5 Things You Should Be Saying To Yourself Everyday

The best thing we can do for ourselves is to appreciate who we are. Love means nothing unless we can love ourselves first. Loving ourselves should be engraved in our being. Each day should be like a new opportunity to better ourselves. A new opportunity to uplift ourselves and the people around us. It’s okay to be a little selfish though. Take a little extra time in your day to do “me” stuff. Don’t get to wrapped up in what could have been instead focus on what you can do from this point on. Today my lovely readers, I want to share with you all a little pick me up. A little something you can take with you after you have read today’s post.

  • I Am Beautiful

The first thing you should say or acknowledge about yourself daily is that you are beautiful. You should embrace your flaws, and everything that defines you. Embracing your beauty  can give you that extra boost of confidence you need to carry on even when you’re not feeling beautiful. Throughout the day place little notes and objects around you that make you feel and remind you that you are beautiful. Lastly, pay it forward and complement your co-worker, your significant other, you family or just the people in your life; both male and female. As a woman who also struggles with embracing her beauty, I have to remember that like women men also struggle with embracing their beauty. So this week your mission is to tell five people that they’re beautiful be it at work, at the grocery store, at home, etc. 

  • I Can and I Will

I heard Gina Rodriguez say this at the 2014 Golden Globes and this has been my mantra every single time I either hit a stumbling block in my life or I set out to accomplish something new. The past year was really tough for me. I literally felt like my life was stuck in a rut. Nothing I wanted to do happened and I was really unmotivated. This year, I am making it my mission to live my life with a lot more excitement, take risks and push through the boundaries that sometimes limits me. For anyone who is struggling or just needs that extra pick me up. Grab a post it note, write this little mantra “I Can and I Will” on it and stick it on a place where you go to everyday. It can be your bathroom mirror, or a mirror in your room, your coffee machine or even the dashboard of your car. Recite this little mantra anytime you are faced with difficulties or a new opportunity. Trust me this little mantra gives me such a boost of confidence. 

  • Not Today Satan

I absolutely love saying Not Today Satan. This little saying is for anyone who might be dealing with difficult people on a daily basis or someone who is faced with situations where they can lose their patience. I work with kids and I honestly it is so difficult because their moods and attitudes can be so unpredictable so when I’m faced with a crazy situation I just calmly say to myself “Not Today Satan” and I calmly collect myself and walk away before the situation escalates into something bigger. 

  • I Am Worthy

These three words are the ultimate self-esteem booster. Growing up I sometimes felt unloved, unappreciated and unworthy. i had these highs when I felt on top of the world and then as soon as something went wrong or I messed up all these feeling of unworthiness came flooding back in. Today, I don’t struggle with this as much because I have confidence in who I am, I believe in myself and I know in my heart and soul that I am worthy. Instead of focusing on the negativity in your life, cast your eyes on the positive things and use the negativity as a learning and growing experience. Don’t look to others for self validation because in the end only you can validate yourself. Take time out of your day to actually spend time with yourself. Reflect on the things that make or made you feel unworthy and try to turn those feelings of self-doubt into feelings of self-love, self dedication and self worthiness. 

  • I Love Me

Love yourself. I think this is something everyone struggles with. Love means nothing unless we can love ourselves first. One of my favorite quotes from Christian Nestell Bovee says it perfectly, “Our first and last love is self-love.” It isn’t only about saying I love myself daily. Loving yourself also has to do with your actions. Our actions towards ourselves and towards others often reflects the way we feel towards ourselves.
