A few weeks ago, I challenged you you to make a promise to your heart. Did you do it? I hope so. If you did, I would love to hear in the comments how that promise is going. My guess is that it was harder to keep than it seemed on the surface. The truth is we aren’t conditioned to keep promises to ourselves and it takes practice. Teeny-tiny baby steps, little promises, and a stick with it attitude.
And reminders to speak to ourselves like we would a cherished best friend.
Have you been remembering to speak to yourself like a cherished best friend? I hope so!
If you have, then this Love Challenge will be easier to take on. If not, then it might be a bit of a struggle, but it will be even more critical that you give it an honest try.
Here it is:
In the comments below, for all to see (Or in the privacy of your own journal if that feels just too daunting), write down at least three things that you LOVE about yourself. You can write down more, you can write as many as you want, in fact GO FOR IT!!! Brag!!! WOOHOO all over yourself, and tell us how awesome, super-duper, spectacular, gorgeous, creative, smart, brilliant and loving you really are. Light that inner candle and let it SHINE!!!!! I want to see you GLOW!
Can you do it?
Did the very thought of it as you read that make you cringe? Shrink back into the tiny corner of your heart and say, Oh my, what is she thinking, that’s just crazy, I could never do that….
Would it have been easier if I had said: In the comments below, tell me everything you hate and despise about yourself? Would you have had your list ready and waiting, rehearsed and able to whip out at the drop of a hat?
Well, sorry to disappoint you, but today is the LOVE Challenge, not the SELF-ABUSE Challenge. We do enough of that on a daily basis, don’t you think?
So here we go, one more time to be sure we’ve got it, and this time in BOLD:
In the comments below, for all to see, (Or in the privacy of your own journal if that feels just too daunting,) Write down at least three things that you LOVE about yourself. You can write down more, you can write as many as you want, in fact GO FOR IT!!! Brag!!! WOOHOO all over yourself, and tell us how awesome, super-duper, spectacular, gorgeous, creative, smart, brilliant and loving you really are. Light that inner candle and let it SHINE!!!!! I want to see you GLOW!
And just to set the example, I’ll go first.
I love that I care deeply about others from the depths of my soul. I love that I feel connected to them from a place that feels like God inside of me, and that when I am still, and when I am listening, I feel like we can connect intimately and understand each other at a profound level. I feel this is one of my best gifts that I share with the world. To help them feel heard and understood.
I love that art comes through me from spirit when I am awake and listening and that I can in turn, share this creativity to the world.
I love being a MOM and nurturing my birth kids and the other kids that are in my world. I love that I matter to them, and I love our relationships and the difference we make in each others lives. For that matter, I love making a difference in all my relationships, I love being a wife, a friend, a daughter, a sister…a coach….I love helping people to be their best, and knowing that showing them encouragement and love made a difference.
I love that I love.
Now it’s your turn!!! What do you love about yourself? Do you dare to take the Challenge? I can’t wait to see what you have to share! Flood the comments with love and share the love with anyone you can!
