Reasons to Celebrate You!

Quick activity – go look at yourself in a mirror and say out loud the first word that comes to mind. Hopefully, it was something fabulous and positive and uplifting and full of divatude!

If it wasn’t – why not? What is it that’s keeping you from seeing the wonderful diva that you are? Inside and out?


“The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself.” – Mark Twain

Loving who you are is not about being super confident or arrogant. It’s about acceptance. It’s knowing, embracing and loving who you are – flaws and all – from the inside out.

No one can be you as great as you are. Who you are – your words, your actions, your gifts and talents – all of that combined make up who you are. No one else could put all those things together and be as great a person that you are!

We are all uniquely and wonderfully made. There’s a reason why we are the person that we are. Even identical siblings have key differences that distinguish them from one another. Those differences – no matter how small and insignificant they may seem

“I never loved another person the way I loved myself” – Mae West

I recently came across a frumpy to fab challenge over at A Proverb’s Wife that really made me stop and think. We get all dolled up to go out to see family and friends, to work, shopping – why not do it consistently for ourselves? No matter what your daily routing consists of – make it a point to get made-up for yourself and see how you feel afterwards.

How do you show yourself love on a regular basis?
What was the word that came to mind when you looked in the mirror?
Are you satisfied with that or
do you need to commit to changing your self-talk?

  • Great reminder about “self love” and “self care.”
    I should have done the Daily Me Challenge like @4hatsandfrugal!

  • I have not tried the dress to impress myself project before. However, after reading your article and all the comments, I am going to start it tomorrow morning. Thanks for the encouragement.

  • This is exactly why I started the Daily Me Challenge. I need to be able to look at myself in the mirror, or a daily picture, and see someone I love. Thanks for the reminder.

  • I like the idea of getting dolled up on the daily for yourself — it’ll definitely help with keeping an upbeat, positive attitude and self-confidence! Thanks for sharing!

    • You’re welcome! My thought-process if it’s good enough to do for others, then why I am I not doing it for myself? I’m trying to apply that to different areas of my life, too!

  • I like to do dates with myself. I’ll go to dinner or/and a movie or something fun by myself.

    • Love that idea!!! So many people have a thing against going out to dinner or movies by themselves! A nice dinner, a great book and I’m ecstatic! It’s been years since I’ve done that…thanks for the thought Arelis!

  • I love A Proverbs wife frumby to fab challenge and I agree we need to put ourselves first and one of the goals i am working on is taking a shower every morning and getting dressed. Since i work from home I normally just say “well i dont have to go any where so why get dressed” but i do feel much better and im more productive during the day when i get up showered and dressed for the day even if i go nowhere

    • I can definitely relate! I get so much done on the days I’m home and actually get dressed and made up versus the days I stay in my bum-around clothes.

  • What a great idea! I really do need to be kinder to myself!

    • Thanks! We most definitely do – we deserve it!
