Mirror, Mirror on the Wall.
We all know where this came from right? The movie Snow White, that lovely Disney film where the witch was bound and determined to always be the “fairest in the land” and her sidekick the Magic Mirror was to tell her if she fell from her head bitch status. We all know how THAT worked out when the Mirror told her it was Snow White … arrrgh!
Here’s the point I’m getting to is that while we don’t have a Magic Mirror (at least I don’t) to talk to us (thank god), we don’t need one because we do it to ourselves just fine.
We tell ourselves shitty stories and ask demeaning questions in the mirror.
Like every day …
Wondering why our face looks puffy, our hair is jacked, that pimple is about to erupt, etc.
Or asking is anyone going to ever love us again?
Are we ever going to be successful like we hoped?
Are. We. Good. Enough?
That’s the most common one I think: are we good enough? I challenge you to answer this question with a resounding YES! FUCK YES we’re good enough because we are here …
On this planet as our unique selves! There is no one else on this earth who looks like you or does things like you do. No. One.
And that fact alone is all the reason why you are good enough for all the goodness, all the happiness, all the fun that you deserve!
All you have to do is live and love yourself back. How do you start loving on yourself?
Here’s an easy yet effective exercise to try: Do this for 1 minute a day (yes, time it):
1. Stand in front of your mirror and look yourself in the eyes. Notice how your hair is clean, your eyes are open, your mouth and teeth work just fine. Appreciate every little thing you see and tell yourself how much you appreciate all your physical attributes that work.
2. Now tell yourself I love you and mean it! Look in the mirror and remind yourself OUT LOUD all the great things you are made of: courage, loyalty, honesty, hardworking, loving, kind, compassionate, etc.
That’s it. Two steps. Do this every for 30 days and believe me, you will totally transform the way you look at yourself, the way you feel about yourself and your confidence will increase tenfold.
