So I've been on a journey of self-love this year. Overturning lots of my old habits and treating myself with the same love and attention I would to a good friend. It's been an illuminating ride. I speak to myself worse than I would an enemy, I'm really hard on myself and have unrealistic expectations.
What does it all boil down to? A feeling of 'I'm not good enough'. This was quite a revelation to me.
I've always been into self-development and loved yoga for many years as it calms and settles a naturally anxious side to my personality. But at the end of the day it seems I've always continued this journey as it makes me feel better but it's only through a great life coaching course with @elenabrower and @danielletridenti that it highlighted this huge lack of self-love. Wow.
So for the past few months I've been falling in love with myself and I've found it hard! I couldn't connect into an authentic heart space to write a dream about myself.
Yeah sure I used lots of the 'love' word but none of it rang true. I wanted it to be true but I was so distanced from me that it took a long while to see that shift. And I'm still in it.
At first when we had to write out our dreams about our lives, I wrote loads on every other aspect of my life but only one line about my Relationship to Self. Because I thought it was boring!! Yes, I had a lot to learn.
In the next few posts I'm going to share my practical tips on how I'm falling in love.
