Be the change
Becky told us the story of the embroidered picture hanging on her door that says, “I’m beautiful just the way I am” Which got me to thinking about how we see ourselves.
I’m wondering … When you look in the mirror who / what do you see?
Is it possible for you to take a lingering gaze into the eyes of your reflection?

relationships with everyone else,it influences all our connections and interactions. It isn’t an easy process for everyone, especially if your confidence and self esteem is low, and goodness knows a huge majority of us either are or have been there at some point in our lives. What I’m offering here are a few pointers to change things around, to get you thinking / moving towards a more generous and compassionate view of that woman who stares back at you, and there’s a challenge at the end to keep you on track.
Yep, I know it can be a biggie but
[bctt tweet=”how can we be accepting of others when we don’t know how to accept ourselves?” username=”SallyCanning”]
warts and all? How can we change the way we think? When we begin to examine and accept our own beliefs and values rather than the ones we’ve carried around for so long that are really a jumble of out dated hand me downs from family members, friends, even previous generations, we can share our own views and our truth with conviction and gain lots of faith and insight into who we really are inside.
2. Laughing (especially at yourself)
I loved it yesterday when my friend declared “I am the truth” when offering her point of view and immediately burst into fits of giggles as she realized, “Oh What A Drama Queen!” Laughter is a priceless quality and brilliant for dissipating tension, your own and other people’s.
3. Trusting your Inner Wisdom
Listening to that quiet voice (or maybe not so quiet – I know that if I ignore mine it ends up like a right old shout in my head – “HELLO, CAN YOU HEAR ME?“) When we learn to do this it make it much easier to trust other people because we have an internal point of reference. I suppose you could call it honing your gut feeling.
Even though lots of us have either learned or somehow come to believe that we’re not enough, not good enough, bright enough, pretty enough, thin enough, …… enough, ……enough, ….. enough – I’m sure you can fill in the blanks with your own – it can sometime be hard to appreciate our own uniqueness and personal beauty.
So, I’m setting you a challenge this week –
Every time you pass a mirror stop, look at yourself and smile with gratitude.
I want you to acknowledge that amazing, uniquely beautiful, smart, funny, loving, generous and gorgeous inside woman and remind yourself how fortunate you are to be her – even if you find it difficult to do at first please persevere, just watch what happens, notice the change as the days go by.
Want a fabulous process to help bring more awareness of the good things in your life, to raise your ‘Gratitude Vibration’ and generally make you feel more happy and positive? THIS could be exactly what you’re looking for. Enjoy x
