It is important to realize that one of the most difficult things in our day to day lives is silencing that inner critic that continues to find fault with our physical self. Self love begins with finding ways to change your thoughts about yourself and your body. Moreover, every little step you take toward that change promotes a higher self esteem. Little things like taking the thought “I am too big” and changing it to “I have beautiful curves.” and so on down the line. The way you think about yourself important!
Affirmation for Self Love:
This morning when I look in the mirror I see myself with new loving eyes. Reflected at me is the beautiful, shining being that I am, the person that others see. My inner radiance is glowing through and I am comfortable with loving myself. Thus, I see my own beauty and I see my own inner light. Therefore, I am radiant with the knowledge that I am beautiful. I love who I am and I love who I am becoming.
How do I do this?
I make a conscious choice to change the way I think about myself by using the words like: “I now choose to love myself.” By making my affirmations into a choice it triggers the subconscious mind into realizing that you are making changes. Before I make this choice, I take the time to consciously ground myself in my heart center and let go of the ego. I also make the choice to embrace the changes I am now making within myself and use affirmations of self love. Furthermore, I also visualize the radiance of who I am.
To reaffirm my choice of loving myself I also make a conscious choice to make healthy food choices for myself throughout the day. I will also keep myself well hydrated throughout the day by drinking lots of water. By taking these simple actions it re affirms that I love and care for myself. Thus, I now believe in myself and my journey. Every step I take is toward knowing my true self better. I am filled with self love.
At the end of the day:
I take the time to reflect on how good my choices throughout the day has made me feel about myself. In fact, I trust and have faith in my own ability to love myself. In any event, I make a conscious choice to continue the new practices I have integrated into my routine today. I also make a conscious decision to continue to add new and loving alternatives into my daily life.

I chose this photograph as a reminder to be forgiving with yourself. We try to make healthy choices for ourselves but all too often we are bombarded with visual eye candy that is designed to lure us into failing with our healthy choices. Therefore, make sure that you take pride in the fact that it is one small step at a time and that these steps will lead you in the right direction. You are strong enough!
