I think we all or at least most of us can agree we are living in a very challenging time. I’m not talking about just financial it is spiritual, mental, emotional, and even physical. Even our belief systems have been challenged.
The reason I bring this up is that we really have to pay attention to what we are saying to ourselves. Yes, that’s correct what we say to ourselves and about ourselves is very important to our health and well-being. If you are beating yourself up about a mistake, STOP. If you are judging yourself, STOP.
Being kind to yourself will help you navigate these challenging times a little bit easier and it will also help you to be more kind and compassionate to others. I have a saying “You can either pay it forward to yourself now or pay for it later”.
If you want the world to be a better place then change starts with you. It may feel weird at first but just start with saying “I Love You” to yourself in the mirror. If you don’t want to look in the mirror that’s fine also just start by saying your first name and then follow it by saying _______ I Love You.
Set the goal of saying I Love You to yourself in the mirror and work towards that. Again, change starts with you!
