Do you feel like you’ve let yourself down at times? Are you rating yourself low on the self-love ladder? Well, it’s time to win yourself over again and give yourself a 10 on the self-love scale! Here’s how!
Appreciate How Special You Are
Never, ever, ever forget how special you are. There is never going to be anyone that can bring to this world the perspectives and talents to it just like you would. It’s unique to you. You’ve created your own reality and are living life according to it. You are the only you there will ever be. This makes you kind of a big deal!
Delve into Affirmations
I know you’ve heard this before and at times they may sound silly but they really do work. However, you can’t just the words, you have to get yourself to believe what you are saying. And then say them again and again. And then some more. Write them on post-it’s, practice them in the morning, repeat them at night. Engrain them in your brain so much so that you feel it, want it, and get worked up by it.
Do What You Love
When you constantly deny yourself what you love, you tend to feel pretty limited and very not worked up about what you are doing. Look at your life and see where you are letting yourself down – these are the areas that you want to change. Swap out these areas with things that you love. Bring energy back into your day!
Accept Compliments With Ease
Many of us have a tendency to counter compliments with a disclaimer. For example, when someone compliments us on an outfit, our knee-jerk reaction might be to say, “oh, this old thing…” Instead, accept compliments gracefully. They can add a nice boost to our day!
Don’t Compare Yourself to Others
This is a biggee. We all do it; we need to stop doing it if it’s causing us harm instead of motivating us. Comparison is the quickest way to take all the fun out of life. It’s really none of our business what other people are doing. All that matters is that we are enjoying ourselves, our creations, and the unique spin that we put on each one of them. No one else can do what we can do and that is perfection in and of itself!

In our lifetime we will experience success, failures, and milestones. These are the things that make up a good part of our life and we should recognize each of them as they are all . Throughout my life I honestly did not recognize any of these, but I did focus on my failures mostly although […]
Second chances are always appreciated in our lives whether it’s a second chance at a relationship or a career or to rebuild. I can honestly say I have gotten a few second chances in life especially after my Suicide attempt in 2007. At that point in my life which I was in my mid-twenties I […]

The reason I ask is because it seems to me that these days we are increasingly moving towards becoming a cashless society. The continuing threat of Coronavirus has no doubt contributed in accelerating the demise of notes […]
