“Often we are reluctant to promote self-love mostly because we confuse it with selfishness. Since we are humans, we ought to have a healthy love for ourselves; it is from this fount that love flows out to others.” ~ Mason Olds
Are you running yourself ragged? Are you over-extending yourself? Are you setting aside time to recharge? Are you distancing yourself from the chaos? Are you finding a reason to smile? Are you giving yourself grace? Love starts inside, from within. You don’t always have to come last on your list of priorities. Join us for a special 14-day Self-Love series and find new ways to say “I love me!”
Todays tip is: Recite positive affirmations.
The mind is a powerful thing. We don’t always realize the impact our thoughts can have. When you look in the mirror, what thoughts come to mind? Do you find the flaws and focus on them? I think if we were all honest for a minute, we’d admit that far too often we speak negatively towards ourselves. “I’m not strong enough. I can’t do this. No one would find this attractive. I’ll never be like her.”
STOP. Don’t sabotage yourself like that. Start telling yourself the story you want to be a part of. Use positive language; speak truth over yourself. Try these…
I attract positivity and happiness.
- I think in abundance, not scarcity.
- I am secure in who I am.
- I am present, patient, and calm.
- I am becoming a better me every day.
Go one step further… write these down and reply them back to me. Recite them daily! Watch and see the magic happen!
