Hello again! Did you love yourself yesterday?
Did you repeat, “I love myself,” throughout the day in addition to your time in the mirror morning and night?
Good! Keep it up!
If you struggle to remember, or get distracted by your usual habits of thinking, don’t worry! And don’t beat yourself up.
That’s why I’m here for you again right now.
It’s OK. We all fall off the horse. Just be kind to yourself. Say, “It’s OK. I’m OK. I’m getting back on today and I love myself!”
Then go forth and do your best. Recommit to You right now.
There’s a good reason why this is a daily process. A day is a long time!
One day is our whole life in one sense. We only experience life today. We don’t live tomorrow and we don’t live yesterday.
We only live right now!
That’s why it is vitally important to establish the daily habits of living a Truly Amazing Life®.
We don’t live life ‘this week’ either by the way. This week is future, and we don’t experience our lives in the future.
We need to establish the habits of living in pure joy, love and truth every single day.
The amazingly inspired author James Allen wrote something that underscores why we are telling ourselves “I love myself.”
This is why we are filling up our heads with that thought:
“He who would be useful, strong, and happy must cease to be a passive receptacle for the negative, beggarly, and impure streams of thought;”
“As a wise householder commands his servants and invites his guests, so must he learn to command his desires and to say, with authority, what thoughts he shall admit into the mansion of his soul.” – James Allen
I love the imagery of not allowing the negative, unworthy impurities to enter into ‘the mansions of our soul’.
Instead, we consciously choose loving thoughts to abide there, and we fill our soul with those thoughts.
We leave no vacancy, and no room at the inn, for the negative thoughts that are beating at the door.
Thoughts of unworthiness, incapability, inferiority, fear, weakness are not allowed.
And the only way to keep those negative thoughts out is to fill our minds up to the brim with loving, truthful thoughts.
You are lovable. You are worthy. You are capable. You are strong and courageous.
Don’t believe otherwise, because the opposite of that is a lie that will only fill you with false fear and and bring you down.
Keep repeating, “I love myself!”
If you don’t feel like you love yourself, then say that statement as a command to yourself to start loving yourself!
Refuse to accept unloving behavior toward yourself.
And keep connecting with You daily in the mirror, at least morning and night.
Here’s a reminder of the 4 simple steps:
- Sit or stand directly in front of a mirror. (Get close, within a foot or two.)
- Breathe in and out deeply 3 times while looking in your eyes.
- As you look in your eyes say this 3 times: “(Say your name), I forgive you for every mistake of the past. I love you fully and completely. You are worthy. You are capable. You are amazing. (Feel free to add other truths about the real You).”
- Breathe in and out deeply 3 more times. (Still looking in your eyes.)
Remember Who You Are!
Make today amazing.
