Small wins today: 

1. Visualization in the morning: A light and strong body. A purposeful career.  

2. Positive self talk: I'm just a very loving person, especially when I realize that those abusive words are not true. 

3. Praying: 

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for revealing to me that I am imprisoning myself by not seeing the value and worth in your creation of me.

Forgive me, Lord, for living in such a way that caused me to place more importance on the opinion of others and myself. 

I have doubted my ability and held myself back from being the person you desire me to be.

I am under the bondage of this doubt and pray that you would release me and give me victory over it.

It has robbed me of peace and joy in my life and has prevented me from living life to the fullest as a child of yours.

Help me to have compassion towards myself and to see that what I perceive as weaknesses, are, in fact, blessings.

May I use those blessings to help others who may also be held down by the same untruth that I have been under. 

Lord, help me to see myself through your eyes and to see the beauty and person as a whole that you have created. You don’t make mistakes, Lord.

Please help me to value myself over anything of this world, whether it be what others think, or earthly possessions.

I don’t want to live up to what I think people expect of me; I want to live up to what you desire me to be. 

Give me the strength to overcome and to see that I am valued. Help me to accept who I am and to have confidence in my identity through you. 

I pray these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.

4. Mirror work: I am beautiful. I love myself. 

5. Talking to my inner child: I want beautiful dresses. I want friends. I want you to stand firmly on my side. 

6. Meditation: "I am enough" meditation, talking to myself with hands over my heart.

7. Yoga mild stretching: Done. 

8. Expressing love to and receiving love from others: I responded to a friend in stress in a compassionate and loving way. I see how a girl suffer from eating disorder, high blood fat, pancreas inflammation, and insomnia. I encouraged her to start a food diary to record changes day to day.

----

Every giant accomplishment is made of very small steps, and to take them one at a time like this is not weak, but precise.

It’s been six days that I didn’t renew this journal. My self-hatred has prevailed self-love and derailed my routine.

When the self-hatred thoughts attack, it’s like a tornado. It comes very sudden. Everything is going well. Routines are being followed faithfully. I feel grounded and supported. I go out with friends and we have a good time. Then all of a sudden, I don’t feel like doing anything except binge eating, watching horror stories and numbing myself out. Painful memories, abusive self talk and triggers are abound and I feel all of these efforts are nothing but a joke. 

However, emotions come in waves. The tornado is gone. I’m back on my feet gain. 

The most difficult thing in practicing self love is to deal with disappointments. I know I’ll be tripped by the same program over and over again, each time a little bit more aware than the last until I can recognize it before it gets me. 

Now, I’m in the aftermath of the last tornado. Everything I’ve built has been torn down. But it’s not entirely a clean slate. At least I know what to do. So let’s start over again. 

 

Small wins today: 

1. Visualization in the morning: giving a speech in front of a large crowd. 

2. Positive self talk: I love myself unconditionally.  

3. Praying:

Dear Angel, please, help me be good and kind to myself. Help me practise self-love so that I may live a life that truly shines. Guide me to love what I am and express this love in a ay

that generously flows from my heart with joy and gratitude. Inspire me to build caring relationships with others from this place of self-love. Please, help me understand that I deserve to be loved not only by the people around me but by the most important person in my life: me. Help me let my self-love grow and blossom so that I may live a fulfilled and thriving life.

Amen

 

4. Mirror work: I can build deeply connected relationship with people. I pick myself up after failure. It’s something to be proud of. 

5. Meditation: I enjoy guided meditation a lot more than before.

6. Yoga mild stretching: 10 min stretching before bedtime. Stretching during working hours.

 

7. Expressing love to and receiving love from others: I gave a 24 min talk to my chat group on self-love. I shared my thoughts on the disappointments in self-love. A guy shared in the group that he has been trying to accept himself but never really liked himself. I said liking oneself starts by letting go of expectations. Stop saying “I’ll like myself if I…”. That’s the most cruel thing you can say to yourself. It’s just disguised abuse. 

I feel a lot more safe in this chat group that I started. I don’t expect people to agree with me anymore. Feelings override right or wrong. 

 

----

Never feel guilty for starting again.

3. Praying:

God Almighty, you created me and put me in this time in history for a purpose. I don't want to go another day without touching and gaining understanding about that purpose. You want and need to do something in my heart. I don't want to go on without that being fulfilled in me. God, speak to me. Speak to my heart like only you can and according to the way you know I will be able to receive

Give me revelation, give me wisdom and give me understanding of your divine will, purpose and plans for my life. Please give me the grace, the ability and the revelation I need to be totally surrendered to you. Please answer me Lord , according to the way you've called and annointed me. Let me do your work. Please set me apart and save me from sin, from my world's system, and from the works of the enemy. So that your will and purposes can be fulfilled in my life

Yes Lord, send me. Use me. Set me apart. Make me a vessel you can use. Make me a part of your army. Strengthen and anoint me so I can stand against the darkness in these last days. I surrender to your will, Lord. I am yours and you are mine, Amen

5. Meditation: Boho's guided meditation for cleansing.

6. Yoga mild stretching: 10 min stretching before bedtime.

7. Expressing love to and receiving love from others: I gave a gift to Yoyoo. She gave a gift to me. She treated me to a big lunch. A girl was asking me about her abusive relationship and I shared my insights with her. Loki talked about her anxiety over job and I shared my insights. 

I'm a lot more comfortable in my skin. I'm more excited about changes than fearful.

Accept that we are not perfect, make silly mistakes, do things that seem so strange afterwards. But love ourselves anyway." 

I felt drifting on a cloud after dinner, watching crime shows to distract myself. I need to have more specific things planned out for my life purpose to ground myself.

Loving Lord, I thank You for my life and give You grateful praise for Your great goodness and abundant mercy, which is new every morning.

I pray that Your perfect peace would guard my heart and that You would provide me with a quiet focus and calm tranquillity within my soul. Guard my mind and guide my thoughts I pray, and prevent me from worrying about what may or may not happen, instead of keeping the eyes of my heart focussed upon Jesus and my ears ever open to His leading and guidance.

Small wins today: 

1. Visualization in the morning: Love is a ball of clean energy that cleanses my thoughts and my body. 

2. Positive self talk: Love heals.  

3. Praying:

I know that The Universe is the one and only source of my being. Spirit Itself created me. Life Itself lives through me. Love Itself sustains me. I am important and connected part of this spiritual universe.

If The Universe loves me enough to create me and to give me life, then I can love and respect myself no less. Therefore, I no longer believe in unworthiness, limitation, and shame. I no longer believe that I am undeserving of the best life has to offer. I deserve and accept all the good things in life – for myself and everyone else in my world.

I  ACCEPT my own beauty, and I see it reflected in the world around me.

                I  ACCEPT my own power, and I use it wisely.

I  ACCEPT my own worth, and I live abundantly.

                I ACCEPT my own love, and I share it freely.

I  ACCEPT my own potential, and I live it fully.

My past, my false beliefs, and my feeling of unworthiness no longer limit me. I accept full responsibility for my life, my thoughts, my feelings and my actions. I may not always like what I do or how I feel, but I choose always to love myself in the meantime. Never again will I judge myself as undeserving.

Growing and evolving feels good. Accepting responsibility feels good. Giving myself permission to become the person I was meant to be feels good. And I deserve to feel good about myself and my life.

And so it is.

5. Meditation: Louise Hay’s Morning Meditation 

6. Yoga mild stretching: I didn't do it before bedtime last night.

Father God, I pray that you help me to always remember that You are the creator and author of life. You knew me long before I was born or even conceived. You wrote the story of my life before I was living in it and you set out a purpose and a plan for me long ago.

Lord, help me to accept the person that you made me to be, blessings, difficulties, and all. Help me to recognize the plans and purpose for my life and to know there is no purpose too big or too small in this world, as you are the one who gave it to me.

Lord, help me to walk a path of obedience on this journey of a purpose-filled life. Open my eyes, my ears and my heart to what you are calling me to do in this world. Encourage and guide me, strengthen my commitment and resolve to go forth each day and live the life you created and set out for me. In doing so, I know that not only will I find myself abundantly blessed, but I will be glorifying you.

Father God, thank you for knowing me, loving me, and having a plan for me before you formed me in the womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. May my works and faith glorify you and encourage others to live their lives in beautiful acceptance of who they were created to be and what they were created to do.
