10 ways to be in a successful relationship with..... Yourself!!!!!!!

"You yourself, as much as anybody else in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection."-Buddha

We all have times when we look in the mirror and say "If I could fix this" or "If only I could change that", but changing your outside appearance won't change how you feel about yourself from the inside out. So here's what I did everyday to help me on my journey to self acceptance.
  1. Go ahead hit that snooze button.
Yes, I am giving you permission to hit the snooze button, but not for sneaking in some extra z'ss. Instead take this time to amp yourself up for the day ahead, repeat positive thoughts and TRY to forget about your boy drama or destructive boss. Enjoy your moment of peace before entering back into the cruel reality of the real world. 

   2. Release your "Inner Buddha"

At least once everyday we encounter those evil little thoughts trying to break down our self esteem, Combat the first sign of negativity with positivity. Replace that negative thought with something you love about yourself, whether it'd be your favorite personality trait or a huge achievement in your life. Repeating them daily can help boost your confidence levels.

  3.Always be nice to yourself.

You are your worst critic, so take time throughout the day just to focus on yourself! Try focusing on your positive traits, strengths, abilities, and let go of all the harsh judgement or comparisons you may have encountered throughout the day.

  4.Take a break from yourself!

Hello, nobody's perfect! You don't have to be right all the time, not everyone is happy everyday, and everyone makes mistakes every once in a while! It's totally normal to hit low points in life, embrace them without judging yourself too much.

  5. Count your blessings.

It's easier to love yourself when you start to appreciate all the things you have in your life. Write down at least one thing your grateful for evryday and take some time each day to reflect on it.

  6. Do more of what makes you happy.

Did you stop a hobby because of what someone else thought about it or because you were afraid of what people may think? Think of a hobby that makes you happy and like Nike says "just do it", or think of hobby that you once enjoyed and start it up again! you never know you might start a career out of it.

  7. Raid your closet

You maybe thinking, what? why? Well you know those outfits that when you wear them you think "I really hope I don't run into that cute guy from across the hall today" yeah everyone has them, and sadly it's time to say your goodbyes. Get rid of all those clothes that don't make you feel like you can take on the world and keep the ones that make you feel amazing. To help cope with your loss replenish your wardrobe with some serious retail therapy.

  8.Make positivity lists!

Make a list of all the things you love about yourself, read them everyday in the morning and at night to help remind yourself how fabulous you really are!!

  9.Stop making excuses!

Do that class you've always wanted to do, go skydiving, ask out your crush. Examine all the reasons why you say you can't do something and try to make it happen. There's no better feeling than knowing you achieved a goal while scratching something off your bucket list at the same time.

  10. And Finally...... Embrace yourself!

Like I said earlier, nobody's perfect everyone has insecurities that's what makes us human. Stop picking apart your flaws and accept them. Remember you're imperfectly perfect, and when you truly accept your flaws everything else falls into place.

This is what I did everyday to help me feel confident about myself again. These 10 things helped me on my journey to self acceptance and I hope they help you too!
