Recently I was asked a question that made me really stop and think...
How well do you love yourself?
Not gonna lie, it kinda felt like a sucker punch to the gut.
I like to think I love myself well, but if I were an outsider looking in I'd say things like...
I push her too hard.
I don't let her rest enough.
I don't fuel her with the nutrition she needs, instead feeding her junk or even starving her due to meager excuses of time and later.
I don't give her enough time to creatively play.
I'm too judgmental of the way she interacts with others.
I'm too critical of her, never seeing she is giving her best.
I have a feeling that if you too stepped back and took an outsider's glance at how you love yourself, you might hear some of the same responses.
So, this year, I am digging deep to truly work on loving myself. Through the hard, through the broken, through the messy, I want to embrace all that has brought me to this imperfect place and just love myself and others better. I am trying so hard to be a better me!!!
