What do you love about yourself?
Is it your hair? Your smile? Is it your positive, “go-get-em” attitude? Is it your health that you have worked so hard for? Is it your ability to connect with others and create loving relationships?
Whatever it is, that’s awesome.
You should be proud of that thing. That is uniquely yours. No one can take away the things that you love about yourself.
Sometimes it’s hard to see or identify what you love. It requires some introspection and some reflection on what you value, and how you interact with the world. It’s also sometimes hard to give ourselves credit where credit is due.
Of course, there are things that we might find unsatisfactory about ourselves. That’s normal. There is always room for improvement.
But that’s the thing…
It’s the desire for improvement that allows us to see where we may be lacking and the potential that is hidden there.
If we pursue this improvement with a positive growth mindset, with a little bit of dissatisfaction, but a lot of self love, we make progress.
