Monday Mojo – See Your Wonder

Monday Mojo™ – feel-good motivation for the week ahead: See Your Wonder

How often do you tell yourself you’re wonderful?

I’m going to guess that it’s not something you do every day. In fact, I’m going to bet that a lot of the things you say to yourself aren’t as kind as they could be. And you’re not alone.

When I run my classes, people often describe how ‘wrong’ it feels for being nice to themselves. Genuinely. As if whispering words of encouragement to yourself is, well, maybe a bit silly. But I’m here to tell you, it’s not.

In my article, the Power of Words, I explore the relationship between how you talk to yourself and your self-esteem. The direct connection between what you think, how you feel and what you say or do. And how in order to live a happier life, it starts with making friends with the amazing person you are.

This week, set the intention to See Your Wonder. Take a sheet of paper and write the words “Wonderful Me” in the middle. Now write a list of all the kind words people have ever said to you about yourself. Words might include “gentle”, a “good friend”, “lovely smile”, “kind” and “caring”. If you can’t think of any, ask a friend or loved one to do this with you. When you have a list, even if it’s only a few words, next time you find yourself beating yourself up, replace the “mean” word with a kind one. And be sure to say something nice to yourself every day.
