The NFL Football Playoffs are in progress & I started thinking wouldn't it be fan-tastic if we did the Crazy End-Zone Dances every time
we scored in our day. Finish your work-out-WooHoo!Tracked you food- I am the Greatest! Yay Me!!!! Wouldn't that be awesome?
We need to be our own Cheerleader & take credit for the jobs we go & goals we achieve.
Being our own cheerleader is not about bragging, boasting or being better than anyone else. It's about honoring, appreciating and loving ourselves in a real way. On this journey of life we are with ourselves in every moment -- the more capacity we have to love ourselves, the more ability we have in turn to love others and share our gifts with the world.
Cheering for ourselves with passion, and with a true sense of love and appreciation is actually required if we're going to live a life of fulfillment, gratitude, and meaning.
This is something I have to work at everyday-it does not come naturally at all. These exercises might be helpful.
•Speak about yourself positively
•When someone compliments you, breathe, let it in and say "thank you" (don't discount it)
•Say affirmations to yourself in the mirror, and use your first name .
•Write down things you appreciate about yourself in your journal on a regular basis.
•Send yourself an email or card of appreciation -- from you, to you
•Buy yourself flowers or some token of appreciation that makes you feel good.
•Ask for the acknowledgment you'd like.
•Make requests of others (remember that you don't have to do it all yourself)
•Take time for yourself and by yourself.
•Celebrate your successes (big and small) and pat yourself on the back regularly.
