I’m totally not blowing smoke up your butt. My whole life I’ve struggled with self acceptance. It’s always been easier to beat myself with the giant stick of self judgement. In a weird way, it was a way that I used to protect myself. If I was judging myself so harshly before other could judge me, I could possibly prevent others from judging me, right?! Wrong!
It’s taken me a lot of therapy, soul searching, bottles of wine and meditation to get to the point where I accept myself about 75% of the time!
One of the tools and tricks I did pick up though was to surround yourself with positive mantras. (WTF is a mantra? It’s a saying that you say over and over again)
When I didn’t even think I deserved even a speck of self acceptance or love, pinning, repeating, and reading self acceptance quotes helped me start to believe that maybe just maybe I was awesomesauce.
The road to self acceptance can be a pretty long one depending on how long you’ve been beating yourself up over and over again. (Ever feel like you have a record player on repeat in your head filled with negative messages? Yup, me too)
These self acceptance quotes are one of the tools that I use to get through those days I am “faking it until you make it!” They ground me, and remind me, that I am awesome and worthy of love because I am awesome.

You don’t have to know them all, just pick one or two that really SPEAK to your soul. Bookmark this page, pin it, print out some of the quotes and tape them to your bathroom mirror. Put it somewhere that you can see it every day!
Before you know it, you’ll actually start to believe some of the positive mantras you are telling yourself. And then maybe you’ll be one step closer to accepting the kick ass person that you are!
