Get your free workbook: 30 Days of loving yourself

Sharing is caring!

I had my birthday smack in the middle of the lockdown.

And I prefer experiences as birthday gifts, not stuff. Experiences give you memories and those you can keep for ever and ever.

1. Longwood Gardens, PA

Last year we went to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania for my birthday. Best cappuccino I’ve ever had. The gardens were nice too.

2. The Met, NYC

The year before that we went to New York to see an opera performed in the Met. The singing was indeed world-class.

And those magnificent chandeliers that move out of sight just before the performance starts? I gaped as much as Cher did in the movie Moonstruck.

3. Monticello, VA

Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s house in Virginia, was my choice the year before that.

You see, I share a birthday with this American president. That is, if you remember to adjust for different calendars.

He was born when the Old Style or Julian Calendar was still used in the US. When I was born everybody had already switched to the Gregorian Calendar.

The house itself? All I can say is … location, location, location.

This year having experiences wasn’t an option

This year having experiences was out of the picture.

What’s a birthday girl to do?

Well, I created a 30-days-of-loving-myself workbook.

The exercises each take at most 5 minutes, but it is a gift that keeps on giving, because it is reminding me to celebrate my life every day.

Here are a few samples:

DAY 4: Today, I am celebrating a way I am showing up for myself.

It doesn’t need to be something impressive, it just has to be something I did for myself, like apply for that job, finishing school, exercising regularly.

DAY 15: I can really dance and live as if no-one is watching.

Today, I am reminding myself that even when I stress so much about what other people are thinking of me, chances are all they’re doing is thinking about themselves.

DAY 18: So, what do I really like about me?

Today, I am reminding myself that when I approve of myself and really like myself, it is easier and more pleasant to be around me. For other people, but for me too.

Love just feels amazing ...

Why is it so important to love yourself?

Isn’t it self-indulgent?

Not at all.

Let’s reread the exercise for Day 18.

Today, I am reminding myself that when I approve of myself and really like myself, it is easier and more pleasant to be around me. For other people, but for me too.

So, what do I really like about me?

It is so true.

When you love yourself, it is easier for others to be around you.

And when you love yourself, it is also easier for you to love others and be around them.

You cannot give what you don’t have to give

So, start feeling the love for yourself inside you.

By feeling love, you are the one who will feel great.

Loving yourself is always available to you.

Loving yourself is always the better choice.

Because love feels amazing. And it makes your life so much better.
