What Do You Love About Yourself?

I loved this short article by Radical Self Love blogger Gala Darling, encouraging us to appreciate our good points. We often spend so much time worrying about our 'bad points' that we don't love ourselves for what is great about ourselves! You should really check it out!!!

"If you’re feeling un peu down on yourself, here’s one really easy way to pull your socks up. Start writing a list of the things you love about yourself. I’m not talking about no 5 item list, either. No! I want you to get to 100 THINGS!

Sound too difficult? It’s not, I promise. If you’re coming up totally blank, here are some ideas to get your juices flowing…

<3 The arch of your eyebrow <3 Super-long arms which can reach any item on any top shelf <3Excellent taste & personal style <3 Personal bravery <3 Killer compassion <3 Your dedication to optimism <3 Strong fingernails <3 Fearless wearing of crazy hats & weird sunglasses, no matter the occasion <3 “Get ‘er done” spirit <3 Excellent tea-making skills <3 Unbeatable list-writing <3Relentless curiousity <3 Vast knowledge of beat poetry <3 Super-responsible pet mama <3 Ability to make complicated concepts easy for others to understand <3 Stellar accessorising…

Start writing it in your radical self love bible, or even on a scrap of paper! Carry it around with you so you can add to it when you have a flash of genius insight. By the way, if it takes you all month to complete this exercise, that’s totally okay. On the flip-side, if you blitz through your list in a day, KUDOS! (Maybe you could help your best friend write his or her own!)

Radical self love starts HERE, with a real & honest appraisal of the things that make YOU so brilliant!"


  1. this is such a great idea :)

  2. Awesome post. I am going to share it. Everyone needs to have this around. Go, girl! LOL!

  3. Such a sweet idea - we do sometimes forget about our own strong points don`t we. It`s nice to remind ourselves of how precious we are.
