The perfect start to my new life is to love and accept all of me

As they say, Today is the first day of the rest of my life. In this new life, I choose to let go of any negative feelings I may harbor about myself and, instead, embrace the real me – faults and all!

After all, it’s my faults and imperfections that make me the perfectly unique individual I am today. No one is just like me and I like it that way!

Loving and accepting all of me make it possible for others to love me completely. When I love myself first, I can more easily love others and their faults, too. In this way, my relationships are based on truth rather than some unreal picture I have of someone or the one they have of me.

Loving myself strengthens my self-confidence and empowers me with an optimistic attitude – both of which can serve to make my life more fulfilled and bring me success.

I can still seek self-improvement, even when I accept my faults. Accepting them in the first place actually helps me to get where I want to be.

Even though I have talents I desire to strengthen, weaknesses I prefer to lessen, and habits I want to break, accepting where I am with them today is the first step to a successful change. Thinking positively about myself helps me improve in a positive way. 

Today, I plan a day of self-discovery and love. I recognize and accept each and every imperfection and I compliment myself on my strengths as they each show themselves throughout the day.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. Do I love and accept all of me?
  2. What parts of myself do I harbor negative feelings about?
  3. How can I turn my frown upside down?
