When you are alone in quiet reflection, how do you view yourself? How do you feel about yourself? If you tend to see what needs improvement or correction, let me stop you for a minute. Let's redirect that focus on what you love about yourself. List as many qualities you consider beneficial as you can.
I am not denying that we all have stuff to work on, but what can help is to first know the strengths and tools that we have to work with. We can easily forget these when bombarded with self-improvement ads, articles, and others' ideas of success and how we should be. I am here to remind you that you have great qualities already and remembering them is vital for your health and well-being. Look deeply inside of you and make that list to focus on today!
