When you look in the mirror what do you see? Can you hear your thoughts? They probably move pretty fast. Slow down and listen. Would you say that to your best friend? Your spouse? Your kids? If not, then please stop saying it to yourself!
Now take charge a minute. What would you love to hear from someone else in your life? Maybe you wish your partner told you how beautiful you are every day? Maybe you wish someone had told you how smart you are when you were a kid instead of always focusing on how cute you looked in your Sunday dress? Maybe you wish someone in your life said thank you for all you do for them?
Say it to your reflection right now. All the things you want others to say to you. Out loud! No cheating!!
Feel the feelings that come with hearing these words. Is it uncomfortable? Is it lovely? Does it feel so good? Does it feel odd? No judgement, just notice how your body reacts.
Now do this every morning. I mean it. Every. Single. Morning.
You are beautiful inside and out. You deserve all the amazing things the world has to offer and not because you did anything but because you are. You are worthy. Your body is perfect just the way it is, even if it isn’t the way you want it to be. Even if you are sick or tired or out of shape (whatever the fuck that means – your shape is perfect you may just wish you were stronger), your body is perfect in its NOW.
You can embrace and love yourself exactly the way you are in this moment and every moment and simultaneously strive to be a better version of yourself. But it has to start with loving yourself where you are now.
So say it. To your face! Every day. I love you Beautiful. You are an amazing human. I am so grateful to be here. Thank you so much! And damn you’ve got a great rack!!
