When was the last time you looked into your own eyes in a mirror and told yourself how wonderful you are?
How about telling yourself you are capable, kind, and loving? And pretty, too!
Most women are quick to criticize themselves but are stingy with compliments. Many of us are good at complimenting others but when it comes time to buoy our own self-esteem, we are more like deflated balloons!
It takes a lot of living to come to a point of self-acceptance. Most women I know (including myself) are unhappy with some aspect of their bodies whether it's the shape of their noses, hips, thighs, hair, or eyes and so on.
It's very difficult to look at yourself in a mirror and say,
"I love you," and really mean it.
When we are able to do that, however, we are well on our way to self-acceptance and a better quality of life. It's true that when you truly believe you are loveable and precious, you "become" loveable and precious and are able to share that self love with the world!
So, next time you are near a mirror, really look at the image in the reflection. Look deeply into your own eyes and say, "You are wonderful!"
