I want to start by asking you a question. How many times have you told your loved ones that you love them? Your significant other, your children (if you have any), family, and friends. You probably have told them a lot in their lifetime. We know it's important to not only show them that we love them but to tell them often. Now, how many times have you told yourself that you loved yourself? How many times have you looked yourself in the mirror and said, "I LOVE YOU"? Okay, you might think, "that's weird, why would I do that," or you might think, I don't do that but, I do love myself. Well, then why do you it's important to tell your loved ones that you love them, but not yourself? We show our love to our loved ones but, we also think it's important to tell them. So why not tell ourselves?
So, I want to challenge you to start looking in the mirror every day for the next 21 days and tell yourself, "I LOVE YOU." Why 21 days, you might ask, well experts say that's how long it takes for something to become a habit. And just how it's important to tell our loved ones we love them; I want this to become a habit for you.
Now, let me warn you, you might get emotional the first time you do this, and that's ok. Some people get emotional, others feel weird, and others might enjoy doing this exercise the first time. Whatever you feel, keep doing it. I truly believe that it's to do this exercise and tell ourselves, "I LOVE YOU" often. Doing this will trigger something in our brain and cause us to turn on the Self-Love and start showing ourselves more of it.
