You Deserve to Talk to Kindly to Yourself
Have you ever found yourself being a bully to YOURSELF? Taking trash about your body and the way you look? We are often our own worst critics, when we should be our own number one fan!
How many times have you looked in the mirror and picked apart every tiny “imperfection?”
How many times have you looked in the mirror and APPRECIATED aspects about yourself? I bet it’s far less than the criticism, am I right?
How would you want your child, niece/nephew, grandchild, or best friend to talk about themselves when they look in the mirror? That’s the way YOU should be talking to yourself. It’s also an amazing way to set an example for those around you.
I’m asking these questions to get us thinking. When was it decided that we have to be “perfect” and why are we not celebrating the amazing things our bodies can do?
I want to challenge you today to look in the mirror and say out loud,
”Hello amazing body! I am so thankful that you can (fill in the blank. ex. run, lift weights, go on walks, ski, carry my child…”)”
Then look yourself in the eye and say 3 affirmations. Today I wrote these 3 for myself and my kids:
– I am strong
– I can do hard things
– I have a kind heart
What are your affirmations today?
And don’t forget, everyday you can take small steps to become a Stronger You

oh my gosh! I totally bash my own body. It’s truly something I am aware, but can’t seem to break the habit. It sucks.
You are 100% correct! I did that this morning! Ugh…let’s see three things…
I am a kind and generous woman
I appreciate the warmer temperatures
I appreciate that I persevere and don’t give up!
