Happiness Level Two – Love of Self

The Lord has placed within us an instinctive self-love.  This is unlike the love for God and our neighbor which we actively choose.  Rather, self-love comes to us very easily, in the earliest days of our lives.  Like all of our loves, self-love is healthy when enlightened and ordered by our heavenly Father, who alone knows and loves each one of us perfectly. 

Well ordered self-love is right and natural.
– St. Thomas Aquinas
PRAYER:  I call upon you, God, for you will answer me; bend you ear and hear my prayer.  Guard me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.
APPLICATION:  Today I will be alert to intercept and counter any thoughts that would diminish me or discourage me.
