What is Self Love?

You know, for the longest time I really struggled with it myself. I was way too hard on myself whenever I made mistakes or felt like I wasn’t achieving enough. It caused me a lot of stress and unhappiness.

But then I started learning about what self-love really means – accepting yourself fully for who you are. It’s like meeting your best friend for the first time every day! When you slip up, a good friend would be kind and supportive, wanting to see you keep trying. That’s what I try to do for myself now.

It also means taking good care of yourself physically and emotionally. Making sure I get enough sleep, eat well, take breaks when I need them. And listening to what truly makes me feel good – whether that’s creative hobbies, time in nature, whatever helps recharge my batteries.

Prioritizing your own well-being is so important, because how can you show up for others from an empty place? Self-love helps me feel confident and at peace so I have more to give. I hope you’ll consider trying some small acts of self-care and compassion too. You really do deserve it!

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” – Buddha

How to Remind these 150 things to love about yourself?

One of the hardest parts about loving yourself is remembering all the reasons why when doubts start to creep in. Here are some ideas for how to remind yourself of the 150 things to love about yourself on an ongoing basis:

Make a list: Either keep the full list from the blog post handy as a reference, or distill it down to the 10-15 things most meaningful to you. Refer to it daily.
Journal your reflections: Pick a few items from the list each week to write about – why they’re strengths, stories that illustrate them. This helps them sink in.

Share with others: Tell your partner, friend or family member one thing you appreciate about yourself each day. Teaching others boosts our own learning.

Post reminders: Print your list and put it on the fridge, bathroom mirror or workspace to encounter daily. Digital notes or calendar prompts also work.

Celebrate progress: Give yourself credit for accomplishments, big or small, which demonstrate qualities on your list. This reinforces positive habits.

Notice everyday acts of self-love: Everything from daily skin care to relaxing activities to creative pursuits show you honor the special person you are.

Be patient: Loving ourselves is a journey, not a switch flipped overnight. Commit to this as a lifelong practice of daily growth and gratitude.

The keys are making it a consistent habit and focusing on small wins to develop a language of self-compassion.

“Loving yourself is a lifelong journey, not a destination. Keep your list of virtues close at hand and refer to it each day. Celebrate small acts of self-care, share your light with others, and be patient as positive habits take root. Focus on consistent acts of compassion, however small, to nurture the language of self-acceptance from within. In this way, you’ll reinforce your radiance and keep the flame of self-love burning bright each day.”
