When I loved myself enough

Reads / www.heidiandcoco.com

I have been a collector of little inspirational books for as long as I can remember. When I loved myself enough by Kim McMillen is a collection of affirmations focused on self love. It reminds the reader to take the time to stop, focus and listen to their inner thoughts and feelings. That when you love yourself first, you are happier and more at peace. That when you love yourself first, that love resonates to all things and people around you. Here are a few of my favourites…

When I loved myself enough

I learned to say no when I want to and yes when I want to.

When I loved myself enough

I quit exhausting myself by trying so hard.

When I loved myself enough

I quit settling for too little.

When I loved myself enough

I came to know my own goodness.

I think we all go through phases when things weigh us down and life seems harder than it should. I have to admit I’ve been feeling like that recently. So after seeing this book again for the second time in a matter of days, I felt like it was a sign to get my copy out and reflect. I asked myself these types of questions – What do I need to let go of to be happier? What do I beat myself up about? How would I know I loved myself enough? What would that look and feel like? Asking yourself this is more challenging that you would think, I guess because being honest with yourself makes you feel quite vulnerable. Push through as I do believe it is quite a powerful and insightful exercise. I then decided to make some of my own affirmations. 

When I loved myself enough

I realised that it was ok if things didn’t go to plan. 

When I loved myself enough

I stopped trying to justify or make sense of things that were not in my control.

When I loved myself enough

I no longer seeked validation from others.

When I loved myself enough

I no longer doubted my intuition but followed it. 

See, powerful!
