Calling all Women to be Nicer to Themselves

07 Sep Calling all Women to be Nicer to Themselves

So my wish this week is for all women to be nicer to themselves.
As you may or may not know I’m currently pregnant with my 4th (and absolute surprise) baby and this week after a lot of extreme sickness, being unable to eat, drink or get out of bed. This week I got my appetite back but sadly my first reaction was “god if I keep eating like this I’ll be huge…”
What followed was an angry chat with myself and a chat I’d like you to have with yourself, if like me you’ve judge your body harshly and neglected to thank it for all it does.

 

We are so much more than the physical and true joy can only come when we learn to love our whole selves and for me that includes the loose skin, broken veins and cellulite as much as my sense of humor and kind heart.
And it also means if my hungry pregnant body wants 3 almond croissants it can have them!

    So it is Sunday morning and I as I sit here doing my usual hardcore thinking of myself I wish that I could be kinder to myself. Constant thoughts run through my head that I am not a nice person. I don’t know why my husband would want to be married to someone like me and why my friends would want to be friends with me. Wish I could be kinder to myself; I work on it daily. As a 55 year old woman, one would think that I would have gotten over this, but it is a constant battle daily for me.

      Hi Tonya, Its definitely something that takes practice. I find it helps when I remember myself as a child and think that I’d never put such high standards or be so cruel to a child as I can to my adult self. We are so used to focusing on the negatives…it can be helpful (hard at first but helpful) to start writing a list of all the good in you. Sending love Hannah Lilly xxx
