June's Affirmation: I choose to love myself more.
I CHOOSE TO LOVE MYSELF MORE......
What does that even mean? Something uniquely powerfully for each of us.
No pressure if you don't know what this means for you right now, it's definitely a journey to be explored and can only be found within yourself. So create time to have lots of dates with yourself, on and off the mat.
Affirmations are phrases, when repeated over time have the ability to create new neural networks. So literally reprogramming the conversations in our minds. It's like downloading a new app. (We just gotta make sure to delete the old ones that no longer make us feel awesome!) So cool and exciting. Go neuroscience!!! #geekingout
Soooo, Sandra courageously shared what this affirmation means for her right now - "I will choose to love myself more by CELEBRATING all that I am at this very moment. Not letting the things that I can't control get me down and seeing the BEAUTY in not only myself but this crazy weird WONDERFUL WORLD we live in."
For me, it means staying connected to myself. A few weeks back I was taking a shower and questioned whether I had conditioned my hair or not and that freaked me out. Then I wondered 'When was the last time that I actually got to ENJOY a shower instead of always rushing to the next thing?' This forced me to take an inventory of my life. I decided to let go of the things that do not bring me JOY, all the way down to my socks! If I can't say I love it, then I don't want it. So for me, choosing to love myself more means only going after and keeping WHAT'S RIGHT vs. getting caught up in what's next because there's always going to be the next thing.
A new member recently shared that so many things had gotten in the way for her to take a yoga class that day but she kept reminding herself, "no, I need this for me. I need to take care of me." and she made it! It seriously made my heart smile because that's what choosing love means. The world needs more happy heart!
