Embracing The Best Parts Of Me
A mother loves her child without hesitancy or reservation. Romantic love, in its infancy , can make you feel like everything in the world is going right. Most of us , however,doubt that love without conditions,love completely forgiving and accepting, exists in real life. Taking inventory of ourselves, allows us see too many flaws and remember too many times we didn’t live up to our idea of perfect. And we fail to love ourselves without also putting a limit on that love.
Spiritual growth and an overall personal evolution is necessary in order to expand the love we experience into unconditional love. This is a journey and there will be days that are better than others. Just know you can grow and it will get better.
The root of embracing the best parts of you, is learning how to love yourself. As with anything, there isn’t a one size fits all approach but there are things that we can try to determine if it works for us as individuals. Some of these may seem scary, unrealistic, or basic at first, but once you have discovered the ways that work for you, you will feel so much happier and can truly say that you love yourself.
Learn How To Love Yourself By Saying No To Others
Sometimes we do too much for people, we like to please other people, so we tend to stretch ourselves too thin and commit to everything . We can forget to take care of ourselves sometimes, so that’s why it is good to say no. This can also look like shrinking yourself to make others feel better about themselves. One thing that I have learned in 2018 is that other’s comfort levels should not come at the cost of yours.
Accept The Entire Package. Unconditionally.
Unfortunately, many of us will not love ourselves until we lose the weight, or get the job, or get the raise, or the boyfriend, or the house. We often put conditions on our love. But we can change. We can love ourselves as we are right now! If we want others to be able to offer us unconditional love we first have to be able to offer that to ourselves.
Own Your Potential And Be Patient With Yourself
Love yourself enough to believe in the limitless opportunities available to you. Take action and create a beautiful life for yourself. Let go of urgency and fear. Relax and transform striving into thriving. Trust yourself, do good work, and you will see results. Sometimes this looks like indulging in some new items for your closet that help to bring out the best in you. That make you feel comfortable and cute. So many people I know love to indulge in new heels or a new little black dress. Me? I am all about my errand clothes. I spend most of my time running errands, working out, and meeting with friends so knowing that my casual clothes capsule is up to date and can make me feel super cute is so important. I have been rocking prAna for the last couple of years, ever since I was introduced to them by my Sweat Pink family and was SO excited that they sent me a few pieces (pictured) from their Cozy Up line. These pieces transition from a hike to a cute coffee date with friends. I love that they are comfortable, made from Hemp and are genuinely great quality items.
As an extra bonus they shared a code with me to give to you guys that will get you 25% off! They have sizes XS-3X so pretty much everyone is covered. Aren’t you glad you read this the entire way through? Use code BGILprAna25 until the end of the year!
