Remember How Amazing You Are

We are all wonderful, amazing people, each and every one of us. But do we always feel that way? I know I don’t. At times, we can be really hard on ourselves. The Abundance Project’s blog, dated April 13, 2016 shares “Five Ways to Remember How Amazing You Are.”
Stop comparing yourself to others
We all know that we need to stop trying to “keep up with the Jones’s” because behind closed doors they are usually in the same situation or worse than us. Stop beating yourself up over someone else’s fabricated personas. It has nothing to do with you, and it is very damaging to the Real You.
Get rid of negative influences
While you are getting rid of the “make believe people”, I want you to throw out the image of “who you are Supposed to be”; supposed to be with, supposed to have, supposed to do, and supposed to look like. If we could stop trying to live up to some of these damaging ideas and be the real YOU, we would be happier. By eliminating the “supposed to be” you will be able to see the things we are doing right. We will be a better version of ourselves; the loving, positive person that you want around you; be that for yourself and others.
It’s hard to step back and look at ourselves objectively, so next time you have any negative self-talk you need to paint a picture in your mind about who that person is. I picture mine as a “mean girl”. Then I don’t worry what she has to say because by creating the visual of someone I don’t respect, those cutting words lose their power.
Write your problems down
All day I have a million to do’s in my head, which makes me feel like I’m not accomplishing anything. But take a second, as I have done and make a list of the “millions” of things that are troubling you, and you will see there are not millions. I rarely have more than a couple things in my life that are worth worrying about.
Now that you have written your list down, prioritize the list. Not everything is a “TEN”. When you rank them, it allows you to see the problem in a different light. “OH, that one is really not that big of a deal because it ranked so low on my list.”
Be your friend
As a mom, I try to highlight the importance of this to my children. When my son says, “I’m not that smart, I tell him to strop talking about Jeffrey like that, because I love Jeffery. He always laughs, because he knows that he is the Jeffery I am referring to. So, next time you hear or think any negative self-talk say, “Don’t talk to me that way”. You are amazing, remember that!
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
I am my own person and do not compare myself to others.
I surround myself with positive people.
