Happy almost Valentine’s Day to all of you!
I spoke last week about me, climbing on a stool and looking into the mirror as a little girl, and saying, “I hate you”!
Have you ever done that?
What do you say now, today, when you look in the mirror to yourself?
Self criticism is not self-love.
There was a time when I actually practiced looking deep into my own eyes in the mirror and saying “I love you”. I remember it wasn’t easy. There were lots of tears for quite some time.
I didn’t really love myself then and needed to practice doing this in the mirror often. Do you too, need to practice looking in the mirror and saying “I love you”?
I know today, that what we say to ourselves, will become our reality.
So, why not practice saying positive things daily to yourself, even if you don’t believe it at that moment?
A belief is only a thought I continue to think. Yes, that’s right, a belief is a thought we continue to think.
So why not begin saying positive, hopeful things to yourself and visualizing all the things you really would like your life to be, both inside of you and outside?
I today rarely ever say or think negative things about myself. It has taken lots of practice switching it all around to loving, positive, thoughts and feelings. It can be achieved though!
Since I love and respect myself, I have so much more to offer to others. I am able to really listen to them and be thrilled for them as they are growing and becoming the people God meant them to be.
A friend gave me a wonderful picture with this saying on it:
Aging, she discovered was just another word for “Growing”——
and she was (FINALLY!), at last, growing into the person she always meant to be………
I have this on my wall in my bathroom, where I can see it every morning and every night.
Are you consciously growing into the person you always meant to be?
If not, I encourage you to consciously begin with the exercise in the mirror that I did.
Here’s to loving yourself and becoming who you were meant to be!
