Today I read another great blog post from one of my fellow art nesters, Jolee Jane, and her post absolutely inspired me.
After reading her post I was tempted to go to my mirror and write I love and adore myself to use a prompt for me to say these words while looking at my image. Well I didn't write the words because I thought Brian would wonder what in the world I was doing writing this on our mirror. I did repeat this statement aloud about three or four times and each time it made me smile more. Even though it felt great to do this I felt a bit silly. I think I have been programed to feed into our societies judgemental criticism of women, success, our bodies, and keeping up with the Jones's. I often hear that little voice in my head that I am not good enough just as I am (bringing tears to my eyes, so sad to admit this.) But I am getting to the point that I am starting to whisper back I am good enough. I love and adore myself because I am embracing my dreams to live a creative life that is uniquely mine. It is bringing me strength and hope of sharing the joy of the creative journey with others. My artwork has meaning and connection to who I am and I love that! So please, run to your mirror and say aloud "I love and adore myself" while looking at your image. It may be hard, you may have tears, but say it mean it and repeat it until you believe it. Any thing is possible when you love and adore yourself!
