I suffer from frequent bouts of low self-esteem. Just like everyone in the whole wide world. And sometimes I need something to cheer me up and remind me why I should love myself. Because I AM pretty awesome if I stop to think about it.
I stumbled on to Gala Darling and her Radical Self Love campaign a long time ago. If you're looking for inspiration on being yourself and loving yourself, her site is everything you could ask for. She has a list of 100 ways you can start loving yourself right now. And since I could use a little radical self love any day, and I'm sure you guys can too, I'm embarking on a 100 step journey. Feel free to join me.
♥ Make lists of reasons why you love yourself.
" We’re so quick to believe people when they say nasty, unkind or “brutally honest” (ahem, cruel) things to or about us, & we discard all the times we’re told how amazing, beautiful or intelligent we are. Usually this is because our sense of self-doubt is stronger than our self-love."
It's so true! I still remember mean things high school boyfriends have said to me, but I dismiss it when my husband compliments me. How silly! So here's my list of things I think rock about me.
-a generous person
-a good cook
-sarcastic (I consider that a good thing)
-a really fast reader
-a good friend
I think I have great eyes and I love my big swinging hips. I also love my c-section scar from both my babies.
And I can touch the tip of my nose with my tongue. Jealous? As you should be.
It's not long, but it works for me. What are a few things you love about yourself?
