Loving myself to a 10!

Updated: Sep 15, 2018

"Loving myself to a 10", what does that mean? To me that means, I am willing to do what it takes to take care of me.

I have been a person who always thinks of others first. Doing for them what I could not do for myself. Seeing the amazing possibilities and talents in others with such clarity. Then when it came to me, blank wall. I didn't believe in myself. I didn't have value, unless someone needed me for something, so I made choices that gave me the illusion that I was needed.

I discovered that I didn't have to live that way. I could be myself, I could love myself and it was all up to me. It's up to me to choose how I want to live and how I want to show up and what I want to believe about myself and my capabilities.

This is me at 4 or so. So sweet and innocent. Get out a young picture of yourself and look at it. Would you talk to that child the way you talk to yourself now?

To a 10!

This reference to "a 10" is using the popular skill of asking yourself to scale something from 1 to 10. Such as, "How willing am I to love myself on a scale of 1 to 10? (1 - being you are not willing at all, and 10 - being you are all in, determined, and committed to making your choices with this new focus of self-love.)
