Being Ourselves

[styled_box]”The ultimate goal of being ourselves in an authentic way is actually about loving ourselves in a generous way.” – Mike Robbins[/styled_box]

Do you look in the mirror and think your too fat, too skinny, too tall, too short, etc.  When you make a mistake are you hard on yourself and say things like, “I’m so stupid” or “Why do I always make bad choices?”, etc?

In order to be yourself and live a fulfilling and successful authentic  life, you must love yourself as much as you love others.  You are important, you are awesome – just the way you are.

Talk to yourself better than you talk to anyone else.  Go look in the mirror and say to yourself, “You’re perfect just the way you are”.  Tell yourself, “You’re awesome just as you are”.  Tell yourself that you love you for who you are today.

Be generous with yourself.  If you’re tired, rest.  If you’re feeling sad, find a friend or someone to talk to.  Go out and do something silly!  Watch a funny movie.

It’s so important that you take care of yourself and your needs.  By being honest and open with yourself and learning to love who you are, you can create your authentic fulfilling life.
