Happy Monday my friends! I hope your weekend was as hot as the dumpster fire that is 2020…oh wait I’m trying to be more positive. Anyways, let me know in the comments section how your list of affirmations came along.
For this week’s Me Crush Monday, I want to talk to you about body image. It’s something that many of us have struggled with at some point in our lives. For the lucky few, the major wave of the issue started and ended with puberty. For others, it is and will be a lifelong struggle. I’ve personally always struggled with body image. It’s not something that I easily admit because admitting it truly makes me feel even more self-conscious. There are times that I still get dressed in the dark and avoid mirrors. It’s not healthy per say, but it’s better than catching those glimpses of myself at the wrong angle that could potentially lead to me having a rough day.
For this week’s Me Crush Monday, I encourage you to talk about yourself the way you’d talk about your crush– respectfully, but with stars in your eyes. The way you talk about their smile, the way you talk about their laugh, their odd smirks, or their quirky walking gait. Instead of investing that energy into your admiration of someone else, give yourself the chance to view yourself through those rose colored glasses. For everyday this week, I want you to avoid those negative obsessions and obsess over one small, positive thing about yourself; the same way that you’d obsess over a crush. It’s easy to give other people credit for the little things that make them oh so lovable. We all deserve to see those things in ourselves. At the end of the day, your crush on yourself is the crush that carries the most weight. Learning to love yourself is difficult, but it will benefit you for the rest of your life.
I’d love to hear from you! Let me know about the things about you that make you oh so lovable 🙂
