How much love do you have for yourself?
We all have good and bad days, that’s a given, but we, myself included, often fall short of recognizing our own strengths and we somehow let our weaknesses, what ever they are, get the better of us. Today we are going to be motivated to make one small change. It’s a very easy change to make and for some reason we block ourselves from receiving it.
Today and every day this week, I challenge you to go look in a mirror and really look at yourself with LOVE in your heart. Don’t look at yourself with flaws and with the “what if” attitude or self-doubting mentality. Look at yourself and think of the many accomplishments you have achieved over the course of your life. You should be proud.
Many of you reading this are Mom’s! That means, you have done many things, things you probably could have done without, but you still did it! We are so hung up on body image and the lack there of, but you have got to remember what your body has/had been through to have those lil humans running around the Earth. You want your kiddos to be proud of their bodies, we all do. Why is it so easy for us to motivate them to love themselves, but we struggle to love our own selves.
When you look in the mirror, tell yourself:
I am worthy of my own love
You have no problems telling other people you love them, but how often do you tell yourself, “I love you, simply for being you?”. Say that mantra above this whole week. Say it over and over again, multiple times a day if you have to. Say it as many times as it take for you to believe that you are worthy of your own love.
When you find that you have accepted your love, I am pretty sure you (we/me) will start to see a shift in how we view ourselves and our bodies. We may even love ourselves enough to spend a few extra minutes making smarter food choices or spending 10 more minutes working out. We may even push ourselves in a way that we have never done before.
What have you got to lose? Love yourself today and always!
