‘If you like the way you look that much then maybe you should go and love yourself’- J Biebs
So have you ever gotten an idea and then just pushed it away and it keeps on creeping back into your mind? Well here we are. Several months later, I’m serious. SEVERAL MONTHS. And I’m not going to be one to sit here and preach about how much I love myself. Or how I never struggle with any kind of self doubt or hatred. But at the same time knowing your worth is pretty powerful. And I am going to say that you are rockin’ just the way you are!
I believe that there is power in owning just how utterly amazing you are. Even if you just are admitting one simple thing that you like about yourself. For example: I really like that I give people the benefit of the doubt. It makes me, well me. But on the flip side there are still things I am learning to love. Like the fact thatI have the worlds craziest hair. It is super freaking curly and frizzy. (Especially with all of this dang humidity. Thanks Kentucky!) Lot’s of people see it and immediately state how jealous they are or how they wish they had hair like mine. But I struggle with it. Slowly I am learning to like it. And that is the way to go. Small baby steps.
But loving yourself takes time. So I guess what I am saying here is that it is okay to not be there 100%. As long as you are trying you are the best! In todays world I think we all get so stuck on seeing everyone else on social media living their best life and get jealous that we aren’t living that kind of life. That so and so seems to just have the best self confidence. You don’t know that.
I would tell us all to stop comparing ourselves but that is so much easier said than done. So start with something simple. Post a Selfie of yourself that you like. Share a talent you might be hiding. Give yourself a spa night to just relax. Read a book. Go for a walk. Call your mom. Eat your favorite food. Have a 1 minute dance party for one. And remember that you are just human and you can work on where you want to end up. But most importantly, remember to love yourself. All of yourself. Even the messy bit. It makes things so much better when you are trying.
And that is all folks!
