Step 1: FACING THE FEAR- BE COURAGEOUS
When it comes down to how I loved myself it was one simple way- to fight a good battle. I had to face my demons, and fight a good fight until I won! The fear of failing myself and others. I was always afraid of letting others down and myself. Always thought if I only I lost a little more weight I would be happier. If I only had a smaller nose I wouldn't look so weird--and so on! You know how the list can go on and on and on!!! But remember when facing your fears you have to dig deep down and find out why you have those fears, be courageous my friends and dig deep! My fear was that I was never good enough for myself or others. What is yours?
Step 2: FIGHT THE BATTLE
Once you realize what those reasons are,be ready for battle! But remember we have to be prepared. So here comes number two! I have a couple of tips on what has helped me fight a good battle. Here they are!
A: Positive thinking!
All day, every day! Tell yourself things you are grateful for. Tell yourself you are beautiful. Tell yourself you are unique and have a purpose in life. Keep those positive thinking coming all day, every day!!
This may sounds strange but start reading some books. Take your mind off everything and focus on what you are reading! Try to read inspirational books or something that you have always wanted to read. Also read books that you are curious about! My first book was The Alchemist, you can buy it at any book store! Reading gives you knowledge and allows you to think about something other than yourself.
C: Clean space
This helped me so much! The times I was feeling so down were the times I had a messy room, messy house, and dishes were not washed!! (oh oh)! But as I started to concentrate on making sure my little home was always cleaned I started to focus more on the positive! Having a clean space allows me to think clear and get things done in a peaceful relaxing and clean atmosphere.
Ok friends! These are the first tips :) I will be posting more next week! If you are having a hard time loving who you are and need some tips, let me know if these help you as much as they have helped me! XOXO-M
