The reason I chose ‘reflect’ instead of ‘focus’, or ‘be about the positives’ is because when you can reflect upon what you’ve created, changed, or behaved like in a positive manor - it makes repetition of it that much easier.
The joy reflecting can bring whether its from an accomplished task, conversation with a business partner, helping your child tie their shoes for the first time, or having a lunch date with yourself - good vibes are endless, if you choose to think about them.
Maybe you’ve been to the gym consistently, or you’re waking up earlier to spend more time getting your needs met. Without the so called ‘bad’ times, we never really would be able to know how special the good times are.
…and the positive impact those moments have on our lives. Even long after the experience is done.
Reflecting on things you have done, or are doing is much more influential to keeping consistent with it. Sure, we can focus on things that make us happy, focus on having positive thoughts, but if we can reflect on experiences we have an emotional attachment to - the takeaway is that much more powerful!
Take a deep breath, you’re putting in great work.
If you commit yourself to doing these 4 things, within your day - everyday - there is no doubt in my mind that you will not only feel more connected to yourself, but become your own best friend!
Loving ourselves is so much easier than we make it out to be, but deciding to chose love as our default is one of the hardest skills we have to master.
…but you are worth it.
You deserve to put yourself first, to love yourself, and to be able to count on yourself to show up.
So decide today, to start choosing you and applying these simple fundamentals to love yourself more.
