Loving Me Movement: Day 3 ( Flaws & All)

imperfection

 

 

I think we kind of do ourselves an injustice when we label  ourselves as having flaws.

Somehow we take away from the uniqueness of who we authentically are by deeming

something as imperfect or flawed. The definition of flawed is the following

flawed

/flôd/

Adjective
  1. (of a substance or object) Blemished, damaged, or imperfect in some way.
  2. (of something abstract) Containing a mistake, weakness, or fault.
When you think of who you are and who you are becoming, do you think you are a mistake? If you are weak to some things, do you think that is a permanent position for you? Do we really want to label ourselves as blemished or damaged? Think about it !

We can either see ourselves as evolving or label ourselves with self defeating word like flaw our imperfect. There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve, be better, or grow.

That is apart of life. The challenge for all of us is to know its ok to acknowledge where we are and to affirm where your going.

Our deepest fea…

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.
-Marianne Williamson

Late nights thoughts that continue to inspire me. I hope it does the same for you.

Loving Me Movement: Day 1 ( I Like Me)

248260998178336115_6b4eivtf_c

Today is all about LIKING YOU ! Yes, you. On the road to self love, we should first acknowledge what we like about ourselves. I know it sounds very simple, but it not. So often it’s easy for us to say what we want to change about ourselves or things we don’t like. We are going to spend today writing, thinking and saying all the things we like about who we are.

Start with things you like:

Internally ( Compassion, Character, Humility, Patience, etc )

External (  sense of style, body type, skin tone, it can even be the fact you dress appropriately) Try not to just focus on how you look. Think about how you may be a great communicator. External Assets are those things you give off from you everyday, like your smile.

Life Style ( eating habits, exercise routines, hobbies, clubs, traveling, etc.)

Experiences ( What experiences in your life do you like and value? What experiences make you feel good about who you are? )

These are just a few things, you can certainly add more.

  • If you have a smart phone or ipad/tablet you can record these thing through out the day or type them on a note pad.
  • If you love journaling create columns and sections and make you list one by one.
  • You can also take sticky notes and write down things you like about you as affirmations and put them on the wall or mirror , etc.

Have fun with it. Make it into a project or activity. Do it with friends, mothers and daughters , sisters, etc.

Loving Me: The Movement for Girls & Women

So often we hear ” Love who you are” . What does that really mean? This is question that many girls and women still have today. We are told to have self esteem, pride, self love, and value, but that’s hard to do when you may not even know why you like yourself. So join me in the Loving Me Movement for the next 7 Days. Yes 7 Days. Know this is not a 7 Day journey to total self love and acceptance of all of your flaws. This is more of a guide or compass to you figuring out why you deserve love and the person to start with is you !

Some things that this 7 Day Movement will challenge you to think about is:

1. What do I like about myself?

2. Can I expect others to love me more than I love me?

3. What is the beauty in my imperfections?

4.Why am I cheating on myself and giving others the love I know I deserve?

 

And more… I’m excited to take this journey with you. I hope you are. If you would like to join me, like this post subscribe to my blog and share. Also leave comments on how you are already loving you.

 

Late Night Thoughts : Security Issues

image

There is something liberating that happens to our spirits when we make peace with imperfections or insecurities. Just think of how much stuff and baggage we carry because we haven’t reached our idea of perfection. Think about how we beat ourselves up or become shame because we have a flaw of some sort.

This type of self critique is not healthy and does not support you in becoming the best you possible. The only thing that allows us to grow is self exceptance.

Self exceptance has nothing to do with not wanting to improve or be better. Self exceptance says “I realize there are things about myself,  I’m not comfortable with and that’s ok, but I give myself the time and space to improve “. Insecurities give us the oppurtunity to grow,  what’s more beautiful than that.

Let me know how you have made peace with insecurities. Share and inspire.
