Most of us are guilty of putting ourselves down, especially when it’s the time of the month, you’ve just scoffed a load of cake, you’ve put on a couple of pounds or your face has erupted in a million spots. So day 6 of our advent calendar is all about cutting yourself some slack and reminding yourself just how AMAZING a person you really are.
I want you to look in the mirror, smile at yourself and tell yourself ‘I love you’. You might feel silly, but I can guarantee it will fill you with a warm glow and stop you from looking out for any bad stuff.
Accepting and loving yourself exactly the way you are is one of the hardest things imaginable, but it is possible. Only now in my late 30’s do I truly feel comfortable with who I am and what I look like, but now it’s almost as though a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. Life is just too damn short to sweat the small stuff and I am not going to waste any more of my time fretting about what the label in my clothes says, what the scales say (in fact I don’t even bother weighing myself these days), and whether or not I should worry about eating that last bit of cake in the tin.
I can look at myself and say ‘I love you’ and today I want you lot to do the same.
Remember to check back tomorrow to see what’s behind door 7 of the Art of Healthy Living Advent Calendar.
