I've lost confidence in myself more times than I care to admit, and to say it's been difficult for me would be the greatest understatement I could make. After the wedding bells and baby in a baby carriage, I just let myself go. My weight, body, hair...everything. And along with all that went my confidence.
So as part of my Happiness Project 2012 I have realized, I need to make some changes. For the month of February--the month of love--I will focus on loving myself. Fitting. Problem is, as I sat and thought about the focus for February, I questioned...How do I love myself? Thinking about it seems as difficult as seeing the back of my head. As elusive as it is, I know it is necessary.
In truth, I know that loving myself is a prerequisite to loving others and self-confidence will grow as a by-product of self-love. Honoring myself is in fact the only lasting way to release a truly selfless kindness to others. So, the real and lasting focus for the month of February is to remove what obstructs me so I can be who I am, holding nothing back.
