The Most Important Person in Your Life

When was the last time you looked in the mirror and told the most important person in your life what a fantastic and talented person she is?

Hmmm—don’t remember, or like never? Time to bring in the Self-Gratitude Swat Team. Oh, ya, admit it—you need help with this one. Putting yourself at the top of your list probably isn’t even on your list, right? I’ll bet you might even be a charter member of the Beat Yourself Up for Not Being Perfect Club, right? Or maybe you are a long-term member of the Make Yourself Feel Bad Because You Didn’t Finish Every Item on Your Too Much To Do List.

Why not start out by taking a look at all the wonderful things you bring to the world every day? Take a few minutes to write down ten things you appreciate about yourself. No one else needs to  see this list—so get wild and crazy, and don’t be shy. Show yourself just how special and magnificent you are. Amazing is a big place—fill it up with you. Are you a great mom, awesome partner, fantastic
networker, quilter, writer, reader, empathic person, organizer? Keep going!

Self-gratitude is learning to appreciate yourself and acknowledge your accomplishments, just like you probably do all day long—for others. Turning that expression of gratitude to yourself is one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself.

Okay, Self-Gratitude Swat Team—our work here is done—the rest is up to you.
