I have three quotes that I am currently using to better my life because we all lack in this area in some way. We each have our own unique circumstances that made us who we are. Parents, teachers, friends, colleagues, family members all play a part in how we view ourselves; and most of the time is was/is unintentional hurt that can be caused and most imprinting happened before the age of 7. So what is one to do? Take back the power of your thoughts!
“I am Enough” from Marisa Peer’s YouTube video.
Marisa is a speaker, therapist, writer & behavioural expert gives great advice about praising ourselves and becoming our own best friend. Praising ourselves isn’t narcissistic, it’s healthy and necessary. In a culture where I was taught to be humble, I inadvertently squashed my self-esteem in the process. I gave away my power to feel good. There is healing that is happening now that I’m aware of the blocks.
“I LOVE Myself” from Kamal Ravikant’s YouTube video.
Kamal Ravikant is an entrepreneur and author of “Love Yourself As If Your Life Depended On It.” Along the same sentiments as Marisa Peer’s message, we have to take care of ourselves first. If I don’t fully, unconditionally love myself I can’t be expected to love others the same way, or receive that love from others.
“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be” from Abraham Lincoln.
These signs are posted on the bathroom mirrors, as per Marisa Peer’s suggestion. Anyone who comes to my home, and looks in a bathroom mirror will also receive the loving message.
