Self Contemplation

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt

Continuing on with this radical concept of self-love, I will attempt to offer some insights from my own experience as to how this may be achieved. When I refer to self-love I am really talking about  an awareness  of  self-worth and acceptance. Knowing in your innermost being that you are as individual as a snowflake and there will never be another exact copy of you. What an amazing concept to ponder. You are unique, one of a kind, priceless…. 

Sadly, not everyone is aware of their worth, their inner beauty or talents. As Eleanor Roosevelt suggests, we can give our power over to others because we may feel inferior or less than worthy.   The thing is everyone has something they are naturally good at or feel comfortable doing.  The key is finding your passion. Where you feel your most at ease.  Your real you. 

One of the first steps I personally believe is to be aware of your body language. Ninety percent of what we say is non-verbal. Doing an online personality profile like Myers/Briggs can be most helpful too. We are all individuals, but we do fall into a broad category of personality traits. Remember, knowledge is power and the more self- aware we are, the more capable of achieving our goal of  self-love, warts and all.

Go gently and enjoy the amazing blessings that can come from self- contemplation.
