Feel Better About Yourself

Start the new year by taking steps towards feeling better about yourself. Don't let the stress of everyday challenges get you down and prevent you from living to your fullest potential. Healthy self-esteem is cultivated on the inside. Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves. Begin now...

A negative self-image is a major happiness hurdle.

It is almost impossible to lose yourself in the throes of joy when your inner critic serves as a steady reminder of how you aren’t enough and don’t deserve the life you crave.

A damaging flood of continuous thought can overwhelm you and convince you that your mind speaks only the truth. 

Just because you think it, doesn’t make it true.

Even folks with healthy levels of self-esteem and self-worth struggle with navigating through the difficult days.

It is hard out there and you are regularly bombarded with real-life examples that force you to question yourself:

Let’s be honest here, too many of us are spending time looking longingly through a window into someone else’s life.  You hear stories of people following their dreams, creating thriving businesses, chasing passion projects, traveling the world and wonder, “How do they do that?”  You convince yourself that their lives are the result of perfect timing, luck, fame, and trust funds, or all of the above.  You also assume that anyone claiming to have a life filled with unbreakable bonds, love, support, wealth, purpose, bottle service, and joy must be broadcasting through a filtered façade.

It’s sometimes hard to admit that people are actually crushing it because it leaves us with an incessant nagging caused by our own unquenched desires.  If we convince ourselves that the only reason “those people” have achieved is because of who they know or because they are stronger, smarter, more creative, more worthy, or more beautiful than us, than we don’t have to take any action or assume any accountability.

Why aren’t you living a more meaningful, fulfilling, and joyous life?
