Just for me

Self-love. It is something we all need to work on. It is something that will come up many times, especially in each of our individual happiness journeys.

We must strive not to compare ourselves to others. They are suffering things we may not know about or see. They feel fat, ugly, and flawed. No one should ever feel that way about themselves, but everyone has their moments, their phases.

We have everything we will ever need in ourselves. We are our own best friend and worst enemy. We need to live with ourselves for the rest of our life, so why not love ourselves?

This quite possibly could be a post solely for me. I needed a reminder, and who better to have kick me in the butt about it than myself?

I hope this also changes your thoughts and feelings towards yourself. At least for today. Maybe forever.

Just love yourself. Please?

Dove Real Beauty Series: You Are More Beautiful Than You Think

Video

This experiment shows a forensics sketch artist sketching women as they describe themselves – without ever seeing them. Then, he asks others to describe these women. The results are ASTOUNDING.

How do you see yourself? Does this reflect your attitude? Are you happy with your appearance?

You should be. Get happy.

Mirrors

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror, no makeup or anything, and thought: I love myself!

???

Mirrors have been my best friend and my worst enemy over the years. When I was little, I couldn’t pass one without slowing down to smile at myself. As an adolescent and into more recently, I have abhorred mirrors. Even to the extent of not looking into them getting ready for work in the morning. This, however, only leads to looking at myself as I wash my hands and hating myself even more for not catching dry skin, makeup mistakes, or uncovered flaws.

Just the other day something happened.

I stepped out of the shower, looked at myself, and completely loved what I saw and what I am becoming.

Through hard work and persistence, not only is my body changing, but so is my attitude. My mentality and emotions have really blocked me from reaching out for some goals in the past, but I am not going to let that happen anymore. I really have been my own worst enemy.

I hope I remember this moment on a regular basis, especially on days where I am hating myself. But, now that I have had this breakthrough, I know that it is possible to love myself from head to toe.

How do you feel about yourself? Have you had a similar breakthrough? I want to hear from YOU, Happy People!

Perception

“People always ask me, ‘You have so much confidence. Where did that come from?’ It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl … It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.” —Gabourey Sidibe

Many of you may have seen the movie ‘Precious’. Many of you – myself included – may have not. Regardless of experience with the movie or the lead actress (quoted above), these are words that can be taken to heart and BELIEVED by each and every person.

Everyone has an individual perception. Why not make yours positive and loving?

And, along with loving ourselves, how about we love others more deeply? Why don’t we quell the judgment and anger towards people we don’t know, and even those who have wronged us? Yes, some things are difficult to get over (stereotypes and first impressions included), but anger is just wasted energy.

And that anger is letting outside forces determine your quality of life.

We all have at least one big journey in life. My ongoing journey – regardless of job, living situation, environment – is to bring on the happy and LURVE.

Will YOU join me in a self-love and non-judgmental movement?
