This wonderful compliment was painted on the bathroom wall of a marketing company I was visiting.
It really made me smile. What a beautiful way to make people feel good.
When was the last time you said something nice to yourself in the mirror?
What we speak to ourselves, especially in the mirror, is what we’ll eventually believe about ourselves.
For the past 10 years, I’ve made an effort to say empowering and beautiful words to my image. This is an important part of self care. It builds our self esteem and helps us feel worthy of creating better lives for ourselves.
Spend some time doing what I like to call, mirror work. Look in the mirror and say something nice to yourself. It may feel silly at first, but this is a powerful exercise. You’ll feel good about yourself for the rest of the day. When we feel good about ourselves, we make better decisions about our lives because we feel we deserve better.
When you’re stuck in a relationship, job, or whatever, try mirror work. When we’re stuck, we assume we need to do something, find a strategy or a solution to get unstuck. We look for the perfect alternative. Sometimes we talk down to ourselves because we feel hopeless in our situation.
You are never hopeless. Being stuck means you need to change your beliefs about yourself. Before you try to force yourself to act, try shifting the way you see yourself and how feel about yourself. The outside is always your creation. It’s just a reflection of something going on inside you.
So next time you look in the mirror, don’t criticize yourself or say something negative. Speak positivity to yourself. Don’t always wait for someone else to do it for you.
Here are some words you can say to yourself:
- You are beautiful
- I love you.
- I approve of who you are.
- You are a genius
- You are immensely talented and you share this talent with the world.
- You are unstoppable.
- You accomplish all of your dreams.
- You are surrounded by love.
- You are a miracle.
- You are a millionaire.
- You have unlimited potential.
