New release - PASSION STRUCK


Self Love: Where We Invest Our Love We Invest Our Life

“In these bodies, we will live. In these bodies, we will die. And where you invest your love, you invest your life.” – Mumford & Sons. This line is one of the most potent lyrics the band has ever written, inspiring this podcast episode on self love.

I believe this quote is about self-love and finding out about yourself and who you are. When we learn to love ourselves, we also express love to others more powerfully and intentionally. You can alter the way you see things, and it is your self-love that helps you become the best version of yourself.

And in case you didn’t already know it, John R. Miles (@john_r_miles) takes your requests for topics on Momentum Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Momentum Friday episodes, drop us a line at [email protected]. Now let’s dive in!

No great feat is achieved without adopting certain positive habits. Similarly, self love also demands the development of such practices that encourage it.
