself
This isn't a form of narcissism but rather a deeper self awareness and acceptance. The practice of self nourishment in order to flourish in life. It's important to be patient and compassionate to ourselves and to never settle for less than our heart desires… to embrace the things that make us all unique.There is no shame in positive affirmation to ourselves, as it builds strength.
Practising gratitude is a nurturing exercise to bring positivity to the mind. Meditation allows a deeper connection between our internal and external world, as it awakens our mind, body, and soul. It's so important that we try to “treat or body like a temple” by giving it the nourishment it needs with healthy food, rest and exercise to thrive. It's so easy to get caught up in our fast paced and stressful lifestyles that we often do not take the time to slow down and relax ...
Well-being is at the heart of WIDEYE. We aim for our products to bring ease, joy, and happiness.
Love – Each Other
With the world in such disarray, the need for love, peace, and unity is paramount more than ever. Love is a human behaviour, the longing for connection ...we are sociable beings and love is the truest form of happiness and the ultimate euphoria.
“kindness brings about peace. With kindness with love and compassion, with this feeling is the essence of brotherhood, sisterhood, one will have inner peace.” - Dalai Lama
As children growing up and being passed life lessons to help guide us in life, one of the true pearls of wisdom is to treat others how you want to be treated yourself. There is nothing more powerful than the feeling of love...and everyone deserves love.
Love – Our Planet
Our home, a true gift that harbours splendours of life in all forms. It provides us with food, shelter, air, survival, life... with an abundance of beauty beyond words, but sadly throughout time, mankind continues to exploit that privilege.
However, it's not too late! We awoke and continue to unite and fight to protect our beautiful planet!
At Wideye, like lots of wonderful companies these days, we are committed to keeping it green. We see this is as the best way we can show some love to our planet! Whilst we already use natural, ethical, and sustainable sourced ingredients, leaving out nasty synthetics and fragrances. Expanding on our packaging free alternatives is high on the agenda and we have lots of exciting products in the pipeline that we can’t wait to share!
To finish this week's blog post, here are a few of my favourite quotes on love... I’d love to hear yours in the comments below!
