As the year (and decade) comes to a close, may I make a suggestion for one of your 2020 goals?
I suggest loving yourself - the good as well as the aspects of yourself that you wish to improve. I am making this suggestion because as each year comes to an end, many of us view ourselves and our lives through the lens of judgment. Instead of focusing on the good, we tend to focus on all the areas that need improvement.
Whilst aiming for improvement is good and often necessary, it's also important to focus on loving ourselves, regardless of what we deem needs to be improved.
So how do we love ourselves?
Quite simply, loving yourself starts with liking yourself, which starts with respecting yourself, which starts with thinking of yourself in positive ways.
In practical terms, to love yourself, consider the following:
To reiterate - don't just focus on what you want to improve in 2020 - recognise and spend time celebrating how great you are just because you are you. The more you practice loving yourself, the more your self-worth will improve, which will increase your motivation for your other goals.
I wish all of you great health, happiness, love, laughter and many adventures in 2020.
