Did you know it’s easy to love you? Let me tell you how. I love the fact that you give each day your very best. I love that if you seemingly falter, that you continue to forge ahead and not let it get the best of you. I love that you take risks and step outside the box. I love your smile. I love your laugh. I love that you care for others. I love that you see life filled with opportunities. I love that you give yourself a break when you are having a challenging day as you know it’s just a moment of time.
Your family and friends can find many reasons to love you. My question is, do you love yourself? We’ve all felt unworthy or not good enough at some point in our lives, so when you feel that way, do you realize it’s simply normal? No reason to not like yourself for that. We’ve all had moments we could have done or chosen differently, so when you feel that way, do you realize that is simply normal? No reason to not like yourself for that. We’ve all had moments of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, so when you feel that way, do you realize that is simply normal? No reason to not like yourself for that. I say it’s normal to love yourself. Try it, you might actually like it.
AFFIRMATION: I give and receive love easily.

For the next week, I invite you to love yourself by:
Forgiving yourself for the not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, old/young enough, thin enough, strong enough feelings you’ve held about yourself. There is no other one like you, so recognize your uniqueness.
Saying YAY ME for everything you feel you are good at no matter how small it might seem to be. What you find easy to do is another person’s challenge, so recognize what you are good at.
Being proud of your accomplishments as being proud of yourself is not diminishing another’s talents. It is you and I, not you or I. Recognize your accomplishments.
Being gentle with yourself when you have setback by simply knowing the amazing person you are and that you always thrive.
Mostly, my wish for you is to love yourself so you can recognize the special gifts you are here to share. Fill yourself up with respect, integrity, compassion, humor, kindness, and love. When you are filled to the rim, is when you can overflow all of those qualities to those you love and share your talents with the world.
Until next week, loving you is easy, I hope you see that.
