You’re Shine is feeling really good about yourself.
When I realized that I could practice shining it made a big difference.
That’s Step 1: Practice your shine.
It was like, OK, I may not wake up feeling really great about myself and then automatically make the “right or healthy choice” but I can practice doing the things that help me feel really good about myself and then when I do, making the worthy choices will be so much easier.
Practice just like an athlete, musician or just practicing math problems for homework.
It was like NEWSFLASH--Of course we need practice!
I can practice doing things that help me feel really good about myself.
Instead of practice makes perfect.
Practice makes progress.
Practice tools like using a Focus Mantra or affirmation, like “I am ready to feel really good about myself. “
And visualizing how you want to feel at the end of the day as you are getting into bed.
Or practice using Soul Goggles to see things and yourself through the lens of love.
Being gentle with yourself and using Soul Soothers.
I have many tools to use.
Isn’t so cool to know that we can practice and get better at this, if it doesn’t come naturally to you.
It’s OK if you don’t always wake up feeling awesome about yourself, you’re definitely not alone, most people are this way I think.
So, the first step in Shining- Practice doing things that help you feel really good about yourself.
Then, Step 2 is practice focusing on what you did well for the day, week or month, celebrating your shine.
All of the times you chose worthiness.
When you chose what was worthy of what you truly want for yourself.
Like I moved some today, I walked for an hour OR maybe it was 10 minutes and that’s OK or I did some stretches with affirmations.
I planned my meals.
I ate healthy at breakfast.
I practiced gratitude.
When I started to beat myself up, I took the opportunity to stop and start again with loving words instead.
I choose one of the healthiest options available at the restaurant.
I spent time soothing my soul by enjoying my Christmas tree lights, snuggling with my pets and listened to some favorite music, candles.
So Step 2 is celebrating your shine, focusing on what you did well, on how you shined.
Instead of beating yourself up with silent words in the shadows.
Doesn’t that sound so much better, to focus on feeling really good about yourself?
