Do you believe it? Do you believe you are enough, and always will be enough? I know what it’s like. I’ve been there. I’ve looked in the mirror with thoughts running through my mind about all the things that are wrong with me. Not just physically either; mentally, emotionally. It’s hard. It’s hard to look in the mirror and not see someone you can love.
When was the last time you looked in the mirror and said kind words? When was the last time you encouraged yourself like you do your kids, your spouse or your best friend? Do you say things to yourself that you’d never want to say out loud in front of someone else?
Today is a great day to change that. Here are 3 easy steps to help your self talk start to change.
• Today, take a minute, look into the mirror and say 3 good things about yourself.
Don’t just stand there though. Look into your beautiful eyes. Look and see who is in there. See who you can find that is behind the pain or hurt. Find her. She needs love from the woman standing there looking at her.
• Notice when that negative self-talk creeks in.
It won’t always be while looking in the mirror. Whenever you catch negative self-talk, change your thought. Tell yourself 3 good things about yourself.
When you start to feel love for yourself, you will start to feel love more fully for others as well. When you can look in the mirror and smile at the woman looking back with genuine gratitude, you life will forever be changed.
• Appreciate your for being you!
Be grateful for who you are! You’re amazing, and needed and belong! I know. I’ve been there. I’ve learned to be kind to myself. Am I 100% at this? Of course not! I have days where I’m frustrated with how I look or feel or am not accomplishing. However, most of the time, I can look at myself, in my eyes and appreciate who is looking back at me. She’s been through a LOT. She’s been through tough stuff, and is TRYING. I’m trying. That’s literally all that matters.
If you’re trying to do a little better and be a little better each day, then you’re doing amazing!! Don’t be too hard on yourself. You’re more precious than you can imagine.
