30 Days of Self Love

I am following Tina's 30 Days of Self Love over at FaithFitnessFun, and let me tell you it has been a huge uplifting part of my morning each day. As women we are naturally inclined to put ourselves last, and I think this results in an overwhelming sense of guilt and frustration as we try to measure up to others' expectations.

For me personally, I struggle with self love and am often my own worst enemy (even when it comes to messing up a recipe!). I am such a perfectionist that it usually gets the better of me. Sometimes when I cook a new recipe I'll say things like, "sorry if this recipe didn't turn out right, we still have cereal if the food sucks." I need to stop doing that. We all make mistakes. No one is perfect. I have to learn to embrace the positive over the negative - life is too short!

I was so glad to read about Tina embarking on this new journey with other bloggers: helping us embrace our unique qualities, loving ourselves, and being grateful for the awesome individuals we are.
