DrPortiaFaceShotHappy, Wonderful Friday!!!

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to be kind to ourselves. Of course, it is always good to complete an honest assessment of oneself, and one’s life. However, I think sometimes we become obsessed with self-improvement and personal development; so much so, that we fail to notice and acknowledge what is right about ourselves. Often the message is that if you are not constantly trying to improve yourself, you are being irresponsible, lazy, and/or unmotivated. However, acknowledging your positive traits is not narcissistic, nor braggadocios. It does not mean that you are ignoring personal areas that are in need of improvement. It is a healthy and self-encouraging practice. So today, take some time to pat yourself on the back. Stand in the mirror and state what you like about yourself, and your positive traits; without feeling guilty or self-absorbed.

Dare to love yourself, as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends.
