40 Days of Self-Love – First Day

Artist: Giovanni Bellini

Artist: Giovanni Bellini

“Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.” 
― Sophia Loren

What kindness can I give myself today?  What do I do most often to hinder my spirit?: Yes! speak unkind words towards myself. I do it unconsciously and often.. especially when I look in the mirror.. even at that, I cannot seem to even look at myself in the reflection of a mirror, I often ignore myself.

Today, on day 1 of 40 Days of Self-Love, I am going to bask in front of the mirror, naked, untouched, unbrushed, right before my shower, and really look at the beautiful curves of my body.. Examine the shape of my breasts, and send love to the temple which houses my spirit.

My eyes, my mysterious brown eyes, I see are full of light when I did take a minute to look at them. My hair is long and wavy and I love the way it falls on my 40 days of self love challengeshoulders.

Today, I will say:  “You are beautiful” every time I walk past the mirror. ”

You are beautiful.. just the way you are.

Oh.. My I am feeling the love already.

  1. Ah!
    Sigh… how beautiful… Kim!

  2. Ok…so it took me all day but it’s done. Somewhere out there in cyberspace is a wordpress blog called ….. thealmostdaughter that is now me…tomorrow i’ll work on line spacing and linking. I’m exhausted but I did it! 🙂

  3. Today, I posted on my fb page and my writing page my Day 1 of 40…

    I give myself permission to recognize the writer I am. I just won 1st prize in Hay House non fiction contest and it seems like it’s someone else.

    I want to acknowledge that ….that was me….that was my writing…my story..and it was ok.

    I also intend on starting my blog which is something I have been avoiding because I thought I wasn’t good enough. Big Challenges for Day 1.
