Need to LOVE yourself? Hop to it!

In last Tuesday's post I shared the gorgeous GalaDarling's spirited ways to life yourself out of a slump. This girl is good, I tell you - and today I need to share her ways to start LOVING yourself, you - yes YOU!   

Enjoy xo
hello gala darling!

<3 Really listen to people when they are speaking.
Look at them, make eye contact & be present. They’ll feel good that you care enough to properly engage them, & you’ll feel great in return.
<3 Make lists of reasons why you love yourself…
& write down (or keep mental lists) of the compliments other people give you. We’re so quick to believe people when they say nasty, unkind or “brutally honest” (ahem, cruel) things to or about us, & we discard all the times we’re told how amazing, beautiful or intelligent we are. Usually this is because our sense of self-doubt is stronger than our self-love. If you can build up the love side of things, this will begin to change.
<3 Think of a way you could make your life easier — then do it.
This could be anything from hiring an assistant to buying a better computer or just learning to say “no” more often. Whatever it is, make it a priority. Do some research on how to make it happen, & then get going!
<3 Know that you are good enough ALL THE TIME.
Yes, you are.
<3 Wear sequins.
They’re a wonderful mood booster. If you’re too conservative to wear them, buy sequinned knickers & wear them secretly!
<3 Be good to your body.
You probably know what that means for you. So what are you waiting for?
<3 Set yourself enormous goals.
Goals which scare you, goals which cause a lump in your throat. AIM HIGH! Most people aim for mediocrity, & that’s exactly what they get. Don’t you deserve better?
<3 Innovate.
Try new things. Shake up your routine. See what works.
<3 Take yourself on dates.
Get dressed up & go to the library, eat a delicious lunch next to the river, ride your bike around the city & make the best dinner you possibly can. I’ve said it before & I will say it again, you deserve your love much more than anyone else does.

Seriously - I love this girl! Read the whole list here: 100 Ways You Can Start Loving Yourself Right Now xo
