I LOVE ME

I was talking to my niece and nephews the other day.  Somehow the subject of gymnastics came up. (not surprising as my niece is on a competitive gymnastics team...and she LOVES it).  I remarked that my nieces body is pure muscle and that was awesome.  (when you cuddle with her you are cuddling with a little muscular girl).  She looked at me and got the most blissful smile on her face and said "I love me!"

Out of the mouths of babes.  This is how we should ALL be.  We should be this way for ourselves.  Like us for who we are.  Like us for what we have done for ourselves.  Like us for the person that is inside.  If we all practiced the "I love me" mentality, it in theory would be easier to lose weight.  We do things for the ones that we love.  Who wouldn't think about giving up something for a person that they love with all their heart?  I would gladly forgo something for my loved ones.  Yet I won't forgo the momentary pleasure of food for myself?   Do I not think I'm worth that effort?  I won't drag myself out of bed a bit earlier to exercise.  Do I not think I'm worth the effort????  

That is where I am wrong.  I am a wonderfully made woman.  I am worth EVERY OUNCE of effort that is put into making me a better person.  I LOVE ME and I need to start acting like it!

This world would be a MUCH BETTER PLACE if everyone took the "I love me" mentality!

Yea, that's the tough part of it all I think feeling worth enough to do the things we should and then even when I feel I do love myself sometimes I will convince myself I deserve the food. It's a mind game for sure. Good post!

Your niece has got the right idea. I do not know when I stopped loving me, but I am working on loving myself. I know that I am worth it. Hope all is well with you ....:-)I have been outta the loop for awhile and look forward to reading your blog more regularly...as I am trying to get back on track.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year...

You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation however I to find this
topic to be actually one thing which I feel
I'd by no means understand. It seems too complicated and extremely wide for me. I am taking a look forward for your subsequent post, I'll
try to get the hold of it!
