Dancin' in PJs & 10 Ways to Love Yourself

Author: JenniferMaster1

Why would I let my 13-year-old record me doing a hip hop dance in my pajamas and then post it on YouTube and facebook? Am I crazy, insane or do I just like to embarrass myself? When I think a little deeper, I think it’s because I love myself. I have confidence in myself and realize that if other people want to point fingers, judge me or criticize me, that’s their choice. I also realize that I am free to be me, and I have plenty of goodness to give to others.

I LOVE what Robert H. Schuller says about self-love in his book “Self-Love”.  He says, quote: “Self-love is a crowning sense of self-worth… It is what Greeks called reverence for the self. It is an abiding faith in yourself. It comes through self-discovery, self-discipline, self-forgiveness and self-acceptance. It produces self-reliance, self-confidence, and an inner security, calm as the night.” End quote.

Here are 10 great ways to love yourself!

1 – Hang around positive people who treat you with respect and compliment you often.

2 – Be your own best friend! Don’t criticize yourself or be too hard on yourself. Remember we all learn from our mistakes.

3 – Find time to work and play! Have a balance that works for you, your personality, abilities and lifestyle.

4 – Give yourself a heartfelt hug! It sounds nuts, but I always enjoy it when my turbo kick/hip hop instructor says, “Give yourself a sweaty hug!”

5 – Make a list of your best characteristics, talents, skills and physical traits. Look at it often.

6 – Set aside 20-30 minutes EVERY day to do something you love to do. It could be reading, talking with a friend, listening to music, working out, soaking in a hot bathtub, doing a favorite hobby or just relaxing with a tasty snack.

7 – Occasionally treat yourself (without breaking the bank as that can be stressful!). Have a massage; go out to dinner (even if it’s McDonald’s); buy a stylish new outfit; take a mini vacation for a day or two; or just buy the expensive ice cream that you like!

8 – Don’t be afraid to change jobs or a career that you’re not enjoying. Be patient with the time it takes to make it happen.

9 – Take some time to strengthen your spirituality, whatever that means to you. It might mean attending religious Sunday services. It could mean getting outside and getting in touch with nature. It might mean taking some time for worthwhile meditation. Maybe it’s mending broken relationships. True spirituality is becoming the best person you can be.

10 – Take good care of yourself because usually, no one else will. I know because I’m a mom. When a child gets sick, the child is fussed over and cared for. When mom gets sick, she still does the dishes! Make sure you are getting adequate rest, exercise, proper nutrition and hydration, chiropractic or medical care (if needed), and time to recharge your batteries. You’ll love yourself more and have more to give to others.

Now go look in the mirror and say, “I love you! You are magnificent! You are wonderful!” If you can’t say that try, “I like myself! I am a great friend to myself!” If you can’t say that, you know you’ve got some work to do!

Oh, did you want to see that silly 30-second hip hop dance? Here you go:
