My word for February is, you guessed it, love.
I’m sticking to picking a word for each month. January was revitalize and just that one word really helped me focus on revitalizing my passions, health, and energy.
So, that being said, in February I am focusing on love and most importantly self-love.
I intend to fall even deeper and more madly in love with myself.
The other day, I had this crazy experience where I walked by a mirror naked and there was this light shining directly above my head, which usually showcases all of your imperfections, you know that awful angle that shows all your cellulite, flab, etc. Usually seeing this would make me feel a twinge of sadness realizing that I was bigger than I thought, but when I saw myself, I couldn’t believe how sexy I looked.
I stared straight at my imperfections and thought “wow, I am so beautiful”.
It was the first time that I really embraced my imperfections and felt so loving towards my body. It was like out of the blue this shift happened in my brain, where instead of feeling a little bit worried/sad, I instead saw myself as I am and thought, “I am perfect already. I love my curves, every inch of my beautiful self” and actually meant it.
I just simply accepted myself as I am. It was a truly beautiful moment.
For February I’m doing a 30 day cleanse with no gluten, dairy, soy, refined sugar, and alcohol. I’m not doing it for weight loss reasons, but rather to retrain my mind to listen to what my body needs.
So often, I feel like my body reacts to what my mind is thinking. I want to get more in touch with what my body is saying and then have my mind react.
I’m so excited to take this month to nurture my most important relationship in my life – the one with myself. I am focusing on being more aware of my thoughts and only speaking to myself with kind and loving words.
I will leave you with one of my favorite mantras:
I am in a loving and supportive relationship with myself.
