Self- Concept Thursday!

WHAT ARE YOU FEEDING YOURSELF?

What are you feeding your spirit today? Did you look in the mirror when you woke up this morning and tell yourself how gorgeous you are, or did you look in the mirror and say to yourself “I need to lose some weight?” Did you look at another woman today and compare yourself to her? Why is it that we look at another woman and compare our “worst” features to what we think are her best features? Of course this leaves us feeling horrible about ourselves and further damages our self image.

Did you know that what you tell yourself about yourself is what you truly, deeply believe about yourself? So why not tell yourself something wonderful like “I am gorgeous” or “My worth is far above rubies”. I know it is a bit uncomfortable at first especially if you are not used to feeling this way about yourself, but try it. It’s much better than telling yourself all the things that you need to work on and then feeling bad or unworthy.

Feed your spirit something wonderful today! Give yourself a spiritual meal that you would not normally eat on a daily basis. Just like if you were going out to celebrate a special occasion. Only this time the special occasion is you! Go ahead and indulge. Order the most expensive thing on the menu of spiritual entrees and of course eat your dessert first!

    I love love LOVE this!!! We women have got to start loving ourselves and stop beating ourselves up just because we don't look like the PhotoShop'ed picture of some model on a magazine or because someone can do something that we can't. It doesn't make us less of a human being or a woman. People are so quick to point out "flaws" in others and themselves. Well here is what I have to say about flaws in my affirmation:

    I don't have "flaws". I have unique identifying characteristics that make me the beautiful woman that you see before you.

    My hair aside (I love my hair), I'm doing "Insanity" workouts with my husband. There's an exercise called Power Jumps. Power Jumps are very hard for me. I do them, but I languish over the thought of them. Well this morning I got on the scale and my weight was up one pound, AND this morning's workout called for Power Jumps. As soon as the Power Jumps came up, I said in a childish whining tone, "I'm not gonna do this". My husband was angry and disappointed in me. I was disappointed in myself too. After holding back tears, and swallowing my insolent pride, I ended up doing my best and did as many Power Jumps as I could.

    Reading this post today reminded me to say positive affirmations to myself. I am reminded to lavish myself with love and encouragement (Webster's: abundance, wash, expending or bestowing profusely). When I do that, I'll get over the humps, and I can give love and encouragement to others that need it.

    Here’s a quote that I really like and have it up in my cubicle.

    “I’ve come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in my life. My daily attitude makes the weather. I possess a tremendous power to make another person’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. It is my response that decides whether a crisis will become larger or smaller, a friend, co-worker or boss, spouse, daughter or son will be humanized or dehumanized. “

    How will you exert your energy today?
