Today we are going to dip in to the not so pleasant, but I want to add a twist for you…
Get your notebook and pen ready
Go to the mirror – Greet that gorgeous lady by saying, “Hello Beautiful,” “Hello, Gorgeous,” “Hey, Hotstuff,” or whatever you prefer.
Look at that gal in the mirror – radiate love to her – know that you are starting to love her as much as she loves you.
Now… Go to your notebook and make two columns – one for the Tolerate and one for the Cannot Stand.
Before you start working on listing your faults, remember and keep in mind that you care immensely about yourself.
You are the sum of your AWESOME qualities AND those things you don’t like about yourself – and the whole sum is lovable.
When making your list, think about your imperfections from the perspective of someone who loves you…see them as areas to improve upon or things that you need to work on changing.
Write all of those defects, flaws, and failings down. Get them out, but remember to work from a place of love and acceptance of your imperfection – after all, no one is perfect, right?
After you are done with that list, go back to the mirror. Look yourself in the eyes and say,
“It’s OK. I still love you. I accept you – imperfections and all – and I will help you to accept yourself for who you are and also help you change what you don’t like about yourself.”
Remember, you should love yourself no matter what your perceived flaws, imperfections or weaknesses are.
