How are you speaking to yourself? The words you use when you talk to yourself matter.
I’ve wasted the last year being downright mean to myself because I no longer look the way I did in this photo last March. That’s not ok. So I’m changing it.
I’ve started thinking how the person I love most in my life would speak to me about myself. Nana took her last breath looking deeply into my eyes, and I’ve been imagining looking at myself through her eyes in that moment. I realized her words wouldn’t match mine over this past year, and it broke my heart.
How did she see me? I can venture a safe guess and say it’s the exact opposite of how I’ve been seeing myself. She would say I’m passionate, loyal, strong, dedicated, smart, a hard worker and funny as hell. And she would say she’s proud of me. So why am I telling myself otherwise?
It’s hard to love ourselves all the time, even a majority of the time. So try changing your perspective. Look at yourself the way your most cherished loved one looks at you. I promise it will change things for you. It already has for me.
Tell me something you love about yourself!! 👇🏼 Even if it’s something small. Tag a friend to join in, too! Because we all deserve to accept, embrace and love ourselves exactly as we are. I’m working on it too; we can do this together 💛 #iChooseToBeWell
