How to Love Yourself

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Now here we are faced with another Monday. I was thinking Sunday night how I dislike Mondays. Then I thought (and see trouble happens when I actually start thinking) Monday is just a day. What can I change to make Monday better.

The answer is me. 
We all could learn to love ourselves a little more.

If there is one thing I have learned in this lifetime, it is that some of the strongest, most beautiful, smart people are women. Let's love ourselves ladies!

STOP ALL CRITICISM.  Criticism never changes a thing. Accept yourself as you are. Everyone changes and when you criticize yourself, that insinuates your changes are negative. Approve of yourself  and your changes will be positive.

BE GENTLE, KIND, AND PATIENT.  Exactly what that says. Period.

BE KIND TO YOUR MIND.  Self hatred is only hating your own thoughts. Do not hate yourself for having thoughts, but gently change your thoughts.

PRAISE YOURSELF.  Praise builds you up. Tell yourself how well you are doing with even the little things.

SUPPORT YOURSELF.  Find ways to support yourself. Reach out to friends and allow them to help you. It shows strength to ask for help.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY. Learn about nutrition. What kind of fuel does your body need to have optimum energy and vitality. Learn about exercise. What kind do you enjoy? Cherish and revere the person you are.

LOOK AT YOURSELF.  Forgive your self, say I love you, express a growing sense of love for not only yourself, but do this once for your parents too.

DO IT NOW.  Don't wait until you get well, lose the weight, get the new job, the new relationship, etc...do the best you can and do it now.

Let's go out there and have an excellent Monday!

  1. Be kind to your mind. I need to keep this one somewhere I can see it. I'm guilty of putting my own self down more than I should!

  2. "Do it now" is tough for me. I'm a planner, I plan things and I think about doing a lot of things but when it comes to actually pulling the trigger and doing them, it's difficult. One of y New Years resolutions was to be more of a do-er! All great points here!
