“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.”
Boy is Wilde more right then ever.
I’ve started falling more & more in love with myself as the days pass. Now you might think I’m a little crazy for saying so, but it’s true.
I’m beginning to appreciate every flaw, which people in my past & present I haven’t been so kind with. I’m learning to be kind to myself & appreciate how I’m different then the rest.
I’m growing in appreciation of everything I’m capable of & what I know is true, regardless of what anyone may think or say. Too many times I’ve allowed what others have said shape me somewhat & that’s made me weak. I’m not saying I just go with the flow in that sense..but I let people think what the want & in doing so….it’s changed who I’ve become. So no more will I let someone assume something of me.
I am forgiving myself… I know I have made mistakes in the past that have made me feel unworthy or just pitiful… well we all make mistakes & bad choices. I am choosing to stop holding onto any emotional baggage that I’ve held so dear to my heart over all these years. I’m not justifying making mistakes as being okay, but I intend to grow in my actions as I mature & the years go by.
Why don’t we express gratitude towards ourselves, when we towards others in our daily lives? Don’t we deserve self affirmation? I believe we do. Instead of enhancing your flaws, mistakes & self banter about how you’re not good enough–yes you know what I’m saying.. not pretty enough, smart enough, lovely enough, skinny enough & the list goes on..
I am starting to walk through my days with conviction with the things I do wrong. I have to start thinking in such a way that my mind doesn’t violate my heart.
& learning to see more & more beauty each day…
& taking away one anxiety, one headache, one heartache a day at a time…
because the more beauty you see, the more you see in yourself. ❤
Keep at it.
Fall in love with yourself more everyday.
Talk to yourself in the mirror.
Give yourself the pep talk you need.
