In restarting my revised 75 Day Soft Challenge, I have added listing five things I’m thankful for each morning and looking at myself in the mirror and talking to myself with positive affirmations.
If you haven’t ever done this, I highly recommend it. We all have our weaknesses about ourselves. I’ve always felt inferior and have had low self-esteem. It still comes through in my opinions about myself.
This morning I looked at picture of myself with my great granddaughter and saw only my inferior neck. Ugh. So I headed to the bathroom mirror to have a positive affirmation. When I first saw my face it looked old and haggard. Then I started telling myself I was beautiful, just as God created me…beauty starts from within. As I talked, I smiled and my entire face began to change. Joy and love shone through my eyes.
It is easy for me to say these things to others, but I don’t say them to myself. Now I am.
Try it! God will smile at you!
