Thursdays. Focus on practicing self-love of my emotions.
When I set a goal and fail to reach it, I tend to beat myself up about it.
When life doesn’t go exactly as I planned, I stress out. I like to be in control.
Being human, I fall short of many goals and life often takes unexpected turns. As you can imagine, this sends me into a tailspin.
Through this self-love challenge, I hope to learn not to be so hard on myself. I want to improve my self-evaluation strategies by rewarding myself for even small accomplishments and appreciating more fully the lessons learned in failure. I hope to learn to let go a little bit. I want to recognize more quickly when I am stressing out over something that I cannot change and re-focus my energy on another area where I can make a difference: loving myself and others more fully.
