Good Morning Ladies,
I can't believe we're already a week into November! One of the things I look forward to this month is seeing the daily gratitude posts that many of my friends write. I love reading about what they're grateful for, and it's also such a great visual reminder that I should practice that kind of mindfulness myself.
Usually in these posts people are thankful for things we already expect them to love, their family, friends, health, etc. However, one of the hardest things to be grateful for, though arguably the most important, are things about ourselves. As women, most of us are not raised to be confident, to boast about our skills or taught how to love ourselves. We're taught that our place is to love and care for others and to put ourselves last. This is never specifically said to us, but it's what we're taught by watching our mothers, aunts and grandmothers. I don't want my kids to grow up watching their mom deflecting compliments, complaining about her body and not taking care of herself. This November, I want to start being grateful for me, and act accordingly. No pressure, but I really think you should too!
