It all begins with Self-Love.
The first person who must respect who we are, is ourselves. Recognize your strength, acknowledge your shortcomings, visualize your goals and create a mission that honor your authentic style, character and goals. When you respect yourself, there isn’t much room left for doubt and it boosts your self-confidence. Confidence attracts people and demands respect from them even without asking for it.
No one is perfect, neither you, nor me, nor the person next to you and the one next to them. But we all have something lovable about us. Make a mini list of things you love about yourself and focus on them to admire your beauty from within and out. When you allow yourself to love who you are, it shows in your day-to-day interactions, and creates a charming version of you that others fall in love with.
No one was born a robot, that’s why we had to create them, and they struggle to try and imitate us with perfection. Because perfection is a mirage. So instead of pressuring yourself to be this perfect being, give your mind and body the nourishment they need to recharge. When you look after yourself, you start every day with vigor and excitement that spreads joy all around you. Listen to your mind and body and allow them to rejuvenate and be pampered, regularly.
To honor, love and nurture ourselves is where our power begins and then we create relationships and a legacy that’s a masterpiece in itself!
Clarity. Truth. Courage. Resilience.
