I LOVE this topic because I know how much it changed my life. So today I want you to write 3 things that you value about yourself. I value myself because________. It can be one worded answers or a sentence. Take a photo again and load it up on my FB or Instagram with the tag; #bloomforlove.
When you value yourself a beautiful shift begins to happen in your life.
I used to believe that I was only valuable if I was pretty and so spent hours getting ready for parties, work meetings and when meeting friends. I think it is a loving act of kindness to be well groomed and present yourself beautifully for yourself and others, however, I believed that my value came in the form of great hair and a slim figure.
I decided to write down 3 things that I valued about myself each day before going to bed. None of my values could be appearance, I needed to write down other values that made me Leisa. I listed things like, great friend, generous, passionate about activating for animals. It made me feel amazing to see that I was more than aesthetics and it really took the pressure off me to always look a certain way. The way society wanted me to look.
What Valuing Yourself Can Do For You:
When you start seeing all that you are and the many different aspects that make you unique, you then begin to value yourself. When you start valuing yourself you show others how to respect you and value you.
Be the first example of how the world should love you. Love yourself first and others will take your lead. Teach people how you should be treated.
– Lisa Nicholas
When you value yourself you become incredibly confident and you start realising that you can handle any situation that is given to you. This is done through forming a loving and kind relationship with yourself.
When I declared that I would create my own business there was a lot of self doubt in my mind along the way. So each time that I doubted myself I would refer back to my journal that had a long list of all the things that were valuable in me. I then added 3 more for good measure.
Valuing Yourself & Relationships:
When you are looking to attract love that is different from your past negative relationships you need to change something within you to end the pattern. When I first started valuing myself it was a very foreign feeling. My mind always wanted to go back to disrespecting myself because I had spent a lifetime talking to myself that way. However, I was persistent and began changing how I viewed myself. Guess what happened? Toxic friendships left my life, or I had enough love for myself to end the friendships, I got a voice and started being brave to stand up for myself and others, and of course I attracted a man that saw me for who I was and loves me unconditionally.
When you don’t find value in yourself, or your value of yourself is limited to a few areas like beauty or humour then you start attracting people into your life that only see the qualities that you see. You want to start valuing all that you are so that you will meet someone that loves and cherishes all that you are.
You will not only feel more confident, you will begin seeing how special you really are. I cannot wait to hear from you and how you are going on your journey so far.
So don’t forget, write 3 things that you value about yourself. I value myself because________. Be creative, then take a photo and load it up on FB or Instagram with the tag; #bloomforlove. And don’t forget to follow me too!
