This is one I really need to work on. I spend so much time worrying and trying to make sure I have bent over backwards so everyone will like me. This leaves so little time and energy for me to be there for myself. Today is the day I put a spotlight on this. Today is the day that I acknowledge that I can be a good person and people will still like or dislike me. Today is the day I accept that I cannot please everyone all of the time, but if I take the time to make sure that I have stayed true to myself, I will not only find love for myself, but the people in my life will be the ones who choose to stay because of me, and not because I cater to them at the cost of myself.
Today is the day, Today I accept me and love me. Today I know I am enough.
Tomorrow I will carry this with me, and hold it close to my heart.
You are loved.

Each blog post you write is one entry into our random drawing to win an autographed copy of my book, Self-Love Diet: The Only Diet That Works. You’ll also be entered into our drawing to win our upcoming Self-Love e-products that we’ll be announcing soon.
