My Challenge Today:

Feeling my most beautiful!

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


 

Beauty is when you can appreciate yourself.

When you love yourself,

that’s when you’re most beautiful.

~ Zoe Kravitz

 


 

Learning to love myself has admittedly been quite a journey ~ one that I believe will last my lifetime. I sometimes wonder why anyone would ever question their self-worth. I am not a psychotherapist, I don’t fully understand the dynamics of self-esteem, self-love and self-appreciation ~ what I do know is ~ it can be fostered. Like a lot of personal habits and attitudes, they can be fostered through daily practice.

 

I just completed a course through edXThe Science of Happiness and I feel encouraged and energized by the research presented. We can realistically elevate our mood, happiness factor and learn to love ourselves through daily practice. I know we all have talents to be celebrated, blessings to be grateful for and a support system to lean on when we need it. We can simplify our lives and add simple rituals that will boost our self-esteem, self-love and self-appreciation in a very healthy way.
