The best Christmas gift for you!

acceptance growth self-care Dec 22, 2020

Give yourself a gift this Christmas.  Love yourself.  Accept yourself.  Flaws and all. 

That doesn’t mean there aren’t things you want to change and improve.

 

It doesn’t mean you are stuck with certain aspects of your life. 

 

And it's not selfish.  As a matter of fact, it's biblical! (see below)

 

You can love yourself, accept yourself, AND believe you deserve more. 

 

Notice the difference - it's not about not being enough as you are.  It's about deserving to be the BEST version of YOU that you can be! 

Sometimes we berate ourselves and compare ourselves to others.  And you know what? There will always be someone better than you in one area or another of life.

My 40’s have been the best so far, and I fully expect it to keep getting better. I still have a bikini pic from about 15 years ago to encourage me to dream big (or small), but when I look at this younger version of me, I feel bad for her. I am able to tell her “I am better than you”. You see, she really struggled.
