A year ago today I decided to go on a journey. I decided to put the past in the past and decided that I wasn’t the husband, father, and person I wanted to be.
I hit rock bottom in all areas of life.
I decided to love myself. I could be anyone I wanted to be.
I hated myself, but I convinced myself that I was worthy of better.
I’ve learned that when you infinitely, unconditionally, and unapologetically love yourself, you cause yourself no harm, and you desire to take care of your mind, body, and spirit daily…
…and that gives others around you permission, and reason, to do the same.
Others thrive when you thrive. Others want to be better too.
People love seeing others succeed while setting an example.
In order to give my children and marriage a better environment to grow and heal, I stopped focusing on healing them. I was broken, and I was breaking them as well.
I started focusing on healing myself first.
Some view this as selfish. I will express that this is the most loving thing I have ever done.
I couldn’t take care of others while neglecting myself. I ran out of love, energy, and desire.
I put my mask on first.
I love myself more than my past, my pain, my suffering, food, alcohol, and the judgment of others.
Because of that our world has changed.
I practice daily mind, body, and spirit development, which allows me to feel the love I have for myself, which then allows me to fully, truly, and deeply love my gorgeous wife Angie Kitko and children Katie Kitko and Meagan Kitko.
Because I’m leading by example, they are able to do the same. I encourage them to follow their happiness…do what makes them feel fulfilled inside.
I encourage them to love themselves first.
I am convinced that searching for true happiness will generate good decisions, not harmful decisions.
I trust their true nature.
The physical aspect will only resolve itself after the internal feelings are at a level you truly deserve. Love yourself, first… then everything else falls into place.
You and your family deserve the very best you have to offer…
Today, I encourage you to reach out if I can support you or encourage you. I now help others avoid or overcome the same mistakes, and find the self-esteem, self-worth, and self-love I’ve found.
Mind-set + Heart-set + Physical-set = A love affair with your true nature.
Love yourself first, and the rest will follow…
