As the month of February wraps up, I want to encourage you to do one small thing: choose love. I know, I know, we hear this all the time–songs and greeting cards have been declaring this message for decades. Most often though the one thing that our love neglects is our self.
You may also be thinking, “I love myself, I have pretty good self esteem, there are no issues”. This might be true, but you may be missing those tiny moments in the day when you catch your reflection in the mirror and think, “ugh, that pimple is disgusting” and “my hair is terrible”. Or maybe you see someone next to you at the gym and think, “her legs are so much nicer than mine” and “bleh my butt is so gross”. You may think that these are just fleeting thoughts that don’t really mean anything, but they do.
These little thoughts derive from fear. Just think about that for a moment.
It may be fear that you will be found unattractive, fear that your current situation will not change, fear that you will be judged, fear that you will not be loved. Gabrielle Bernstein, popular author and speaker, interprets fear as:
False, Evidence Appearing Real
The next time that you say or think unloving things about your self, acknowledge it (with no judgment), and resolve to choose love instead. Try these two affirmations:
“Love did not create this [thought, idea, etc.] .”
“I am willing to see love.”
And if a change is actually needed in your life– for your health or well being, instead of entering the process in a state of unlove and fear, by entering into it with love, your results will be extraordinary.
This might all sound like a bunch of gobbledygook, but just trust me and give it a go. You might even see your energy increase, blemishes clear, and skin glow–all because there is no room for stress and anxiety in that body of yours.
A little love can go a long way!
