More often we are quick to notice what is not working in our lives, what we don’t like about ourselves and spend most of the time thinking about what we could have done better or making plans to work on what we don’t like about ourselves.
In South Africa August is the month dedicated to women, almost every single day during this month there was a event happening around the country to celebrate women. I have attended two incredible events in Johannesburg which I believe changed my perception of myself. The common thing about those events was women only event obviously but besides that, their main theme was based around ” what do you love about yourself?”
The first event was hosted by Women Of the World and the question they keep on asking at the event was: “What makes you a phenomenal woman?” The second event I attended was hosted by Womentum and the bold statement at this event was: “She owns her success and don’t apologize for your success”
It took me time to seat down and reflect on those questions. I am quick to notice what I don’t like about myself, quickly work on it and find a solution to be better than I was yesterday. Attending those events and hearing amazing ladies share their experiences and what make them phenomenal and how they own their success, made me realize that I have the right to write 10 pages about what I love about myself, I can be proud of the things I have accomplished and talk about my success openly without feeling like I am offending anyone.
After that, I have decided to write more about what I love about myself, stick it on my vision board to remind me that I am a pretty smart gorgeous lady who can get whatever she want whenever she want it. (Try this out too). Remember: ” What you say and think you attract”. Listen to what and how you speak to yourself.
What do yo love about yourself? What are you proud of? Leave a comment below and let’s celebrate your wins.
Till next Sunday
