I know that it may be challenging for some. I know it is for me. I've had such a low self-esteem for as long as I can remember. I still do. I've always been the overweight girl, the girl with no friends. When I look in the mirror, I see a fat, unattractive girl who just wants to hide. I feel like I'm not important and have nothing to give to the world.
However, I know I need to change how I view myself. I need to give myself a more positive image. Especially in today's society, it's really difficult for one to have a positive self image. Look at the celebrities out there.
But today, I'm changing that. Today, I will look in the mirror and name 3 things that I love about myself. Today, I will have a more positive image of myself. I will change my self-esteem.
I look in the mirror and here are the 3 things I love about myself:
- My Smile. Everyone always compliments my smile whenever they see my pictures or see me laughing. This usually makes me feel better about myself. I have a nice, pretty smile.
- My love of baking. Baking is one of the things that I know that I can do without messing up badly. People usually love my baked goods. I bake for my friends and family.
- My love for nutrition/fitness. My love for nutrition and fitness has helped me become a healthier person. I've lost weight due to it. The endorphins produced from running and exercising helps me feel better (you can call that runner's high). What's even better is that due to my healthy lifestyle changes through nutrition and fitness, I've gotten my family to live a healthier lifestyle.
There are things that you love about yourself, even if it takes a while to find. I know it has taken me years. Yes, everyone is not perfect. We all have flaws. But, sometimes, it's those flaws that we have to embrace because it is what makes us who we are.
So, I challenge you.
What 3 things do you love about yourself?
