Crack out the pumpkins, it’s October – Time for a new well-being focus!
Perhaps apt for what many agree is the spookiest month of the year, we’re focusing on an area of our well-being people often find the scariest.
Having started the work toincrease our self-awareness, we now need to take that understanding of ourselves, of our strengths & weaknesses, and learn to accept them…warts and all.
Yes, this October we’re focusing on Self-Acceptance.
This is such a big and important area of our well-being, I’ll be covering it more fully in an upcoming post this month. But for now, let’s just say learning to fully accept ourselves is one of the most empowering & freeing things we can do.
To know all there is to know about who we are as a person and choose to love that person unconditionally anyway is a truly wonderful thing.
But like anything life-changing, it’s a journey. If you’ve had a lifetime of negativity being thrown at you by others or by yourself to yourself, acceptance won’t necessarily happen overnight. It’s difficult to suddenly say, this is me & I’m OK with it – even though, we all absolutely should be saying it about ourselves.
I hope you’ll join me on this self-acceptance path this month. Be sure to enter your email in the Stay Happy box below & you won’t miss out on any of it!
To get you started, here are the featured posts for October:
Learning to let go and loosen up a little on the expectations you hold of yourself
Time to get involved!
How self-accepting are you? Have you embraced all aspects of yourself fully or (like I used to be) do your struggle to say even one nice thing about yourself?
Is learning to accept yourself something you would like to do? Or do you feel self-acceptance leads to complacency?
Do you have any tips, techniques or tools (including Apps) that you’d like to share? I’d love to hear them! Accepting ourselves is often a difficult task, so anything you’ve tried that works, I’m sure will help others.
If you’re a blogger and have a post relating to self-acceptance let me know – I’d love to share it with the Living.Pretty.Happy community.
