Question? What do you think about yourself?
If someone asked you to describe yourself with brutal honesty- would you shock yourself with your answers? Do you truly own your strengths and love yourself or do you focus on your weaknesses and beat yourself up on a daily basis? Just as important as it is to be non-judgmental towards others, we also need to stop judging ourselves so harshly. So for this week’s affirmations, instead of the usual “I WILL….” list, I have created a long list of positive adjectives for us to read closely and really think about how each word applies to us and how we view ourselves. If you tend to think negatively about yourself, it’s time to stop it and start focusing on your strengths and unique abilities!
So, how do you feel about that list? I’m sure we all have a few that we can completely own and feel confident about and a few that we are unsure of and may have a hard time seeing ourselves fitting that specific description. I’ll be open and share that often times I feel totally scared, completely insecure, not so graceful and want to make wiser decisions. Of course, when I am feeling like this it is usually when I’m coming from a fear-based place of ego and in a silly pitty party. I have learned the tools to get myself back on track when I falter and have realized it serves no purpose to constantly beat myself up for my short-comings. We all need to be proud of who we are and who we are BECOMING! I encourage you this week to start believing in yourself more than ever! We are all a WORK IN PROGRESS and it takes focus, courage and determination to make the necessary changes in order to grow and become all that you are DESTINED TO BE! I love the quote below! Such truth. I challenge you to be conscious of what you are thinking of yourself. If you catch yourself thinking a bad thought – STOP- and replace that description with a positive one! It’s a simple exercise that can completely transform your self-esteem!
