It is important to realize that one of the most difficult things in our day to day lives is silencing that inner critic that continues to find fault with our physical self. Self-love begins with finding ways to change your thoughts about yourself and your body. Moreover, every little step you take toward that change promotes higher self-esteem. Little things like taking the view “I am too big” and changing it to “I have beautiful curves.” and so on down the line. The way you think about yourself is important!
Affirmation for Self Love:
This morning when I look in the mirror, I see myself with new loving eyes. Reflected at me is the beautiful, shining being that I am, the person that others see. My inner radiance is glowing through, and I am comfortable with loving myself. Thus, I see my beauty and I see my inner light. Therefore, I am radiant with the knowledge that I am beautiful. I love who I am, and I love who I am becoming.
How do I do this?
I make a conscious choice to change the way I think about myself by using words like: “I now choose to love myself.” By turning my affirmations into an option, it triggers the subconscious mind into realizing that changes are being made. Before I make this choice, I take the time to consciously ground myself in my heart centre and let go of the ego. I also choose to embrace the changes I am now making within myself and use affirmations of self-love. Furthermore, I also visualize the radiance of who I am.
To reaffirm my choice of loving myself I also make a conscious choice to make healthy food choices for myself throughout the day. I will also keep myself well hydrated throughout the day by drinking lots of water. By taking these simple actions it reaffirms that I love and care for myself. Thus, I now believe in myself and my journey. Every step I take is toward knowing my true self better. I am filled with self-love.
At the end of the day:
I take the time to reflect on how good my choices throughout the day have made me feel about myself. I trust and have faith in my ability to love myself. In any event, I make a conscious choice to continue the new practices I have integrated into my routine today. I also make a conscious decision to continue to add new and loving alternatives to my daily life.
Self Esteem Series:
“I am at home in my body. All is well.”
I chose this photograph as a reminder to be forgiving of yourself. We try to make healthy choices, but all too often, we are bombarded with visual eye candy that is designed to lure us into failing. Therefore, make sure that you take pride in the fact that it is one small step at a time and that these steps will lead you in the right direction. You are strong enough!
