Be Kind to Yourself

I don’t know about you, but I am hard on myself. The things I say to myself I would never dare say to someone else. Things like: You’re an idiot. You failed (again). What is wrong with you? You’re unloved. You ruined it. You’re ugly. People are annoyed by you. . . I could go on.

I’ve done much self-improvement work over the years. And I’ve come a long way, but I also know that I have a long way to go.

Giving myself kindness requires me to speak truth to myself, and to believe that truth.

Here are some affirmations I turn and return to all year long.

I will not compare myself to others.

I am loved.

I have value.

I am making a difference.

Grace makes me new every moment, every day.

Nothing I do could make me less ___________ (good, kind, beautiful, loved).

What are some truths that you could stand reminding yourself about?

I hope you know…

You are loved. You have value. You are important. Grace makes all things new.

Love, Ali xo
