Practicing Self Love; A series to focus on practice (part 2)
“Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love” Brene Brown
If you are reading this blog, this is the second of the series as we focus on the practice of self love and how it is an ongoing practice. Read Part 1 of the Blog here
Stop Comparing yourself!!
Practice self love by stopping comparisons. I have written another blog that is dedicated to happiness and how comparison kills it. comparison is one of those things that happens without awareness and contributes to unhappiness all the time. Especially for women, from print media to social media comparison is thrust into our faces and senses all the time. It is that much harder and important to realize when comparison sets in. You are a goddess in your own right, being you is your superpower, believe it with every particle of your being. Spend your energy to nourish your mind body and soul and build your own path.
Surround yourself with people you feel good with!!
This is critical, it has been my pleasure to provide a space where you leave all your worries outside the red doors of the studio and walk into a space that is filled with love and feel good vibe. Outside of the studio do a mental check of people who are around you, do they inspire you? Be mindful of who you spend your time and energy with because your energy is precious to you. Do not give it away.
Be compassionate when sh*t hits the fan!
So many of us (myself included) tend to beat ourselves down when we need our love the most. When we fail or screw up or someone rejects us, that’s the time we often beat ourselves down so much so that if you were to say it out loud to yourself you would not like that tone, does beating someone who’s lying down, sounds fair? I don’t think so, why would you do it your wonderful beautiful self?
Choose to be most loving and forgiving with yourself when things don’t go as planned. When you stumble and fall. When you say the wrong things. When you feel dejected about a spin, or a trick? Remember the first day your very first Intro class 💜. Ask yourself what you need and then spray that all over yourself and for extra unicorn magic wear some glitter and allow yourself to sparkle.
Practice this for two weeks and wait for the rest 😊
