Isn’t it bizarre that it’s easier to tell someone something and want them to take that advice, but when it comes to ourselves, we can’t seem to apply it to our own lives? This seemed to be my motive for creating this blog. I want women to love themselves, cherish, and appreciate who they are because I also want these things for myself. No matter how society thinks we should be, or who our guardians think we should be, what religion says we should be, the only thing that matters is who we believe we should be. Creating wholeness in our self is important and we all should strive for it!
I remember someone asking me once “what is something you like about yourself?” All I could think of is ways I treat other people. I said “ummm well I’m empathetic towards others I guess, and I’m a loyal friend.” What is wrong with what I said? I didn’t say things that relate to me and only to me. I’m in that process I’ve realized. The process in which I internalize the positive things I like about myself and say it to other people, you know, like the part of your resume where you write good attributes about yourself. What makes you good at being you? Would you hire yourself if you interviewed your current self? I’m learning to say things like, “I love myself,” I think I’m smart, and talented, and beautiful.”
I want you to journey with me in my self-appreciation process. If you find yourself thinking negatively about yourself in any way, or you even find someone else saying negative things about you, just remember you are who you are and even you can’t prohibit how great of a person you are now and who you will become.
Note to self: I am a Woman and I am Beautiful
