One of the largest issues that I have observed getting in my way is my negative self talk. Frequently, it spills over to others.
This past weekend, I was window shopping with my sweet gentleman. Not until after I got home that evening, did I realize how often I had told him I couldn't wear something due to my age, build, etc., etc. What was I doing to myself?
First, I should have been incredibly flattered by the way he saw me and what he thought I could pull off. Deep down, I actually am! That age old adage of when someone pays you a compliment, just say thank you? Yeah, I need to work on that one.
It is not easy to reconcile who I see with who others see. The first step has to be that I discontinue putting myself down. I am sure there is a list of people out there who will be more than happy to do so for me...I will no longer be one of them!
