Playing Small Does Not Serve the World

Dear Friend,

Ever notice how we struggle with accepting compliments or even thinking good things about ourselves, like we are almost being conceited?

Yet, we’re supposed to be confident.

It is okay to think good things about yourself. It’s the beginning of thinking good about others. If we don’t think well of ourselves and like ourselves, it’s almost impossible to really like others. We are in too small of a place to like others.

Leading ladies like themselves. They like who they are. And they like others.

If you were to sit down right now and think of yourself at your best, on your best day, when you are happiest, when you are truly letting yourself shine through, what do you see? What do you love about yourself?

Whatever is coming to your mind that you feel in your heart, write that down. Now.

In order to love others, we must first love ourselves or we have nothing to give the world.

It’s okay to love yourself. It really is.

These are the things I love about myself. It’s truly okay to say that, even out loud. It will even give others permission to love themselves, too.

I am thankful for who I am, all the good that I am.
I am smart.
I am creative.
I am inspired.
I am inspirational.
I am soulful.
I am kind.
I am lovely.

You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking. – Marianne Williamson

What do you love about yourself? I won’t judge you or think you are conceited, just let it flow from year heart. That is the real you.
