How to Love Yourself Like your Life Depends on It
Starting this site, my main goal is to learn how to really love myself. To do something that I feel embodies my life, my passions, my goals, and that makes me happy.
I want to inspire others, to lift women up to their full potential, and to help everyone remember that we are all worthy of an enchanted life filled with glitter.
Everyone wants to make a living doing what they love, and this site is the beginning of a long journey of doing what I love, and proving that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and never give up.
I came across this book, a really short read, to learn how to accept myself and love myself. To look myself in the mirror everyday and see who my family sees. Someone full of love and potential. I recommend reading it and implementing some of the tips, it is a great book, and only about $4.99 on Amazon!
Welcome to my beauty, fashion, love, Glitter and Gatsby life. Enjoy.
And here are a list of my favorite quotes from Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It:
The truth is to love yourself with the same intensity you would use to pull yourself up if you were hanging off a cliff with your fingers.
I’d been disgusted with myself – I could love another and wish them well, but what about me? From now on, I would focus only on this thought. For me.
Imagine that. Imagine the feeling of catching yourself loving yourself without trying. It’s like catching a sunset out of the corner of your eye. It will stop you.
If you loved yourself truly and deeply, would you limit your life to what you previously thought possible? Nope. You’d blow your own socks off.
Darkness is the absence of light. If you remember this, it will change your life. Changed mine. It is this concept that the practice is based on. Any negative thought is darkness.
I once heard someone explain thoughts as this: we, as human beings, think that we’re thinking. Not true. Most of the time, we’re remembering. We’re re-living memories. We’re running familiar patters and loops in our head. For happiness, for procrastination, for sadness. Fears, hopes, dreams, desires. We have loops for everything.
If you had a thought once, it has no power over you. Repeat it again and again, especially with emotional intensity, feeling it, and over time, you’re creating the grooves, the mental river. Then it controls you.
