Baby, Look At You: The Challenge

Yesterday, I wrote a post about self worth and how we are our own worst critics. The responses really weighed on me and I felt as though I ‘opened a can of worms’ as it was so aptly put by one of my fellow Sisterwives.

I know we are a group that writes on the more sensitive subjects and sometimes that may bring forth negative feelings, not only from us but from our readers as well. Yesterday’s post did just that. Don’t get me wrong, the message was well received and everyone was very gracious; it was just hard to see so many of you with so little self worth.

It is never easy to look at yourself, especially if you have had difficulties in your life or have never been shown how to love yourself. However, I believe we can all find the good in ourselves and we can nurture that good. Every person who commented on the post yesterday is known by one, a few, or even all of the Sisterwives. We are very well aware of the talent and goodness in each of you.

Today I am putting forth a challenge.

If you read the post yesterday, today I want you to give me one thing…ONE THING…about yourself that you find positive. Not what someone else tells you but something about yourself that you find valuable. If you have two, or even three or four, bring them to me.

Because I really need to hear them. Just as badly as you do.

This is an exercise in being part of the solution. Will it magically erase all of the bad stuff we believe about ourselves? No. Of course not.

But it is a beginning. What you choose to do next is up to you.

If you didn’t get a chance to read the post then click here. Read it, weigh in if you wish, then come back here to this post and show me some self love.

I’ll start:

I am a good listener. I listen when someone needs to talk and even if I don’t have a solution to the problem, I listened. Sometimes that is all someone needs.

I give. I give of my time, my talent, and my money to those less fortunate. I do it because it’s the good and right thing to do. I expect nothing in return.

I deserve every bit of love I have in my life today.

Your turn…..
