This is your Love Note to remind you that YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
When was the last time you felt truly beautiful? Inside and out.
After working behind the chair for over a decade, I’ve learned the ugly truth about how women think and feel about themselves, and trust me when I say it’s not always pretty.
So many women get trapped by the idea that their self-worth is dictated by the number on the scale or their pant size but trust me when I say your beauty and worth can NOT be defined by a number. Self-worth starts with the word “self” because only YOU can determine your worthiness.
Dr. Lisa Firestone believes that self-worth should be less about measuring yourself based on external actions and more about valuing your inherent worth as a person. In other words, self-worth is about who you are, not about what you do.
Self-worth isn’t found by comparing yourself to others, rather self-worth is an attitude and should encompass all the unique qualities that make you – YOU!
Beauty begins within. [Tweet it!]
From the heart. I know I always feel beautiful when I lend a helping hand to someone in need or when I’m lounging around in sweats with no makeup on and my husbands flashes one of those googly-eyed glances at me.
For most of my life, I allowed my “inner mean girl” to constantly compare myself to others who are skinnier, prettier, smarter, or wealthier. Once I realized this kind of attitude doesn’t contribute to positive feelings of self-worth – I stopped.
Today, I’ve reframed my mindset to focus on the beauty and love within me instead of the things I didn’t like about myself. This practice of noticing when my inner mean girl was flaring up, catching it, and reframing it into something more positive took dedication and practice.
Just like any new habit, it will take time to shift your focus, but it’s totally worth it. I went from living a life of self-loathing because I was allowing those “mean girl” thoughts to determine my worth to living a life of what I would call freedom.
Freedom from the mean girl thoughts and freedom from fear of being unlovable.
When you give yourself the love you’ve been searching for, you will finally feel true freedom. [Tweet it!]
