Loving Yourself: Every Little Bit of You
Tuesday, February 19, 2013
Did you ever imagine that loving all of yourself could be so hard? Would you find it easy if I asked you make a list of the things you love about yourself? Do you have a long list or a short list? I can name a couple of things I like about me, but that’s about it. Ellen Goodman said, “The things we hate about ourselves aren’t more real than things we like about ourselves.” We have to learn to love everything about ourselves. Here is a wonderful reminder to help you do that today:
Darling, open your eyes, you are not made up of those words that hurt you. Or that number on the scale. Or the expectations that you feel you will never meet. You are made up of nothing more than you. Simply, beautifully, wonderfully, uniquely you. You are a lovely and complex soul. An individually fascinating combination of thoughts, ideas, feelings, and emotions. No other is as beautiful as you. Look past the mirror. Look at your soul. Only then will you see yourself as you truly are. Beautiful. So smile! And don’t forget to love yourself.
