The relationship you nurture with your own self is just as any other relationships: it requires work! It is truly impossible to look at yourself in the mirror with the same uncinditional love every day because life just happens in the meanwhile. It sometimes brings us down with financial, work or love challenges. Whether you suffer in your relationship, tragically lost someone or on the contrary, a new human has just arroved to your life, these factos influence the picture you have about yourself. Once we have to face difficulties, the inner critical voices start their mission to convince you that you are not good enough. I dedicated a whole chapter (chapter 5, namely) in my first book to these voices and their demaging effects as I have to deal with them, too. In the last couple of weeks I got trapped and I felt that something was off. Since I have already learnt the lesson I knew that the answer to my question what was wrong laid within me, not outside of me. It is never another person or a given circumstance and event is the one responsible for how you feel. It has always been you and the relationship you have with yourself. You are the alpha and the omega of your own life!
I assume some of you skae your heads, thinking how the unpaid bills have anything to do with your self-love? Well, think about it: if you don’t feel worthy for a better job and a better life and if you are blocked to work on the obstacles leading to this life then you have to look within and examine how you see yourself!
Loving yourself is not a destination but a journey itself. A bit long ride but never dull, trust me! There are days when you can barely leave your bed while on other days you feel like conquering the whole world. The goal is to have a healthy balance and know what kind of tools you have to boost your self-confidence and nurture your self-love when you feel stuck and lost.
I know that some of you think of luxury dream holidays and expensive presents you could never afford when we talk about taking care of yourself and spoiling yourself. The truth is so much more simple and guess what, affordable too! And I am determined to prove you that there are at least 100 ways how you can practise self-love in order to be more caring and loving towards yourself. On 1 April I will start my 100 Days of Self-love (#100DOS) and I invite you to join me on this journey. At first just be a visitor, an observer but once you find an exercise that resonates with you, I encourage you to try that act and show a bit of self-love to that woman in the mirror! I will document every exercise in short videos (make sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel to follow here: http://bit.ly/BWPYouTube) or when it is more doable, I take a picture of it and share with you on my website and social media sites.
The final destination of this 100 days trip will be a fantastic experience as I got invited to be a speaker at the Business Vlog Summit in Las Vegas, 2-4 August 2017. I am proud beyond words and so excited to bring my message to the USA. I hope you join me on this journey as you all are part of this success. It is about us all! We all win by teaching others to love themselves not despite but with their flaws and all!
The road leading to Vegas is paved with self-love so you can only grow and gain by being part of this experience. Get ready, we start soon!
