The Challenge for March 2010, is to learn to love yourself as you are right now. This means that I have to look at myself realistically and be able to see my faults and accept them and be able to celebrate my gifts and strong points. I need to stop fixating on my weight and focus elsewhere!
I would like to increase my positive self talk and be less self conscious about my weight. I'd like to revive my interest in pretty clothes and accessories and to see getting dressed up as something fun instead of dreading it or using clothes to hide my body. I have already been working on this for the past 18 months, but I can still use some concentrated effort. I'd also like to emphasize an attitude of gratitude. Appreciating the gifts of nature and friendships are very uplifting and make me a happier person. When I give, I get so much back just from the simple act of giving. Developing a grateful, loving attitude toward myself , nature, and others will set the stage for being able to love myself as I am now. For the month of March 2010, I will be my own biggest cheerleader and advocate. I will treat myself with loving kindness; much as I would a treasured friend.
