Self-Love Rehab:

Step 1 


This month we begin our self-love rehabilitation. For the next nine months, we will walk through ten steps that will strengthen your connection to yourself, and deepen your self-love and -appreciation.


The first thought I would like to introduce to you is the power of choice. In every moment of life you make choices, whether you're conscious of a present decision or not. You must train your to be the master of our choices.   You can't leave them to chance. You can't leave them to others. You can't blame them on your childhood, your spouse, your boss, or any other element.


At the root of our global economic woes, for instance, is a decision left to the blame game and chance. And just as economies appear to be collapsing under a weight of inaction and indecision, so too will the market place of our heart and soul if left without a commitment to bold decision making and actions. The simple fact is that it is all up to us. We were given free will to choose and create our lives according to our vision. And we need to step into this gift. By making conscious, constructive, creative choices, we gain dominion over our lives.


Are you ready to make choices that will lead you to self love? If you are, here's the first step: Make a list of at least ten things that you like about yourself. The list can include your gifts, skills, character traits, physical attributes, etc. Choose to deal with your embarrassment, insecurities, or even guilt, and go ahead, have a ball appreciating yourself.


When I give this assignment to clients, a lot of them feel uncomfortable immediately, mostly because we are not taught to appreciate ourselves. It is considered selfish. So we shy away from appreciating the things we like the most. And if we have to make a list of those things and declare it to others, we feel embarrassed or at the very least awkward. You might experience all these feelings, and here is where the word "choice" comes into the picture. Make the choice. Do it now. Your tendency might be to postpone this. But just make the choice.
